The historic El Tovar by the Sea was originally constructed in1928 and continues to be one of the most commanding addresses in Santa Monica. This ultra-luxurious mid-rise combines three very distinct architectural periods; Classical Revival, Streamlined Moderne, and Modified Classical Mediterranean. Located on the quieter upper residential end of Ocean Avenue, this 22 unit building has remained among the most exclusive. Designed to make you feel as if you were living in a home, unit Two Garden has a grand entry that flows into an elegant living room with expansive bay windows and ocean views. The high ceilings and wood burning fireplace compliment this striking room that is as suitable for entertaining as it is for a quiet night at home. The adjacent formal dining room features french doors that open to a generous private covered patio with views of the pool and lush grounds. There are also wide southern facing balconies running along the side of the unit, planted with lush ficus for privacy. French doors provide access to these additional outdoor spaces from the bedrooms and kitchen, with room for a large grill and an ideal space for a chef's herb garden. The light-filled spacious eat-in kitchen features newly installed Viking double ovens, top-of-the-line Miele dishwasher and pantry providing ample kitchen storage. The gallery hallway leads to the separate sleeping quarters, boasting two bedrooms with shared bath, laundry room with sink, spacious storage closet, and additional linen closet. The spectacular primary suite has room for private office, includes sitting area and walk-in closet, and private balcony. The primary bathroom has large overhead rain shower, free standing tub, and separate WC and bidet. There are no common walls with any other unit, making this one feel even more like a home. The unit includes a two car private garage with built-in storage and closet. The building features a resort feel pool area and spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and high-speed elevators. Truly the best of all worlds; large scale rooms and floor plan with high ceilings and large windows built to the design specifications of the original architects, pool, spa and lush landscaping done in coordination with the leading 5 star hotels, and a building that is maintained impeccably and offers all of the modern amenities and security of top-tier luxury building. And right along the bluffs of Palisades Park with views of the iconic coastline, a short walk to shops and restaurants - this is California living at it's finest and steeped in the history of iconic Ocean Avenue.
