This Balinese-style House In Santa Monica Sells For $9.5M
Just two blocks from the beach, this breathtaking Balinese-style house in California finds a buyer in less than a week for US$9.5 million.
A magnificent Balinese-style house in Santa Monica, California has gone into escrow for US$9.5 million just four days after being listed on the market.
Spanning 4,700 square feet of living space with breathtaking exteriors, the house has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Throughout the house, stunning features include waterfalls, lush gardens, split-faced limestone walls, solid teak and organic materials. Outdoors, surrounded by greenery, there is a koi pond, a limestone spa and a two-car garage.
Built in 2009 by LEED-certified builder Sorensen Architects, the home embodies the combination of beauty, sustainability and innovative design. Offering an immaculate, private oasis in the heart of Santa Monica Canyon, this Balinese architectural treasure has an antique Monastery gate and a fireplace adorned with Indonesian coral accents.
The house was listed by Shelton Wilder of Sotheby’s International Realty. Wilder, the top luxury real estate agent in the Los Angeles area and CEO of the Shelton Wilder Group, stated that buyers are searching for something extremely special and unique within the high-end market.
“The moment you walk in the vintage monastery gate, you are transported to an ambrosial, luxury hotel in Bali,” said Wilder. She added that everything about the house is in the highest finishes with many organic touches. The home also perfectly features and unifies all the elements — earth, air, fire and water.
The grand and resort-like space also has terrazzo floors, Basalt tile bathrooms, laser-cut steel doors and windows, a custom Italian glass elevator and a retractable skylight. With its sophistication and eco-conscious details, this property is touted as one of the most impressive and captivating homes in Los Angeles.
