Magnificent gated retreat sits high on a street-to-street double lot (over 20,000 SF) in Santa Monica's desirable Sunset Park neighborhood, commanding astonishing vistas of the coastline, Marina del Rey, Penmar Golf Course and the shimmering Pacific. Within its vine-covered stone walls lie over 6,700 square feet of timeless beauty, from dramatic brick barrel-vaulted kitchen and hand-painted dining room ceilings to soaring windows, lavish fireplaces and romantic view balconies. Five luxurious bedroom suites are highlighted by a primary bedroom sanctuary with two bathrooms, sauna, two walk-in closets, fireplace, view balcony and access to a loft, one of the home's two offices. Upscale amenities include a superbly outfitted chef's kitchen, climate-controlled sit-down wine room, elevator, central vacuum and laundries on two levels. Within the magical grounds, an array of outdoor patios and fountains invite as curving pathways wind through the leaf-dappled landscape. A pool, spa, built-in BBQ, rose garden, koi pond and orchid house complete the setting. Close to top-rated schools, the beach, Santa Monica shops and restaurants, and LAX, this offering is an unprecedented opportunity to own a Sunset Park masterpiece, for sale for the first time since it was custom built in 1994.
