Of course, living a resort lifestyle year-round isn’t cheap. Located just a few blocks from the beach, this South Pacific–inspired residence recently landed on the market for $9.5 million. Undaunted by the 10-digit price tag, a buyer stepped forward and the four-bedroom home is now pending sale.
This residence started out as a tiny cottage in 1926. It last changed hands in 2015 for $4,050,000 and has been completely reimagined.
You’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to Bali (minus the jet lag) the minute you walk through the antique monastery gate and lush landscaping to enter the 6,499-square-foot home.
You’ll pass the tropical gardens, Balinese carvings, and elevated waterfall spa before you reach a huge glass door that pivots to the interior.
Inside, you’ll find walls made of teak and split-faced limestone. Ornate, laser-cut screens pivot and slide to create separate spaces and to allow access to the outdoors.
Each of the three primary suites comes with a private deck with a fire pit and a luxe bath with a stone tub and basins.
There are two kitchens. The one outdoors is on the rooftop deck, which can be accessed by an Italian glass elevator.
That deck also features a heated seating area and bar.
This Balinese beauty is within walking distance to the beach, as well as some fun eateries and bars in Santa Monica Canyon.
