Santa Monica Luxury Homes – what’s your Style? By Fiora Aston


I represent many local and international clients buying and selling homes in exclusive neighborhoods of Santa Monica. As we’re working together, I learn so much about how they live and want to use their home. Their aesthetic sense, what their work, relaxation, alone time and entertaining looks and FEELS like. I am able to help them find their perfect home. And my clients become my friends!

No matter the type of luxury living they envision, we’re always to find the home, street and neighborhood that’s just right for them…and right near the beach and all the Westside’s best amenities.

Here are three examples of the incredible range of luxury homes in our beautiful neighborhood.

Historic Estate Property

435 Georgina Ave. Once in a generation, an historic Santa Monica estate property changes families. This 1913 classic Craftsman sits quietly on one of Santa Monica’s most prestigious streets, two blocks from Palisades Park and the Pacific Ocean. Perfectly proportioned rooms and original details like boxed ceilings, crown moldings, crystal doorknobs and period chandeliers mark a time of grand living we just cannot design and build today. The extraordinary 22,192 sqft lot has endless possibilities to expand the home, add a generous home in the backyard, and create wonderful spaces for entertaining. This mansion is awaiting a new owner who has the vision to preserve the historical character and modernize it to their modern lifestyle. Please call me at (310) 480-3585 for your private tour.

Six Floors of Stunning Modern Live-Work Space

1010 Broadway. In contrast, check out this ultra-modern. I recently sold this modern “skyscraper,” painstakingly built on a quiet commercial/residential address a short bike ride to the beach. A massive pivoting front door welcomes you into this luxurious home. 2 enclosed bedrooms, 2 floating lofts, 2.5 baths and 2 outdoor terraces are spread across six floors – all connected by an elevator & stunning stairwell. Plus ladders for urban athletes to climb the alternate route! Floor to ceiling windows retract to bring in the ocean breezes. Miele appliances in the Buldhaup kitchen. Graff fixtures and Toto toilets in the bathrooms. CAT6 fiber-optic broadband. First floor bedroom suite with kitchenette opens to a private, beautifully landscaped terrace. Two-level roof-top terrace has 360 views to the beach, mountains, DTLA and LAX. This unique, open floorplan feels both intimate and as if the home and work spaces stretch forever

Grand Living in New Construction near San Vicente

235 19th Street. The new owners of this home live luxuriously and entertain in grand style in their 8,299 sqft custom built home North of Montana. Their 20ft entrance hall and 3 story stairwell welcome guests into a kitchen/family room built for entertaining, complete with Wolf range, Miele double refrigerators & freezers, Avanti wine cooler, 3 dishwashers. The great room flows out to the lush backyard, with lap-pool and bbq patio. The upstairs Master Suite opens to a large balcony, and includes His & Hers walk-in closets, spectacular shower and soaking tub. Plus five more en-suite bedrooms. The unexpected highlight of this home is its 3,000 sqft basement. “The most luxurious basement in Santa Monica” showcases a glass-enclosed wine cellar and lounge, work-out/dance studio with wall of mirrors and ballet barre, and 20 person in-home movie theatre. I provided my client the popcorn and candy J. So, of course a home of this quality includes a quiet 5 person elevator. European hardwood floors, opulent marble, architectural lighting and thoughtfully placed mini-bars, sitting areas and built-in desks with views outside create special environments throughout this grand home. This property graciously demonstrates that new construction can be personal, unique and beautiful when it’s the result of thoughtful design, one-of-a-kind materials and finishes and meticulous construction by a boutique developer.

I love my job. I meet the most interesting people who have become my lifelong friends. And I get to introduce them to the RIGHT home that suits the luxury lifestyle they seek.
