Rarely does such a special property become available on one of Santa Monica’s most desirable streets. This one-of-a-kind offering, just minutes from Ocean Ave., 3rd Street Promenade, Montana Avenue, the pier and sandy beaches of Santa Monica, is an idyllic paradise. The site encompasses approximately half an acre in a magical, park-like setting that feels miles away from the city. The property includes the main house, guest house, play house, a large swimmers pool, cabana with fireplace, greenhouse and sports court. The style brings a casual yet elegant Cape Cod charm capturing the true essence of the East coast with original quarter-sawn oak floors, wainscoting and rare Batchelder fireplace tile.
The interiors were remodeled in 1995 including an expansion of the second floor giving the home a total of six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Features include a large living room with fireplace, two family rooms, library, an over-sized formal dining room, a large, eat-in kitchen, office and two downstairs bedrooms. The second floor features three bedrooms, a large upstairs family room and a beautiful master suite with high, pitched ceilings. Large picture windows bring the ocean breezes and the tranquil views inside and many downstairs rooms have original, pocket doors as well as French doors that open to the outdoors.
The property is gated and very private. It is enveloped on all sides by mature landscaping, including many fruit trees. The centerpiece of the backyard is an incredible jacaranda tree that creates the perfect backdrop for entertaining on a large or small scale. Ample on-site parking is also offered. This property is the perfect blend of East Coast meets West Coast beach lifestyle in the heart of Santa Monica.
