              Our house is located in the exclusive Santa Monica Canyon off of Pacific Coast Highway. Walk to beach and restaurants via the famous canyon steps in less than 5 minutes. Annenberg Beach Club with Olympic size pool, beach volleyball, yoga and Rustic Canyon Park with tennis and basketball courts and playground within walking distance. Malibu with its world renowned surfrider beach is just a 15 minute drive North. We provide surfboards!! Miles and miles of bike path along the ocean, breathtaking sunsets, endless strolls along the water and of course a MUST SEE family attraction, the SANTA MONICA PIER with entertainment, spectacular rides (rollercoaster!) and dining.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We are a family of four with 2 teenage children. Charles is a graphic designer in a Hollywood studio creating movie posters and movie advertising campaigns. Maria designs and builds homes. Carina is 17 years old, Senior in Highschool and Jonah, 14 years old is an avid surfer and skateboarder.

              Why the Owner Chose Santa Monica:
              We bought this home from my husband's family. It was built by his grandmother. The home's location in the canyon away from the city within walking distance to the beach is superb. You can leave your car in the driveway, grab a towel, may be a surfboard, and just walk the famous canyon stairs down to the beach in a few minutes. That is priceless! At least in Los Angeles.... :-)

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home is in walking distance to Santa Monica Beach!! Everybody comments on the amazing light we have as the house faces the ocean to the West. The gentle breeze keeps a hot summer's day cool and the tranquil serenity of the home and garden are inviting and relaxing.
