Santa Monica Modern


Hidden between the boardwalks and boulevards, escape awaits at this modern beachside retreat.

Perfectly situated in the heart of the city, you are mere steps away from neighboring shops and restaurants. And a short walk of just a few blocks leads to the expansive Pacific coastline and its sandy beaches.

“The exteriors are clad in western red cedar and zinc to offer a sense of durability and longevity, and to help ground the house on the site.”
Clark Sather, Senior Associate, Walker Warner

The house is a casual, inviting space to entertain family and friends, whether sharing a meal together or gathering around the outdoor fire pit. It also functions perfectly well for one, serving as a quiet retreat.

The interiors are minimal, boasting clean lines and a subdued materials palette of white oak and limestone. This serves as the perfect backdrop for a thoughtfully curated collection of artwork.

The courtyard, with its lush garden and seating areas, is an ideal space for outdoor entertaining. Hidden by a canopy of trees, it remains perfectly concealed from neighbors and passersby.

“We created an urban forest, planting a dozen specimen trees for shade, privacy, and seasonal color to create nuanced spaces throughout the landscape.”
Michael Fiore, Principal, Fiore Landscape Design

A private oasis hidden within a bustling neighborhood, it’s a place that offers respite and repose, under the shelter of eucalyptus trees and the warm glow of the setting sun.
