The spirit of Santa Monica Canyon – rustic, quiet, and communal. It’s a place where you can escape the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles under a protective canopy of trees and mountains – yet you’re only three blocks away from the beaches and restaurants. Shopping in Pacific Palisades, downtown Santa Monica, and Montana Avenue is ten minutes away. This is the backdrop upon which the owner-couple chose to design their hidden architectural compound, nestled into a canyon hillside. The owners and Griffin Enright Architects conceived the property as a live, work, play retreat for the ultimate in privacy and frequent entertaining. The property consists of a main residence with attached guest suite and separate guest house, bringing the total to four bedrooms, three full baths, and two half baths. The main residence won the Builder’s Choice and Custom Home Design Award. Among its features: a voluminous great room and kitchen with skylights throughout. Large front and rear sliding glass doors open to create a breezy indoor/outdoor setting. The great room connects to a spacious primary suite with dual bathrooms and closets. Nestled above the main home with a separate entrance, is an attached guest suite with kitchenette, full bath and light filled canyon views. Architectural plans available for interior staircase to connect guest suite to main residence if desired. Steps from the main residence is a guest house with two separate bedrooms/studios and full bath, which can flex to become a guest suite, private yoga studio, art studio, workspace, or anything else in your imagination. A 2-car garage and extra parking space complete the offerings of the property. Consider this compound as a destination, not just a home. Indoor/outdoor spaces for intimate candlelight dinners. A state-of-the-art projection system for movie nights with friends. Space large enough to accommodate social events of up to 100 people. Professionally landscaped grounds with drought-resistant plantings that surround you and your guests in tranquil nature. It’s an inspiring California coastal vision made complete in one of L.A.’s best-kept secret enclaves.
