If a modern farmhouse-style home is something you are drawn to, you’re not alone, and you certainly don’t have to be surrounded by corn fields or undulating pastures to live amongst the time-honored look. Located in the desirable North of Montana district—brushing shoulders with Pacific Palisades to the West and Brentwood to the East—this 4,730 square foot Santa Monica abode conveys that traditional farmhouse appeal upon first glance, yet beyond the exterior cues (a whitewashed exterior, gable roofline design and plenty of windows) lie the characteristics that elicit those feelings we all crave in today’s world: comfort and safety.
Open and welcoming with a large center island that can comfortably seat five, is the home’s charmed kitchen. A full-size Sub Zero fridge is just one of many new and fashionable appliances that grace this light-filled space. The golden tones of the brushed brass hardware against the cooler hue found in the blue/gray cabinetry creates a beautiful (and calming) medley for this well-appointed kitchen, which also plays host to an adjoining breakfast nook.
The home’s dedicated office, located on the first level, is anything but stuffy. French doors open out onto the side yard whenever one is in need of a gentle breeze or nature-inspired respite.
Acting as an informal entertaining space is this stone patio connecting the home’s sweeping, main living room with the backyard. Vertical wide-plank siding, petite lanterns, and wood furnishings add to the rustic, farmhouse-style appeal of this alfresco transitional space.
Enveloped by mature hedges, the backyard is fit for entertaining with a pool, spa, stone patio, and BBQ area. Best of all, the property’s advantageous position on a wide lot west of 19th Street allows for maximum sunlight to bathe the enclosure.
Retreat to the upstairs master suite to find a perfectly polished living space complete with vaulted ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling principal fireplace, and secluded balcony overlooking the yard with sunset views. Continue into the ample stone bath to luxuriate in a soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower, or access the dual walk-in closets.
