Pristine, one owner, custom-built, split-level Mid-century modern on an expansive, all usable 23,700+ square foot lot (per assessor) with wide open, unobstructed views over the old Polo Fields to Brentwood Hills and the Santa Monica mountains beyond. Recalling memories of a bygone era and situated on the desirable "Rim" side of beautiful, tree-lined La Mesa Drive, Santa Monica's most desirable street, this sun-filled home features all the signature elements of the period: large, open spaces, floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outdoors in, polished stone floors and wood paneled walls. Public spaces include well-proportioned formal living room and family room/dining area, each with stone wood burning fireplaces and original St. Charles eat-in kitchen. There are 5 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths plus a lower level guest apartment that opens to the garden and includes a living room with fireplace, second kitchen and bedroom with bath. Other features include an oversized three car garage with adjacent storage and work rooms. Available for the very first time, this lovingly maintained home, in close proximity to the Brentwood Country Mart and the beach, provides a rare opportunity to restore or expand a classic piece of architecture or to build a magnificent estate with an expansive yard, in a fantastic Westside location.
