Description

Perched atop the Riviera with jaw dropping ocean views, this premier 1930's home celebrates timeless Spanish colonial architecture paired with European elegance. Recently featured in the New York Times, 'Cresta De La Barranca,' a notable Winsor Soule triumph, sits on 1.7 acres, enjoys 5 beds and 4.5 baths, and offers a separate garage and carriage structure. Privately tucked off the street, many original period details have been lovingly preserved, from the old stone walls to vintage hand-painted tiles, this undeniably special property is imbued with romance and history. Immediately upon entry, the impressive great room, accented with a grand fireplace and Cathedral ceilings, draws your eye to the staggering views. The formal dining room is complete with a fireplace and rich beamed ceilings, inspiring dinner parties and intimate nights alike. The main level primary suite enjoys sweeping ocean views, a Juliet balcony, and cedar-lined closets. In addition to one ensuite bedroom, the third bedroom acts as a private space with a loft, view balcony, bath, and its own private entrance. Retreat to the lower level, where you'll find the handsome wood-paneled library/game room, equipped with a fireplace, wet bar, safe, and original light fixtures. As if stepping into a Slim Aarons photograph, French doors open to the expansive patio, perfected with a Roman pool and head-on views. Two guest bedrooms and a bath are easily accessed right off the pool terrace. Reminiscent of the Italian countryside, the terraced gardens are dotted with numerous fruit trees, old oaks, specimen plantings, large succulents, meandering pathways, and patios perfect for dining al fresco. Along with a detached two-car garage, a separate one-car garage with bonus room and a full bath offers potential for a future studio space. This special architectural property is destined to be enjoyed by an expert eye searching for something truly significant.
