According to its listing, this "quintessential Santa Monica Canyon home" was built in 1926, though you'd never guess that from the listing photos. At some point in the past few decades—we're guessing mid-to-late-eighties—the two-story residence was remodeled with a vengeance, 'til its cups runneth over with flair and whimsy. Among the statement-making details are technicolored cabinets, mismatched sinks, "elaborate mosaic tile work," and glass blocks. In its favor, the three-bedroom, two-bath house also features walls of glass, ocean and treetop views, a spa, and pond. Sited on a 5,468-square-foot lot, it's asking $2.148 million.
