There’s a new champion in Sunset Park, the Santa Monica neighborhood tucked between Lincoln Boulevard and the Santa Monica Airport. A brand-new architectural home just traded hands for $5.387 million, setting a price record in the community.
That’s over $1 million more than the previous record, which was set just last year when a modern-style spot sold for $4.325 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
The jagged, striking structure stands out from its neighbors, appearing as a series of boxes stacked on top of each other with massive walls of glass that hover over the street. The blocky, geometric style continues inside, as floating staircases navigate a split-level floor plan punctuated by skylights.
Concrete covers the living spaces, lining the walls and heated floors set under dramatic wood ceilings. On the main level, there’s a voluminous dining room, step-down living room with a fireplace and chef’s kitchen with a custom island.
Upstairs, the primary suite features a sitting room, private terrace and steam shower. The bottom level adds a wine cellar and movie theater. In total, there are four bedrooms and six bathrooms in 5,400 square feet.
Colorful landscaping touches up the front of the property, and out back, a patio ascends to a fountain-fed swimming pool and spa.
