A nearly century-old property hits the market
By Dolores Quintana
A sleek estate from nearly 100 years ago is the most expensive real estate on the market in Santa Monica, as reported by Patch.com.
The mansion sits on nearly an acre of land and has been single-family owned for four generations and is now up for sale for $22 million.
The luxury home has eight bedrooms and 4.75 bathrooms and 5,007 square feet of living space on a sprawling lot. The lot overlooks the famous Riviera Country Club and the Santa Monica Mountains and is considered a “rim” lot. This listing is an exceptionally rare opportunity and is considered part of the most desirable area of Santa Monica itself.
This area has huge lots, beautiful views, luxury estates with one of the best lifestyles available in the city. All of this is located close to the beach, Brentwood Country Mart, Ocean Avenue and Montana Avenue.
The estate dates back to 1924 and is built in the dignified Spanish style and has a gated entrance and a long private driveway that ends in a drive-through lot. The listing described the estate as resembling the Bel Air Hotel and the Biltmore Hotel in Santa Monica in style. Classic Spanish architecture underpins the home’s beautiful design inside and out and it boasts lavish gardens and lawns, a large swimming pool, walking paths and a freestanding casita with magnificent views.
