Giada De Laurentiis’s Contemporary California Daydream
Relaxation is paramount in this sleek five-bedroom contemporary hideaway in the sought-after Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Via Bluffs. The home has had only one owner—chef, cookbook author, restaurateur, and television personality Giada De Laurentiis—and no expense has been spared in maintaining its pristine condition.
It offers a generous 6,300 square feet—in addition to alluring outdoor spaces—and its rarified location adjoins Potrero Canyon, affording views that stretch from the Santa Monica Mountains to Potrero Park and the ocean.
Uniquely, the home combines lavish style and finishes with an ambience that is comfortable, intimate, and welcoming.
In the chic open floorplan—which consists of fluid living, dining, and kitchen areas—the line between indoors and out virtually disappears, with interiors giving way seamlessly to a terrace and a long, refreshing infinity-edge saltwater pool and hot tub.
The kitchen encourages culinary pursuits or relaxed entertaining with streamlined professional-caliber appliances and a nearly 24-foot-long island.
Contributing to the inviting warmth is a two-sided marble-tiled fireplace at the center of the main living space.
Light—from plentiful windows, skylights, and retractable walls of glass—fills nearly every space.
The lower-level media and game room, which offers an uncommon view into the pool from below, expands the opportunities for amusement with its bar and glass-walled wine room.
Eye-catching architecturally designed stairs lead to the upper level, with its three peaceful guest bedrooms and a stylishly serene master suite, which enjoys a private balcony with a fireplace and a soaking tub with a view.
The home gym is a convenient amenity, and the auto enthusiast will appreciate the fully finished collector’s garage, which can accommodate up to four vehicles.
Sophisticated entertaining is a breeze in the backyard, which is secluded by privacy hedges. Accompanying the swimming pool is an invitingly lush lawn, a grilling area, and an enviable outdoor shower. Soothing sea breezes add to the sense of tranquility, and both Palisades Village and the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean are within walking distance.
