“When you realize how perfect everything is,
You will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.”
Just lie back in one of the lounges at Cabana #3, gaze at the majesty of the mountains in the distance, study the beams of sunlight glittering across the blue of the pool and spa…yes, this is close to perfection. If ever there was a home in the valley of the Santa Monica Mountains that can offer owners a Zen experience, this is it. The builders, designers, decorators put it all together, leaving nothing to chance --- in order to create a property that will satisfy the demands of the most scrupulous buyer. 46 canary palms, 37 Queen Ann palms, and 6 olive trees have been planted along the front and back of the 2-plus acres, along with 50 cherry trees on the back perimeter, all on irrigated drip systems with timers. The pool and spa are situated in the middle of a 7,000 sq. ft. grassy area, with 360-degree views of the mountains. Three cabanas lie on one side of the yard, with a dining table and firepit close by, and on the other, a charming studio/gym/play room, made from recycled barn wood. Along the back patio is a 20’ long propane glass and volcanic rock fireplace, and the side of the home is configured so that it can become a 12’ movie wall, with plenty of seating for guests.
And that is just the outside! The architecture is sleek, clean, modern, white; but as you walk through the rooms, there is a sense of tranquility and calm: bamboo flooring, stacked-stone and barn wood walls of gray and beige, accordion doors looking out towards the pool. The open floor plan is ideal, with a kitchen having a double-island of quartz, professional refrigerator, double dishwasher and oven, wine fridge, and walk-in pantry. This area is light and efficient, a chef’s dream! Adjacent is the great room, with 20’ open-beamed ceilings, bar with fridge, and fireplace. A large laundry room and powder room, with efficient mudroom, is perfect for cleaning up after an afternoon of sunbathing. The master bedroom is flawless: fireplace, bath area with skylight and soaking tub, large his & her showers. Both guest rooms have en suite baths, one with barn doors to the walk-in closet, one with blue-tooth mirrors and stackable washer/dryer. The office can also be a 3rd guest room.
With rain barrels to collect rainwater, herons and songbirds nesting in the trees, and Triunfo Creek running along the back, what more could an owner desire? Rumi, the 13th century poet, said that “If light is in your heart, you will find your way home.” The way is here...
