Time to look under the couch cushions for spare change if you want to buy this property. Sitting on Santa Monica Beach is this four-bedroom, nine-bath "European Villa" with a "dramatic two story courtyard entry flooded with sunlight from the retractable roof lead[ing] to an impressive living room and dining room and a professional screening room." While the grounds and view are impressive, we're a little surprised a place on the water has such dark interiors. Why so gloomy? Cost to live next to shirtless rollerbladers (maybe that explains the premium?): $16 million.
