The Rare Retreat
This newly completed, modern residence now listed in Mar Vista has all of the makings of a true oasis. Think a quarter-plus acre lot replete with a pool and spa, fire-pit, outdoor kitchen, dining and barbecue area, mature trees, and plenty of grassy areas with room for a playground or even a private yoga setting. Situated on a secluded cul-de-sac atop a hill, the home also offers unparalleled views of Downtown L.A. and the Santa Monica mountains, along with convenient access to the beach and nearby shops.
“This elegant and sophisticated estate is perfect for those seeking ultimate privacy and retreat,” says listing agent Kerry Ann Sullivan. An open floor plan offers seamless indoor-outdoor environs showcasing a dramatic formal entry and staircase, wall-to-wall windows, skylights, iPad-controlled sound and security systems, and Tesla Solar. Among the standout features: a wine cellar and a chef’s-style kitchen equipped with high-end appliances.
