Pacific Palisades house description

Gated, secure and quiet, with a gorgeous lake and towering trees this vacation spot has been designed for relaxtion and good times.
Located just 5 minutes from Santa Monica and the beach, and directly across the street from Will Rodger's State Park. The house sleeps up to 12 (10 in real beds and 2 on convertible sofas) with 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, huge sunny kitchen, breakfast room and lanai, spacious dining room and living rooms. Outsidebrick patio with large fire pit, sun loungers and an amazing terrace to take in the lake views. Free Wi-Fi and Direct TV with HBO, CINEMAX and SHOWTIME are included.

The Lake House is the ultimate property for entertaining. While we are happy to accommodate requests for larger events and parties with outside guests, please note that additional fees will apply. Give me a call to plan your event.


Filled with beautiful gardens, mature trees and lush greenery, the serenity and beauty of this hidden oasis is made complete by a stunning lake which is shared with the owners who live next door.

'We wanted the beauty of the beach and the ease of living in a lake side cottage but with a fun modern vibe. So when we renovated and decorated the house we went with serene whites and splashes of vibrant color. Many of the walls are covered with larger than life, high definition photographs of flowers and animals, shot by a sought after modern photographer.'.

The Master bedroom has a king bed with a feather topper, down comforter, and 1200 count luxury sateen sheets. Divine.

The Green bedroom sleep 4 with a bunk bed and a twin bed all made with 800 count sheets and soft down comforters. Fun.

The Tropics bedroom has a queen size bed, 1400 count silky sateen sheets, a large dresser, glider rocker and a private entrance to the patio which looks out over the lake. Quiet.

The Sting Ray Room features a king size platform bed with 1200 count sheets and duvet, feather bed topper and down comforter. Flat screen TV with Direct TV premium package. Sweet.


The large kitchen is fully appointed and is a baker's dream with a big refrigerator, four burner gas stove with griddle, Bosch dishwasher, double Thermadore convection oven, toaster, microwave, blender and coffee pot.

The back patio and terrace look out over a grove of redwoods, huge sycamores and the lake. The patio features a large gas fire-pit circled by adirondacks for storytelling and smores. Chaise lounges and a sun umbrella make for a lovely spot to read in or out of the California sun!

The back yard is vast with towering trees that shade secret paths and a small stream that meanders under little wooden bridges. Waiting by the lake is a little rowboat that you are the captain of. Fish for bluegill and large mouth bass from the rocky shore, hand feed the friendly turtles(who think they are dogs) or step through the swing gate and explore one of the last natural creeks in Los Angeles, a spring fed stream that runs year round! Salamanders, tadpoles and tree frogs abound. This is a quiet and safe haven where children can play, discover and revel in nature all day long. If you can pry yourself away from all this, the famed white sand beaches of Santa Monica, The Pier, fine dining, shopping and sightseeing await you, a mere 5 minutes away!

Guests are welcome to use boogie boards, skateboards and scooters and to enjoy a game of croquet or bocce ball. The owners are right next door and can be as helpful or as invisible as you wish.

Car: Recommended

1.3 miles down the street are the pier and the beautiful beaches of Santa Monica. Twenty minutes up the coast and you can surf Malibu's world famous pointbreak, Surfrider! This house is nestled in a neighborhood called Rustic Canyon which is just across the street from historic Will Rodgers State Park, where you can horseback ride, mountain bike and hike. A five minute drive up Sunset Boulevard brings you to charming downtown Pacific Palisades where great restaurants, fabulous boutique shopping, coffee and yogurt shops, grocery and drug stores, a weekly farmer's market, and other small town pleasures await. The town library and park are there too with great play structures, soccer and baseball fields, tennis courts and basketball for all to enjoy.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 17 years and live here in the Palisades with our two girls, ages 9 and 11. We love our little community where we are fortunate to work and play. Our children attend public school, we go to church on Sundays, and can't imagine living any where else. Mark and I are both Midwesterners, I come from a rural part of Peoria, Illinois and Mark is from Chicago. I love having guests and enjoy creating an atmosphere where people can relax, feel welcome and have a wonderful time.

Why the Owner Chose Pacific Palisades:
Before we bought this property we used to drive around the neighborhood and imagine that we lived here. We just loved the rustic feel, the closeness to nature and the farm freshness of the whole area. Once we had a picnic near the creek behind the very house we would later buy and I remember Mark and I looking up at the giant sycamore trees and feeling like we had found our dream home at last.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a lushness, a greenness to this place that feels very much like Costa Rica. Yet, the pond, with it's banks covered with boulders and rocks, surrounded by redwoods and fields of blooming flowers, makes us feel like we are in the Colorado Rockies. There are rope swings and hammocks, paths to explore and grassy knolls to picnic on. Concord grapes and blackberries fruit in the summer as do strawberries, blueberries, lemons and limes. Fresh mint and watercress are available year round in the creek. The slate walls that meander through the property are a great place to sit quietly and take in the sun rise over the canyon and a treehouse sits high above the pond in a giant sycamore tree waiting for adventurers to visit. My husband Mark is an amazing gardener and he has had planted thousands of blooming flowers and trees. In March over 6000 giant daffodils bloom covering the banks around the lake in a carpet of bright yellow. In April and May the white dragon wisteria is blooming. It makes a tunnel of scented white flowers as it trails down from the 15 foot trellises. In June the orange day lilies fill the fields. July and August the cobalt agapanthus are exploding everywhere. Pink, purple and magenta cosmos bloom and wave around the lake in July and August. Every season has its beauty here. Even in the fall, Mark has carefully selected oaks, sweet gum, pistachia and hickory trees that turn bright orange, red and gold. It's beautiful to see their colors mirrored perfectly in the lake's water.
