Welcome to 327 22nd Street, a private sanctuary in the esteemed “North of Montana” neighborhood in Santa Monica. Behind hedges and a rustic wooden gate, you’ll find this meticulously maintained Mediterranean home. Its completely enclosed setting creates a retreat for family and friends with five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms in 4,600 square feet. As you enter the home through a handcrafted front door, you arrive into a grand foyer with vaulted ceilings, sweeping curved staircase and decorative iron railings. The office has bay windows allowing serene views of the foliage. The formal living room has a carved wood fireplace and showcases striking mahogany French doors. An open and well laid out floor plan displays a gourmet kitchen, family room and breakfast nook as the hub and gathering place for family activities. The formal dining room’s focal point is the dramatic dome inset ceiling. Pristine grounds feature a winding imported natural stone path, lush grass, stacked stone planters and potted fruit trees. A wall of French doors overlook the rear yard with a grassy knoll, an attractive glass-tiled pool with swim jets, an adjacent spa, a stacked stone water feature and a Wolf built-in BBQ. This beautiful home displays immense attention to detail in its intricate custom woodwork, decorative tile, crown molding and artistic finishes.
