For over 64 years (since Valentine's Day 1958) and running, this magical early California Spanish Estate has served as the family compound for four generations. Set on almost a full acre (43,130 Sq Ft per assessor's map) of sprawling grounds, perched on an expansive "rim" lot overlooking the famed Riviera Golf Course and the majestic Santa Monica Mountains, this extremely rare offering is widely considered to be in the most desirable location in Santa Monica - characterized by huge lots, gorgeous views, major estates and the very best lifestyle -- in close proximity to Ocean Avenue and the beach, the Country Mart and Montana Avenue. A tall gated entry, long private drive and large motor court welcome you into this world apart - a stately 1924 Spanish filled with romance and charm at every turn and reminiscent of the historic Hotel Bel Air and the Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara. Inspiring architecture inside and out, resort-like grounds consisting of lovely gardens, rolling lawns, large pool, walking paths, original water feature and detached guest casita-all with the backdrop of awe-inspiring views. The signature elements of the period can all be found here including thick plaster walls, French doors opening to porches and terraces, stenciled beamed ceilings, hand-painted tiles, original hardware and fixtures, ironwork, paneled doors, terra cotta tiled floors and seven fireplaces. Grand scale living room with tall barrel vaulted ceiling, adjacent sunroom, formal dining room and sunny breakfast room open to patios and large grassy yard overlooking the commanding views. Eight bedrooms, five and one half bathrooms plus fabulous two-room guest house. Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a magnificent estate property affording the best lifestyle in the very finest Westside location.
