House of the Day: A Perfect California Craftsman

A classic, Santa Monica tree-flanked home with quick access to the beach -- what more could you want? This flawless, Craftsman-style home is California beach living at its very finest. For $7.4 million, you can enjoy a 4,300 square feet interior designed with a wide-open floor plan that allows natural light to fill nearly every corner. From the spacious living room, two sets of French doors invite you to the expansive porch outside. The home is hedged and gated for privacy, so you can enjoy its large yard and pool in peace.

The large kitchen is equipped with modern appliances, including a stovetop with eight burners, and has plenty of counter space with a breakfast bar.

Upstairs, you'll find a master suite with a private balcony and bathroom. And each of the other three bedrooms has its own bathroom too! Downstairs also features a library den, a powder room, and an office/gym space with a private bath.

And there's nothing like leaving your quiet abode and only having to travel a few blocks to the trendy shops and restaurants on Montana Avenue.

Aileen Comora and Paul Lester of The Agency have the listing.
