Balinese architecture influences this private oasis in the heart of the Santa Monica Canyon, just two blocks from the beach. The moment you open the antique Monastery gate, you are transported to the ambrosial South Pacific with lush gardens and stone waterfalls. Solid teak throughout is the principal feature of the home, with split-faced limestone walls and a fireplace adorned with Indonesian coral accents.
The secluded four-bedroom home has three primary suites and an expansive covered deck with a luxe limestone spa. Heated seats and a built-in kitchen make the rooftop deck an ideal space to congregate, reflect, and enjoy peekaboo ocean views. The home embodies the union of sustainability, beauty, and innovative design that is the hallmark of its LEED-certified master builder—Sorensen Architects.
It comes equipped with a stunning retractable skylight, solar panels, and Western and Corten laser-cut steel doors that welcome you into the pavilion. Warmth and modernism unite with Bentley leather-wrapped custom handles, terrazzo floors, and Basalt tile bathrooms. A custom Italian glass elevator, privacy louvers, and automatic shades, doors, and lights make this home an emotional and state-of-the-art residence.
Tucked behind the private gates, a large Sycamore tree presides over the home, extending a mantle of peace and shade over the domestic oasis. Water features, both inside the home and on the deck, deepen that effect. The home is also equipped with a two-car garage and new amenities added in 2020, like an elevator, bathroom fixtures, Polyform custom closets, and insect screens.
