Property description

We are firm on 31 nights or longer. If you are interested in that length of stay, please read on...

Old world allure in a modern town! Located steps from Montana Ave -- the most desirable neighborhood in Santa Monica -- this 1940's mostly remodeled, 2 story, 2 bedroom, is more like a home with a custom mahogany door entrance and a private back entrance with a charming patio that leads you into the property through French doors.

This property of 1500 square feet is adorned with museum quality antiques, rugs and art. It has 2 bedrooms and a large bath upstairs with a separate bath and shower with colorful, octagon shaped tile and lots of cabinets. A quaint 1/4 bath off the kitchen/laundry with state-of-the-art washer/dryer, chef quality, gas oven range, side-by-side refrigerator and dishwasher all in stainless steel, gorgeous Golden River granite counters, with a large farm house sink and Waterworks nickel fixtures.

The exterior boasts a white picket, fenced in, lush green lawn, colorful flowers and beautifully landscaped yard. Darker, refinished wood floors throughout and new window coverings. Convenient little touches like built-in shelves, bay windows and custom doors. The common area has a custom arbor bench with red trumpet vines growing overhead and mature trees and a one-car private parking garage is included.

Walking distance to all that Santa Monica has to offer. The quaint, yet sophisticated, tree lined Montana Avenue with its variety of restaurants and boutique shopping. Only a few blocks to Palisades Park for a lovely walk and views of what the locals call the Queen's necklace view, Santa Monica Bay to Malibu. 3rd Street Promenade is close by with its great shopping and weekly farmer's market, Santa Monica Place and the world famous Pier.

TESTIMONIAL
My family and I stayed at this lovely property for a month. It was old world charm in a modern town! We enjoyed making meals at home in the upgraded kitchen…wow! We were able to walk to Montana Avenue and enjoy the many restaurants and boutique shops. I highly recommend this property and hope to be back soon. Mina, New York

Location

Montana Avenue is a quaint, sophisticated street that stretches from the West...Ocean Avenue where you can stroll along the beautiful Palisades Park overlooking the Pacific ocean with views of what the locals call the Queens Necklace from mountainous Palos Verdes to totally cool Malibu. Head East towards Brentwood and you’ll find all of the charm and conveniences of a neighborhood village with everything from gourmet coffee shops to Starbucks, fine Italian cuisine to a mom and pop artisan cheese shop and shopping...

...did I mention the shopping? Montana Avenue has the most fashion forward boutique shops in Santa Monica. You won’t find a Banana Republic here but if that’s what you are looking for, mainstream retail stores and restaurants are within walking distance at the world famous 3rd Street Promenade and Santa Monica Pier.

Ask me about Perry's Cafes Eat. Bike. Play. and their many locations along the beach where you can rent bikes, enjoy a 'Beach Butler' day on the sand with full service including beach chairs, an umbrella, towels and a food/beverage service at your chair.

 

Manager info

Why Santa Monica:
This charming property was built in the 1940's and is one of the few properties in the area that remains an original. But don't let the age fool you. The owner has upgraded most of the interior and the property grounds.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I'd be delighted to recommend a couple of great spots for great food and drinks all of which are within walking distance from the property. Coffee: Gourmet - Cafe Luxe at Montana/12th; Starbucks at Montana/7th. Breakfast or lunch - Marmalade just 1 block away. An amazing burger and artisan beers on tap - Father's Office at Montana/11th. Green's Up for a healthy GIANT salad at Montana/7th. Spumoni for a romantic Italian lunch or dinner. R&D for lunch or dinner and a full-bar at Montana/14th. I can recommend more...just ask!
