408 Sycamore Road

Dripping in rosemary and swimming in its spicy scent, 408 Sycamore Road, an unassuming bungalow set behind plentiful leafy green boughs in the steep, windy streets of Santa Monica’s Rustic Canyon, is a tactile wonderland—different leaves, stones, finishes, and surfaces grace the both the interior and exterior of the home. A mixture of pebble, river rock, and brick steps enable you to ascend the short distance the extends between the sidewalk and the front door; while the front yard is quite narrow, its mastery of elements engaging in vertical, voluminous, and textural exchange along its width is quite enchanting, both welcoming and striking.

The interior of the home, which contains many additions and alterations to the original structure commissioned by Frank E. Bundy, is now a multidimensional space that includes sizeable quantities of both wood paneling and windows, in equal measure. The effect this combination achieves cultivates an open nonchalance in all the spaces of the home—it welcomes you to snuggle up close, even if you are a bit sandy from the beach.

The bedrooms continue the light, bright, craftsman appeal throughout.

Diane Keaton’s house from her 1999 article in Architectural Digest is a continuous fount of inspiration; here, the simple, substantial lines, curated colors, and amazing outdoor dining space are all worthy or immense praise, and should be copied until the last drop of style can be wrung from it. I would apply all of the tricks and techniques applied in this home, located in Beverly Hills, to 408 Sycamore Road in Santa Monica.

The dreamy intimate backyard is the perfect size space it facilitate numerous memorable events.

408 Sycamore Road is currently listed for $2,669,000 by Violetta Hargitay of Sotheby’s International Realty. The 1,407 square foot home is comprised of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is located on a 4,640 square foot lot.
