In plains view
An eleven-block migration from the beach brings you to this sub-Saharan oasis in the Pacific Palisades. Gorgeous earth tones and beautifully distressed wooden surfaces make this home as sleek and magnificent as the plains of the Serengeti. Prowling around this new terrain will sedate your animal instincts, as will the warm breeze drifting in through the open patio door. Outside, discover a garden oasis surrounded by fruit trees.
Leaders of the pride
This elegant ecosystem is home to a worldly and well-traveled couple. They roam the land in search of art, film, and adventure, and enjoy morning dips in their backyard lap pool for relaxation.
Survey your great plain: its open living room, kitchen and dining room are rustic, warmed by terracotta hues and wood panelling. Follow the trail to the tranquil den of the master bedroom where provisions include a pair of finely crafted wooden wardrobes. Bathe in the ensuite or slink out into the patio garden.
If the seasons are on your side, the garden will offer you oranges, figs, grapes and peaches to graze upon. An outdoor fireplace and the heated saltwater lap pool both offer warming sources after the rock has cooled at night. And there’s one extension of this exotic landscape, a quaint guesthouse on the edge of your territory.
Follow the call of the wild to the Pacific Ocean to surf or swim, or head for the hills to explore the trails of Rivas Canyon and a spectacular waterfall on the Temescal Canyon loop. Once you've sussed out your surroundings, you'll know it's only a three-minute walk to The Village for all basic needs. Stalk the area on Sundays for the local farmers' market or a treat at The Highlands shopping centre. And after night falls, you can find nocturnal life down in Santa Monica.
