Designed by famous architect Elmer Grey, the same mastermind who designed the Pasadena Playhouse, Huntington Library, Beverly Hills Hotel, Bel Air Bay Club and other famous buildings, this beautifully renovated English cottage in Santa Monica is part of the lush Kathryn Grayson Estate.
The residence can be found on the best street in Santa Monica, overlooking the Riviera Country club. It is an 11,000-square-foor home on which an impressive number of top designers left their print. While they kept some of the original charm of the 1926 house, they also added many contemporary features that were indispensible for a luxe modern lifestyle.
Thus one can see rounded archways, old English Oak paneling, hand-crafted leaded windows, high-pitched beams, and minstrel’s gallery next to state-of-the-art home automation and audio-visual systems, large spaces flooded by natural light, spacious entertaining kitchen, and a home theater. For a truly lavish lifestyle, the home also has a flush-edge infinity pool, beautiful lawns, and a detached guesthouse with two bedrooms.
This house is ideal for music lovers and artists, because it features a top-notch home recording studio developed in collaboration with a number of high-end audio partners. Furthermore, other rooms also feature microphone panels, fiber optics and digital lines which ensure the possibility of recording in various environments: in the library, master bedroom, and the great room. With a total of 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, the house is now for sale at $22 million.
