Beautiful Country French Manor House on the coveted Amalfi Rim of Pacific Palisades prime Riviera on a 30,500+ sf lot, with breathtaking VIEWS of the ocean and the twinkling lights of Santa Monica canyon. Reminiscent of a Relais et Chateau with charming details so rarely found today – real hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, three wood burning fireplaces, gorgeous doors and windows, antique sconces. The gardens delight with profusions of lavender, roses, citrus and olive trees. The double gated front driveway provides the utmost in privacy. The site of “too many to count” family celebrations over the years, the oversize pool and spa area provide the perfect setting to enjoy the sweet ocean breezes of Pacific Palisades.
A commodious front hall leads directly to the “heart of the house” family room with a wood burning fireplace, sunlit circular breakfast room and a secret wine cellar. Behind the kitchen is the maid’s room and bath with its own private entrance, now converted to a gym.
A beamed “gallerie” overlooks the pool and gardens and connects the entry to the two downstairs bedrooms suites. To the right of the entry, the simply perfect fireside living room with its soaring beamed ceilings and Venetian plaster walls leads to the library paneled dining room.
The dreamy master suite with its own wood burning fireplace has a balcony with an astounding ocean view and two separate walk in closets. The quiet adjacent den, two other family bedrooms and laundry room complete the upstairs.
There are nooks and crannies for hide and seek, dream catcher dormers in the upstairs children’s rooms, a beautiful lawn for croquet, rose arbors and a fountain. This is a home where memories are made.
Located in the Canyon Charter Elementary School District, rated #1 in Los Angeles Unified.
