This 5 bedroom, 7.5 bath Mediterranean home sits on the rim side of Alma Real, the most desirable street in the Huntington Palisades. It comes with the option of purchasing the neighboring lot as well, a prime parcel with a massive yard perfect for development and expansion (together, the properties total 34,000+ square feet).
A double gated entrance at 641 Alma Real leads to outdoor parking for up to 10 cars, plus a private 2 car garage. Gorgeous landscaping and rosebushes all around. The entry hall boasts a 30 foot ceiling and grand staircase that rises toward a central dome with windows. On one side, find a formal dining and music room with separate wet bar and plenty of natural light. On the other, a refined study with wide shelves and fine hardwood. Also on this floor – guest bedroom, powder room, 2 bathrooms, formal dining room, walk-in pantry and impressive chef’s kitchen. This abuts a separate family living room with fireplace, high ceilings and flat-screen TV.
Upstairs, enjoy an extra-large master suite with wrap-around windows, French doors and its own den and wet bar. This may be the most glorious room in the house. Spacious walk-in closet, master bath with 2 toilets (1 w/bidet), large tub and shower w/steamer. The suite faces west, with perfect afternoon light, ocean views and California sunsets.
A lovely outdoor patio – providing additional views to the ocean, Catalina Island and mountains – stretches around to a spacious en-suite children’s room. A stone staircase leads down from the master suite directly to the pool. Also on the 2nd floor are two additional en-suite bedrooms (one w/ private balcony), lots of closet and storage space, powder room, Juliet window and upstairs den.
The backyard and pool overlook a brand new park currently in development, which will provide scenic hiking and biking trails through the Palisades all the way down to the beach. This will certainly up property value in the near future. The pool is adjacent to a covered cabana with lounge chairs, wet bar, fridge, outdoor dining area, dual fireplace and its own changing room, spa and sauna. Also enjoy your very own backyard putting green.
The workmanship of this home is unsurpassed – the previous owner built it to live in, not to flip, and every detail has been thought out carefully and realized with the best materials. Alabaster and Murano chandeliers throughout. Subzero, Wolf, and Viking appliances. Beautiful exposed copper piping in back. Imported limestone by the pool. Everything is controlled by fully-automated Crestron system.
The prime location of this home cannot be overstated – rim side in the Huntington, on a quiet, safe and very family-friendly street. Easily within walking distance of great public and private schools, parks, restaurants, banks and all that the Palisades has to offer. This is truly an opportunity not to be missed.
