A private, gated creative’s paradise awaits in Santa Monica Canyon! Canopied in vibrant Jacaranda, Sycamore and Bird of Paradise rests a romantic 1920s Spanish Hacienda with a separate studio on a spacious 7,000 square-foot flat lot.
A serpentine rock path guides you inside the main home, which has been thoughtfully remodeled and expanded by its longtime owners. The two-story interiors span over 3,000+ square feet as the main level opens with a broad sky-lit entry and rich pine floors. The floorplan flows effortlessly to a bright step-down office/guest room with a built-in desk and storage, plus a powder room and gracious living room, punctuated by expansive window doors framing the patioscape and lush greenery. A formal dining room with a built-in buffet extends to a large chef’s eat-in kitchen with peninsula island, stainless steel appliances, built-ins and bay doors leading to an alfresco patio garden. Adjoining is a bedroom with bath ideal for live-in staff. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and a large laundry/utility room. Two bedrooms include the generously scaled guest jack-and-jill suite with a walk-in closet and shared bath. The gracious main suite is its own private haven with a separate den, large bedroom, walk-in closet and full bath. Picture windows, French doors, and Juliet balconies stream sunlight and magical garden & canyon vistas throughout the upstairs. An original stairwell even leads to the garden.
Brimming with Santa Monica Canyon history and charm, the main home was originally used as a fire station. Many authentic exterior character details recall this unique past, with handsome Spanish tile roofing, arches, coving, and fine, wood-worked balconies blend harmoniously with newer interior upgrades such as French tiles, custom fixtures, pitched ceilings, custom builtins, HVAC and security. Not to be missed, a most welcome Creative’s retreat - The Grand separate 700+ sqft studio and bath. Everything you could possibly need for modern living “where the mountains meet the sea" is right here in this unforgettable creative live /work/ play hideaway!
