Everything about this home is designed to convey warmth, brightness and a welcoming spirit. Custom designed in collaboration with longtime Canyon architect Scott Prentice, this Santa Monica Canyon charmer was built to be true to the original California bungalow, exuding its New England character. From the front approach, striking handmade barn garage doors, soothing colors, and a impressive white brick chimney, immediately convey this is a unique and special property. Wood burning fireplace, beautiful wide white oak floors throughout the entire house, clear and open sightlines, and custom finishes, all evoke a feeling of calm and tradition. The sleeping porch off the primary bedroom is reminiscent of the classic East Coast sleeping porches. The primary bath boasts teak woodwork and spa tiled Japanese soaking tub and walk-in shower. Spoil yourself with the solar radiant floor heating in every room of the house. The upstairs common space extends to the exterior porch, providing a private outdoor oasis under a towering redwood. The backyard invites both family and entertainment, with an expansive sport court, large grassy yard, wood burning fireplace, built in Viking BBQ, hot tub, and picnic area under beautiful olive trees, providing the perfect al fresco dining. At night, when the Canyon stills, enjoy the sound of the crashing waves of the ocean.
