The transformation begins when entering the garden gate, catching a glimpse of the house nestled into the manicured English gardens. This soulful, enchanting, traditional beachside house combines the modern amenities while complementing the charm and character of another era with ease. The main floor offers an open great living room with vaulted ceiling, the fireplace, original hardwood floors, plaster walls and distinctive window details allowing the warm speckled canyon sunlight to playfully wash the interior organic surfaces. The comfortable cook's kitchen opens to a family room/seating area facing the canyon views plus a formal elegant dining room on the opposite side open to the gardens. Two private bedrooms and two bathrooms are also on the main level. The upper attic space has been magically transformed into a private master suite embracing the ocean and canyon breezes and views. The lower level offers a guest suite with its own entrance, a two car garage, game room and access to the back gardens and its mature orange trees. Centrally located on the rim of the Santa Monica Canyon the house is on one of the most coveted streets in close proximity to the beach and the budding reinvented commercial area of the canyon. The house exudes creativity, honoring the past while feeling current.
