At the crest of the hill section sits a home with a true reflection of a love affair between the beach and Santa Fe lifestyles. This spectacular estate sits on a prime corner in the prestigious hill section and delivers picturesque panoramic ocean views of Palos Verdes Peninsula, Catalina Island, Point Dume and Channel Islands. The surrounding homes fall away from the property and magnify the stature of this magnificent beauty. This is a home like no other. It is authentic and unique with historical details.
Striking antique doors found at the home’s entrance, reclaimed from an age-old church in Mexico destroyed in an earthquake. The grand foyer with a large circular stained-glass window illuminates and greets you, and a short flight of stairs leads you inside this spacious warm three-story home—rooms are open, inviting with gorgeous soaring viga and latilla wood ceilings. There’s an earthy, sophisticated atmosphere that courses through the space, coming mainly from a medley of high-grade, authentic materials and an abundance of natural sunlight. Warm distressed hickory floors that contrast with smooth terra cotta colored Saltillo tile and an artisanal collection of stylishly rough-hewn doors throughout. Despite its unmistakably Santa Fe roots, Southern California design cues have been seamlessly blended into the estate.
The home was strategically built with a reverse floor plan making the most of ocean views; a communal great room and spacious kitchen are found on the top floor. Equipped with two gleaming islands that is chef approved for your entertaining desires and an elegant dining room with built-in china hutch that’s host to a striking coastal panorama. Also, on this floor is the library, a grand space of custom woodwork that reaches to the ceiling and includes bookcases and a ladder that keeps all novels in reach. Open the Cathedral doors and enjoy the fresh-air deck overlooking the sparkling saltwater pool and spa, where one can absorb the sounds of waterfalls that surround your senses in peace and tranquilly.
This home offers separate yet open living spaces that one must see to believe; Salt water pool and spa, library, custom rock climbing wall and an impressive recreation room that offers endless fun.
“This home has great synergy where family and friends will want to gather” notes Gillespie-Host.
Love Where You Live…
