Over hill and dale
For all the warm ocean breezes, Pergola House feels worlds away in sunny Santa Monica. This home takes inspiration from the picturesque English Countryside, from the roof’s gables to the gorgeous florals and winsome antiques inside. And set on a sleepy street, don't forget how close you are to the Santa Monica bluffs and beach. Take a turn along Montana Avenue for a collection of boutiques and inviting patio cafés, or stay at home and prepare something more heartening at the chunky, wooden-topped kitchen counters – just beyond, you’ll find plenty of seating, indoors and out, at the charming dining tables.
Lords and ladies
Your hosts are a family of five and their Jack Russell Terrier, Pal. Their work in real estate and the film business keeps them busy, but in their downtime they enjoy biking, shopping at farmers’ markets, and hiking through the countryside.
In the sitting room you’ll find pretty throw pillows, a grand piano, and even a Renaissance statue. And while in the chef's kitchen stacks of antique dishes and silver candlesticks are a vintage touch, the chrome appliances are every bit as modern as you might like.
But don’t wile away too many hours indoors – out on the patio is a full outdoor kitchen, complete with a barbecue and sink, as well as a heated pool and sociable fire pit. There's plenty of seating too, and after an evening of entertaining you’ve five dreamy bedrooms should guests wish to make a night of it.
