Take A Look Inside A Coveted Santa Monica Canyon Compound, $6.925MAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
Considered one of the most coveted neighborhoods in Santa Monica, The Canyon is home to an impressive array of to-die-for residences, but few are as notable as 612 E. Channel Road.
Overlooking the surrounding hillsides and located just a short walk from the ocean, the private gated property features a modern four-bedroom main residence and a separate guesthouse. Designed in a contemporary, open concept style, the living, dining, and kitchen areas of the main residence connect seamlessly on the upper level.
In addition to vaulted ceilings and walnut wood floors, 612 E. Channel Road features floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors that let in a generous supply of natural sunlight and offer easy access to the outdoor living spaces, which include a terrace spanning the front of the home and a pool terrace featuring an al fresco dining area, fire pit, grass yard, and more.
The home’s gourmet kitchen blends contemporary style with functional design, including highlights such as Schonbek crystal fixtures and Porcelanosa quartz stone counters. Miele appliances are built directly into the wall and handleless cabinetry surround the spacious center island featuring countertop seating, a flush deep main sink, and an induction cooktop with retractable ventilation.
The residence’s master bedroom suite is also located on the upper floor, with sliding glass doors leading out to the front canyon-view terrace. The ultra-private space is topped off with a spa-style bath featuring marble floors and walls, crystalline lighting fixtures, double shower, and roomy tub.
The home’s lower level is accessible via an interior staircase or an exterior staircase from the pool terrace, and features three additional bedrooms, two full baths, a powder room, den, and home theater equipped with surround sound. In addition to 20 speakers installed throughout, and many rooms wired for surround sound, the entire home features smart technology that allows the lighting, window shades, security cameras, and music to be controlled from an iPad.
The accompanying guest house, with its own separate entry, can be used for long-term guests, leasing, or vacation rental. The one-bedroom home features a full kitchen with granite countertops and high-end appliances, plus a living room overlooking the canyon.
