Sublime New House By Marmol Radziner in Santa Monica, $16.9MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 595 East Channel Drive, Santa Monica
What: A tour-de-force by Marmol Radziner, this newly built 8-bed, 10-bath home was designed and built by the renowned architectural firm acting as the contractor and developer. Bringing the concept of “design/build” to a new height, Marmol Radziner is one of the few firms globally that has the experience (and a deep bench of experienced staff) to execute a project at this level.
What We Love: This is well-considered design for family use, large-scale entertaining and privacy, with service areas (including a prep/catering kitchen) thoughtfully placed between the great room and the garage. For the potential buyer, all the decisions have been made without the potential drama and time it takes build on this scale.
Passing through a shaded entry on the side of the house, guests are greeted by a luminous double-height living room (at top) and dining area with stairs to the second level.
The master bedroom only occupies about 25% of the master suite– a sprawling collection of spaces that includes a library and two dressing rooms, plus a spa-worthy bath that extends the width of the house.
Paneled in full-height sheets of marble, the skylit space has two showers.
Below, two second floor spaces, blurring indoors and out.
