Located minutes from the beach in the seaside neighborhood of Castellammare—often compared to the Amalfi Coast in Italy for its sweeping mountain and canyon vistas, ocean views, and ideal microclimate—this gorgeous contemporary compound offers incredible comfort and privacy in one of the most coveted enclaves in Pacific Palisades.
Soaring ceilings, walls of glass, and an abundance of natural light lend a sense of space and scale to the open-plan living room, with a thoughtful design taking full advantage of available views. Glass sliders open to a wide balcony showcasing whitewater views of the Pacific coastline, and clerestory windows draw eyes to the commanding Santa Monica mountains. Interiors are enhanced by a limestone fireplace and European white oak floors, cabinets, and ceiling details.
A formal dining room sits adjacent to the main foyer and is complimented by designer light fixtures and French doors that lead to a front patio. A chef’s kitchen boasts Wolf cooktop stove and ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerators, a marble slab breakfast bar, handcrafted stone floors and tiles, and walk-in pantry.
A striking master suite at the main level features a marble fireplace, Italian-style showroom closet, elegant bathroom with stand-alone tub, and a balcony overlooking ocean and mountain views. Two well-appointed guest rooms, also at the main level, are spacious and bright and feature a shared bathroom with high-end finishes.
An expansive lower level is an entertainer’s dream, with an open living area, wine room, fully-equipped bar, theater room, two additional guest rooms, plus a room ideal for a gym or office. Glass sliders off the lower living room and guest rooms open to a sprawling backyard with a fire pit and lounge area, overhead heaters, waterless grass and a pool and spa, framed by tall hedges for privacy and seclusion.
Additional finishes include LED lighting, a Control4 Smart Home system, well-placed skylights, upper and lower-level laundry rooms, drought-tolerant landscaping, and whitewater views. Architectural reveals are repeated on both the interior and exterior wall detail that lend a singular bespoke quality to this sanctuary in the hills.
