Rich materials and exquisite landscaping set the tone for this finely crafted property at 332 12th Street in Santa Monica’s upscale North of Montana neighborhood.
With six bedrooms and eight baths in over 6,550 square feet, the home takes advantage of its spacious setting with an airy, open living/dining/kitchen area over wide-plank walnut floors.
The view from the front door sweeps all the way to the leafy backyard oasis with its broad heated patio, olive trees, and huge grassy lawn.
The freestanding kitchen is a blend of creamy Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble, honeyed burled walnut and subtly displayed Miele appliances. An open breakfast area adjoins a covered patio.
Nearby, a full dining room is set for more extensive entertaining. An open three-story steel staircase ushers light from a large skylight all the way down to the vast lower level, home to a large family/game room, theater with wet bar, and gym.
Two-bedroom suites here are open to lightwell patios. Sequestered on the top level, the romantic master suite features vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet, an intimate covered balcony, and a showstopping bath wrapped in wall-to-wall Swiss Alps marble.
The home is served by 11-zone HVAC, solar and Control4 tech. A detached two-car garage completes this exceptional property, listed by Charles Pence at $7,800,000.
