808 Woodacres Rd
Santa Monica, CA 90402
With a legacy that spans over a century, Woodacres Estate enjoys the distinction of being one of Santa Monica’s most coveted residential opportunities to be brought to market.
Surrounded by majestic pine trees and lush gardens, Woodacres Estate presents a peaceful sanctuary on 1.223 acres — one of the largest flat parcels in the City of Santa Monica. A gated presence at the end of a private cul-de-sac north of San Vicente Boulevard places the historic property close to the Pacific Ocean, beaches and the restaurants and shops on Montana Avenue.
Only two private owners have ever stewarded the property, which today consists of an original Italian Renaissance-style mansion designed by celebrated architect John Parkinson in 1921, incredible grassy yards, a guest house with a two-car garage, a tennis court and a pool. Designed as Parkinson’s personal home, the main residence offers more than 4,700 square feet with five bedrooms and 3.5 baths on two stories. The two-story guesthouse, built by the second owners in 1970, offers three bedrooms and two baths. The estate’s next owner is invited to continue the legacy begun by Parkinson a century ago.
Woodacres Estate presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to recreate today’s version of a Santa Monica estate compound with a new mansion and possible restoration of the main residence as a guesthouse.
