An extraordinary "California Dreaming" resort like oasis lies behind the gates of this Santa Monica (8500+sq ft lot) home NORTH of Wilshire and just blocks from the acclaimed Montana Ave! Light & bright is felt throughout the house as the ceiling was raised in living room and many skylights were added. This house also offers a beautiful chef's kitchen with large granite center island & stainless steel appliances which opens up to the dining room. The main house, with its 3 bed/3 baths, has been updated and also includes 2 bonus rooms, one with a kitchenette that opens to the backyard. This room offers endless possibilities including a home office, home school, yoga/workout, playroom or perhaps a teenagers “hangout.” French doors in the kitchen lead you to the outdoor dining space which is convenient for the chef. The main bedroom includes a walk-in (cedar lined) closet w/lighted hanging clothing bar, bath w/ separate deep soaking tub & large shower w/ rainfall shower head. The backyard is EXCEPTIONAL as it is functional. The combination of colors is pure eye candy! From the blue in the gorgeous pool (with large jacuzzi) & fire pit glass, the stylized landscaping of green grass & trees and the array of colors from the flowers & vines, transports you into your own private retreat in the middle of Santa Monica. Looking for something multi-generational? Look no further! A separate structure includes 2 very lovely self sufficient casita style units with their own entrances, kitchens & bathrooms. One of the casita's generates income year round. Ease your mind of soaring energy prices with the use of a large amount of installed solar panels. You will simply be amazed at the warmth this entire property exudes. Nothing is cookie cutter on this lot! Certainly not to be missed!
