• Designed by Melinda Gray, AIA • 486 East Channel Road , Santa Monica CA, 90402
Tucked into a cul-de-sac within the coveted Santa Monica Canyon, surrounded by the famed canyon stairways and running water channels, this Melinda Gray, AIA architectural house built in 2016, is a modern oasis. With three stories of comfort, utility and playfulness, the design and use of space has been beautifully thought out: The main floor includes a well equipped chef's kitchen, open living room with 24ft ceilings, dining room off the kitchen and adjoining family room. The second level provides a spacious open, loft-like master bedroom, bath suite with oversized, freestanding Victoria and Albert bath and a steam/shower room. The open hallway with 1st floor overlook leads to a laundry room and two bright, evenly proportioned bedrooms with jack and jill bathroom. The third level, opens to a spa-like environment with a light drenched 4th bedroom and bathroom with a skylit shower. An extra 800 sq ft of outdoor space in the form of a private roof deck with hot tub, fire pit and built-in seating offer 360 degree magical treetop and canyon views. The house has been consciously conceived and constructed with the highest quality eco-friendly materials including blue jean insulation, underground water capture system, rain barrel, whole-house water filtration system and reverse osmosis drinking water system. Deliberate design details and appliances include full glass and lacquer Valcuccine Kitchen imported from Italy, Wolf, Miele and Sub Zero appliances, built in surround sound Sonos System, Oak floors, Silesstone countertops, limestone and marble tiles used throughout. Additionally, custom floor to ceiling Quantum architectural windows and doors in Doug Fir (including two sets of dramatic 20x20 ft mullion windows) and third floor skylights usher light into the entire house. There are two bonus offices/studios totaling 358 sq/ft of extra usable space (one is currently being used as an office and one as a yoga studio). This is the perfect family home or flexible live/work/play space in one of the most sought after private neighborhoods on the Westside of Los Angeles. In close proximity to the beach and to some of the best restaurants in Santa Monica, this special property has the ultimate California living vibe.
