Cool Listings: A $24M Santa Monica Home Designed with Wellness in Mind

With a resort-level spa/wellness center, an oversized tropical rain shower, a meditation platform, and a striking backlit Himalayan salt wall, this luxury home stands out with its dedication to wellbeing and relaxation.

Wellness-centered design and a mindful approach to the way we envision our living spaces have skyrocketed in the past few years. In fact, the repertoire of wellness offerings in real estate projects is amping up, fueling a $100+ billion-and-growing field, experts say.

Aiming to calm a ragged mind, inspire creative thinking, and maintain physical wellbeing, the goals behind this growing trend are enmeshed in the very essence of home design: creating spaces that enable a better lifestyle.

And the makers of a newly-built property north of the famed Montana Avenue in Santa Monica took note of this — and incorporated a whole series of wellness amenities, to spectacular results.

The luxury residence pairs best-in-class design, privacy, and wellness-centered spaces and has recently been listed for sale with a $23,950,000 price tag. Cindy Ambuehl, Andy Ardila and David Costello of Compass hold the listing.

With a little over 12,000 square feet of living space, the Santa Monica home has 7 bedrooms, 9 full baths, 3 half baths, and an impressive array of amenities. But before we skip to its spa-like perks, it’s worth taking a moment to soak in the rest of this home’s flawless finishes.

With extra tall ceilings towering over the main floor living areas — which are all surrounded by dramatic walls of glass — the striking residence is flooded with natural light. It’s been fitted with motorized door that open up to the zero edge pool/jacuzzi and exterior terraces, blurring the lines between indoor/outdoor living.

The open-floor living area includes an Italian-designed kitchen with plenty of bar seating and a breakfast nook that allows residents to take in the lush greenery window views. All the natural materials used throughout the space, as well as the soothing color palette perfectly complement the house’s wellness angle.

Upstairs, a gracious primary suite takes advantage of the home’s lush views, while 3 more spacious en-suite bedrooms round out the floor.

But what truly makes this property stand out lies on the lower level — where we find a resort-level spa/wellness center.

The space goes beyond simply offering a handful of amenities meant for relaxation; it seems to have been appointed with everything the house’s residents might need to take care of both body and mind.

This includes a redwood cedar sauna with plunge pool, a meditation platform encompassed by water, an aromatherapy steam shower, an oversized tropical rain shower, and a massage therapy room. There’s also a striking illuminated Himalyayan salt wall that sets the tone for the space in a most unique way.

While we don’t want to overlook any of the cool features this home has been fitted with, the list of amenities is endless, so we’re just going to quickly go over a few more that caught our eye.

That includes the separate pool house (which comes with its own kitchenette), the zero edge pool, and the golf simulator which sits in the house’s generously sized multi-car garage/gallery.

The home also incorporates the newest smart home technology, Josh.Ai, an advanced voice-controlled home automation system that connects all the devices in the household. Which we imagine pairs perfectly with the property’s surround system.
