2523 3RD ST, SANTA MONICA, CA 90405

$4,750,000
In 1936, cosmetics icon and entrepreneur Merle Norman commissioned architect Ellis Martin to build her this striking, Mediterranean Revival masterpiece. This registered Landmark and Mills act property has been meticulously conserved by its current owner for over 35 years. Boasting architectural details at every turn, many original Art Deco elements remain preserved. Perched high off the street, this private compound features 4 bedrooms and 5 baths on 4,722Sf. Pass through the porte cochre, enter a romantic courtyard and ascend the iconic sweeping staircase to the massive entertainer's living room spanning the front of the house. A study / library with period windows nestled among the privacy of Hollywood Juniper trees that Merle planted herself are reminiscent of a bygone era. The oversized dining room with long patio flanked with French doors overlook the courtyard, a perfect place to host a soiree of any size. A separate, inviting breakfast nook just off the kitchen for everyday meals. The primary suite is more like a presidential suite, expanding the entire top floor. Highlights include a large, enclosed porch with ocean views and cool ocean breeze, dual bathrooms with original Art Deco tile and a circular dressing room with built-in makeup vanity designed specifically for and by the cosmetic magnate herself. A large 1 bedroom 1 bath guest suite with a kitchen and living room complete this special property. Just one block to shops and three to the ocean, this is a rare opportunity to own one of Santa Monica's truly iconic residences.
