Back in May of this year I wrote about a newly built, Santa Monica, North of Montana, single family home that was to have been sold for $30 million. It has finally been listed for sale for a whopping $35,000,000. Located at 1525 San Vicente, brand new, mega mansion with an indoor basketball court, and 200’ ft. of frontage above the 4th green of Riviera Country Club Golf Course, on a lot that is over 1.3 acres. This is by far the most exciting real estate listing of all time for Santa Monica. There is an interesting history behind this property – call me for details.
When you consider the prices that people have paid in Brentwood, Bel Air, Holmby and Beverly Hills, $35 million does not seem too much for such a significant property. And with the controversial “House of Rock” (2009 La Mesa Drive) property on the market for $22 million, Santa Monica real estate is about to become a much more credible neighborhood for the super rich, realizing that the Santa Monica lifestyle is far superior to any east of the 405 freeway.
Here is your real estate news:
