ARCHITECTS: Marmol Radziner Architecture

Location: East Channel Road, Santa Monica, Californie

8 bedrooms, 10 baths
9,500 square feet
200-square-foot pool cabana
40,000-square-foot lot

This private sanctuary is located off of a quiet road on a nearly one-acre lot in Santa Monica Canyon. At the center of this light-filled two-story home is a double-height living room anchored by a double-sided indoor-outdoor fireplace.

The ground floor features a family room, kitchen, and dining room, as well as a butler’s kitchen, 1,000-bottle-capacity wine cellar, theater, gym, guest and staff quarters. Expansive green roofs extend the living area on the second level, where the den separates the master suite wing from the remaining bedrooms.

Nestled into the trees and hillside, the home offers views onto a large front yard and rear yard with a pool, outdoor kitchen with island, and a covered pool cabana. The material palette of rustic oak cabinetry, oak floors, and a variety of beautiful marble and quartzite countertops create a warm and inviting retreat-like home.
