Nestled amongst majestic pine trees and with stunning views of the canyon, mountains and the ocean, this home evokes a sense of being at a coastal resort. And yet this peaceful, private and sophisticated get-away is only minutes away from the Palisades Village, Santa Monica and freeway access. Elegant simplicity and compact efficiency define the living space with walls of glass, clerestory windows and skylights that embrace the natural environment. The entry leads to the gracious and open living space with doors that open to the patio garden with magical views. A cozy den beckons you to settle in for a nice read, a movie, or engaging conversation. Both bedrooms are ensuite. The master is a retreat in itself with picture windows and a skylight to enhance the feeling of resting in nature's embrace. A large, walk-in closet also serves as a private office. Lushly landscaped with fruit trees and inviting spaces for rest, reflection, and entertainment, this mountain-garden setting is a welcome respite from the pace of City life.
