Covered in shingles, this Traditional-style home in the posh neighborhood north of the upscale shops and restaurants on Montana Avenue was designed by Steve Giannetti, the architect behind a Malibu mansion purchased by Lady Gaga in 2014.
Giannetti and his wife, interior designer Brooke Giannetti, are known for using “authentic materials, antiques, and organic elements,” and that holds true in the Santa Monica home. The understated interiors mix materials and textures, from pine floors to a metallic kitchen ceiling.
Per the listing, the lot features a 100-year-old pine tree, which can be seen from the master bedroom. The romantic backyard, dripping with succulents, holds a stone fireplace and a pool.
Built in 2002, the five-bedroom home last sold in 2012 for $3.95 million. It returned to the market this month asking $5.25 million.
