Frank Langen • 540 Adelaide Drive , Santa Monica CA, 90402
Even today Adelaide exudes the flair and understated elegance from the early days in part due to the owners and preservationists who value its history and the quintessential nature that surrounds it. Placed on a gracious almost half acre of flat land, embraced by ocean breezes, canyon and ocean vistas, this International style house sits proudly among the many remaining vintage and architectural homes along the southwest rim of the Santa Monica Canyon. The gracious horseshoe driveway provides easy access and privacy for the residents to enter. The main story includes the grand living room and bar, an enclosed garden room connecting the living room to the exterior grounds, the modern kitchen and breakfast area also accessing the outdoors and a formal dining room plus an office/study or bedroom. The upper level offers an additional four bedrooms and three bathrooms, including the grand main bedroom which opens to opposite balconies facing the Pacific Ocean and the sprawling gardens and pool area. The house provides an opportunity to modernize and potentially add on to in a myriad of ways. The current combination of the stately grounds, timeless style, the proper garage and attached pool house embodies elegance and at the same time opportunity. The street has and continues to attract architects, artists, writers musicians and successful Hollywood personalities.
