Set just off the Santa Monica Bluffs with a closeup, unobstructed Pacific view, 401 Ocean is a new home wrapped in a 1910 architectural treasure.
Outside, every Colonial Revival and Craftsman detail of the Henry Wise/Charles Morris House, from Tuscan-style entryway columns to redwood shingles, has been intricately preserved and restored. Inside, nearly 3,000 square feet of bright, warmly inviting new interiors unfold, every inch constructed to the highest standards of luxury.
Two levels of open living space, white oak flooring and spacious bedroom suites are dazzled by ocean views at every turn, starting with the panoramic bay window in the living room.
The airy kitchen features custom Axis Italian cabinetry, distinctive solid stone countertops and high-end appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele. Intricate stone and tile work surrounds upscale fixtures by Brizo, Rohl, Newport Brass, and Toto.
Three en suite bedrooms are highlighted by an upper level primary suite that opens to a stunning balcony with a sweeping ocean view. In the bath, a fireplace and soaking tub define a superbly indulgent retreat.
There are over 2,000 square feet of private outdoor space, including a sweeping lower level patio and the spacious second story deck. A two-car garage completes the amenities. Moments from the beach, promenade, and pier, this is truly the epitome of upscale oceanfront living and Southern California history.
401 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica is listed at $7,750,000 by Cindy Ambuehl and Don Heller.
