This is a heavenly, Spanish style home with plenty of street parking and a private driveway that fits 2 cars. This home is inviting, warm, clean, comfortable, beautiful and calming. Guests come here for a great work space, family gatherings, leisure, fun and to experience all that Southern California has to offer. The simplicity, cleanliness, PRIME location sets this home apart from others. Front foyer has natural stone flooring and skylight on a raised ceiling. Feel free to play music with the piano, guitars, and percussion instruments at hand. The dining room divides the living room and kitchen. The kitchen is higher end with all the modern conveniences and granite counter tops. The cabinets are loaded with the essentials for coffee, tea and cooking. Laundry room is off the kitchen. The family/living room is super comfortable with cozy couches and a large screen TV . There is a gas fireplace and beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The hallway leads to two open, inviting, clean guest bedrooms with a queen size bed in each room and plenty of closet space/hangers. SOFT, CLEAN linens and blankets are included. The guest bath is stunning...all natural with river rock, water fall glass doors, rain shower.

A newly designed den/office with a flat screen TV and French doors open onto an outdoor roofed cabana and outdoor office. A chaise lounger couch opens into a Queen bed in this room, creating additional sleep space if wanted. The Master bedroom has a king sized bed with a master bath that has a jacuzzi tub and shower. A larger deck with a double chaise opens off the Master bedroom. The home is eco friendly with both solar and thermal panels for the electric and pool.

In the very back is the swimming pool, perfect for laps, pool vollyball and major fun. It is positive-ionized, with slightly salty water. The pool ranges from 3-9 feet deep. SWIMMERS ONLY PLEASE. The Water temperature is dependent on the weather. The pool is warm in the summer and cold in the winter. There is large jacuzzi is attached to the pool and can be heated for a surcharge yearlong. The surcharge will be 25-50 depending on the amount of energy needed to heat:-) I only run the jacuzzi 4-5 hours at a time choose your time and always before 10 PM(this is a residential neighborhood and most people work during the day and sleep at night. )

The outdoor living room is sweet with a fire pit and a comfy vibe

There is a large trampoline, Patio, Outdoor living area, Fire Pit and BBQ in the side/back yard.

Feel free to use a bicycle cruiser. (Please bring your own helmets)

NO animals live on this property but I would be open to responsible dog owners with well behaved pets:-)

Deb 310-913-1601 purchased this estate in 1991

Why Deb 310-913-1601 chose North of Wilshire

This property was originally built in the 1920's and continues to praise the Original Spanish style, yet delights in the newer, more open and modern living spaces. Hand crafted over the years with love and fun. This home has 3 private bedrooms and a den/office that has a chaise lounge that will convert to another queen sized bed. 2 full bathrooms, one with an all natural rock, rain shower, and the master with a jacuzzi tub/shower.

There is separate, private fully equipped poolhouse adjacent the pool that is not included in this offer but could be. I usually stay there when I am in town. I do not rent this out when I have guests in the house

What makes this estate unique

This property is private and enclosed with a privacy fence. Pool area, pool house and back yard, private patio w/ luxurious patio furniture, hand crafted fire pit and gas BBQ all for your personal private use. It's nicer than a cabana at the RITZ!!! It's a a slice of heaven for relaxing, playing and gathering with family/friends/colleagues. There has to be a change for events requiring the pool/hot-tub over 6 people due to the costs of pool/water maintenance. Enjoy the ocean breeze, ride some bikes, jump on the oversized trampoline, soak up sun and listen to music, play in the pool and chill in the jacuzzi.

The pool is outdoor and utilizes ionized water and is also solar heated. The jacuzzi is simply delicious and a must in the winter.

The property is just south of the infamous Montana Ave and close to unique boutiques, yummy restaurants, libraries,the Ocean, and the city of Brentwood/UCLA.

There are bicycles to get around town with, A large enclosed trampoline to practice your flips or just play on

- Bike ride or walk to Brentwood farmer's market or the Santa Monica 3'rd Street Promenade, beach and ocean. Main street is close, funky and fun!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

There were eight of us staying here for my daughters wedding. The location was perfect, very centrally located in Santa Monica, close to Montana where everything is. The house was great, the beds were amazingly comfortable and the back yard is just fabulous! Deb was very easy to communicate. I would stay here again for sure.

This was a great place for my family to stay in Santa Monica. My 2 girls (7 and 4) loved the trampoline and the tree swing. Deb was wonderful and so accommodating! The home is in a great area. THANK YOU!!

Enchanted Setting!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family holiday vacation. It created a warm atmosphere for new and renewed family bonds. We immediately felt at home and enjoyed time both inside and outside in the pool area and around the fire pit. It was an interesting and fun place to be. We hope to stay again.

Awesome location, fun and quirky house with a great outdoor/pool area

  • 4 of 5

This house is in an awesome neighborhood in Santa Monica and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We stayed at this house during a guys weekend to see a football game in LA. There were 7 of us (all 40-something year old men) former college buddies and we all enjoyed the place. The living room has ample room for at least 5 or6 to lounge and watch a huge TV. There's a large kitchen, a dining area, and a cool swing in the huge tree out front. But the real treat of this house is the backyard pool. First, the pool is huge and the hot tub was a hit! Second, the side porch is decked out to make you feel like your in some exotic cabana somewhere. Very cool. Finally, the graffiti/art on the wall around the back yard makes this you will not forget. It's definitely has an eclectic feel, but it's clean and comfortable in every way. Debra was a very accommodating host and while this probably wasn't the ideal size for 7 grown men (there are three beds plus couches and air mattress), we totally made it work without any problems. I think this house would be perfect for three couples or a family to stay for several days (especially because of the pool).

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL ME AT 3109131601 WITH ANY QUESTIONS. I recommend communicating PRIOR TO BOOKING SO WE BOTH CAN BE HAPPY. The city of Santa Monica does only allows home sharing License # 216122. I want my vacationers to be happy, so will always appreciate a conversation PRIOR to booking! I can work with the pricing and it is possible to rent just one or 2 bedrooms. Feel free to call and we can talk about what works for your situation. Also I encourage Google mapping the property to see if the location is great for your wants. Property is convenient for family fun/enjoying all of Santa Monica, Brentwood, Bergamot Art Station, Westwood, Venice, Malibu, Universal Studios, Downtown LA, Hollywood, Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm, Big Bear Mountain and lake , Nature Hikes. Holidays are in high demand and thus more expensive. When the days are longer in the spring, summer and early fall the pool is solar heated and jacuzzi boosted with a gas heater. I charge seperately for the gas heating of the jacuzzi, which takes a little longer in the winter, because the water is cooler.
