12234 Everglade St, Los Angeles, CA 90066

Located on the crest of Mar Vista Hill, this 4BR (+office)/4BA 5,276 sq.ft. Mediterranean captures Pacific Ocean views from all west-facing rooms--1st and 2nd floor!-- and a 360-degree view of L.A.—including the Hollywood sign—from its rooftop deck. July 4th fireworks are coming! Being on the ground here is fantastic, too, with 14,162 sq.ft. of gated, hedged, private lawns to enjoy. The large flat pad offers room for a future additional structure and/or the addition of a backyard pool. Inside are double-height ceilings in the living area. The dining area’s focal point is one of the home’s 3 fireplaces (one in the foyer!). Informal dining is also here, just off the home’s galley kitchen, which opens to a covered outdoor living patio. Additional features of the ground floor: an office, a private guest suite, large screening room (with projector, drop-down screen, and TV), laundry room, and an additional bathroom complete with outdoor shower. Upstairs features a sitting room with fireplace, a family/play/rec room, 2 guest rooms which share access to a bathroom, and the master with its impressive spa bathroom.

The highly-desired Mar Vista location is perfect—ultimate privacy on a "flag lot" at the end of the cul-de-sac, with easy access to the 10, the 405, 3 miles to the beach, and a hop to LAX.
