A study in modern-classic style design, this house was designed in 2006 by Melinda Gray of Gray Matter Architecture, located in Santa Monica, California. Nestled in a privileged location overlooking the Santa Monica Canyon this three-story four bedroom, four bathroom dream home offers an open loft style environment. Voluminous and breezy, large expanses of living areas offers a seamless connection to the outdoors thanks to a sliding glass door system that disappears into pockets in the wall. This helps to illuminate the spaces in natural light, brings in fresh ocean breezes and allows fluid access to the expansive lap pool and gardens. The pool entices the homes inhabitants to relax on sun loungers that surrounds it, and a waterfall off the hot tub offers a tranquil water feature. On the main level, a sculptural floating staircase offers a visual separation of spaces in the center core of the home. Spread out over this level of exposed structural steel and hard wood surfaces is a luxurious chef’s kitchen, a family room, dining room and plenty of entertainment spaces perfect for hosting dinner party guests.
We spotted this fabulous property for sale on Deasy Penner + Partners, listed at a mere $7,200,000.
On the second level, you will find a luxurious private master suite offering ocean views as well as two additional bedrooms. The third level features a mezzanine loft/library space that is open to below. The interiors of the home was lavishly furnished by interior designer Schuyler Samperton, who selected high-end furnishings and finishes to complete the look.
