Rare Mansion Available in North of Montana
A spacious luxury home like no other has gone on the market in this most prestigious Santa Monica, Calif., neighborhood.
If money were no object, where would you live? It’s a question Angelenos ask each other often, and while communities like Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Bel Air, Malibu, Pacific Palisades, the Hollywood Hills and Manhattan Beach come up frequently, there is one spot that everyone immediately concedes is pretty near perfect. That would be North of Montana in Santa Monica.
Located within walking distance of the beach, the Third Street Promenade, Palisades Park, trendy shops and restaurants of Montana, and in one of the best public school districts in the nation, this chic Santa Monica neighborhood has but a few drawbacks. Granted, access is sometimes difficult because of heavy traffic on east/west thoroughfares, and houses are not often available because of the desirability of the neighborhood. Oh, and when they are, they are what you might call “pricey.”
But those who can afford this area will immediately take note of a particular house that recently came on the market on the refined street of Georgina, just south of stately San Vicente, and just a block and a half from Ocean Avenue. If the $9.9 million listing price sounds a bit steep, it’s reported that it can be leased for $29,000 per month.
The architectural house with the multilevel rotunda is unique among the other, mostly Mediterranean, traditional and Prairie-style mansions in the area. The house was built in 2009, but recently a redo was completed by designer/architect Hamid Omrani. All furniture and fixtures, selected to complement the vivid interior, are available to the new residents.

Some of the more arresting features include elaborate crystal and blown-glass chandeliers, a Euro-designed kitchen, subterranean movie theater, a nightclub/party room that can accommodate up to 100 people, walls of glass, a spacious pool, a rooftop viewing deck with spa, and an elevator to vertically connect them all. There’s also a grand spiral staircase in the glass rotunda if you feel like walking.
Even if the current decor and use of space is not to a particular buyer’s liking, there’s simply no beating the location. If someone has nearly $10 million to spend on a home, there’s a good chance there’s enough space in their budget for redecorating.
