Custom built by GAIA Construction, along with Desai Architects and Italian interior designer DI Group, this warm, contemporary Santa Monica home, represented by Cindy Ambuehl, showcases a seamless, open floor plan, soaring ceilings and ample natural light. A floating wood and glass staircase is an art piece in itself, while European white oak floors and sophisticated design elements, including a chef-caliber kitchen with Miele and Zephyr appliances and Binova cabinetry from Italy, speak to the home’s unrivaled craftsmanship. Arcadia pocket doors line the living spaces, opening to remarkable outdoor entertaining areas, including a large grassy lawn, patio, heated pool and spa, dining area with barbeque, and pool house with bar, bathroom and outdoor shower. Just moments from the shops and restaurants on Montana Avenue and Brentwood Country Mart, the home is the pinnacle of Santa Monica sophistication.
Deftly executed by Rick Perkins of Perkins Development Group, this tech-savvy architectural estate is perched in the hills of Brentwood with views stretching from the Getty Center to Downtown L.A. Represented by Billy Rose, the estate features complete smart home automation, an underground car lift and full off-the-grid capabilities, powered by solar panels and backed by Tesla batteries. An integrated helipad for a personal drone helicopter graces the expansive pool terrace. Premium designer finishes and exacting attention to detail put this home in a class of its own, including 28-foot wide glass walls that foster a harmonious flow between the sophisticated kitchen and living areas and expansive pool terrace. With its gallery-like design, an enviable lower level is fit for a discerning art collector and includes a large gym, far-infrared sauna and room for a spacious theater.
