One of the most beautiful remodeled homes in the Malaga Cove area with sweeping and unobstructed views- from queen’s necklace, white water, city lights, and LA basin all the way to the mountains. It has an open floor plan, mostly one level, an updated kitchen, and 4 fully remodeled baths -- this stunning home is move-in ready! Private courtyard entry with fountain and huge stone planters. Gallery hallway with leaded French doors open to the side patio with turf grass area. Spacious living area with an open beam ceiling, a wood-burning fireplace, and window seat -- right next to the gourmet kitchen with Viking range, chiseled travertine, chestnut cabinetry, center island, and farmer’s sink; nook with skylights, a charming fireplace, and pantry. Formal dining and den open to the glass-paneled balcony with such a romantic and unforgettable view. Fabulous master suite with fireplace, walk-in closet with dressing area, nicely arranged bath with tub, separate shower, and view balcony with direct access to the pool/spa area with lush landscape, fruit trees, waterfall, and BBQ area. Two more bedrooms, two baths, and laundry on this level as well. The lower level is the guest bedroom quarter with a bathroom, a wet bar, and French doors open to the resort-like backyard, it borders the city parkland below. The garage is huge, could accommodate 3, if one of them is a smaller sports car. Lower Malaga Cove offers close proximity to the beautiful walking trails, the Ranch Market, Malaga Bank, the post office, and the Malaga Cove Library. Stroll the nearby Hollywood Riviera with a variety of charming restaurants and boutiques. And best of all, there’s a great sense of community on Via Del Monte: the neighbors look out for each other and they are courteous of noise and privacy. 581 Via Del Monte is on a sweet spot on the hill: it’s close enough to walk or ride bikes to the beach, less than 10 minutes to the Hollywood Riviera, and up on the hill far enough away from the city that it feels calm and tranquil. It’s really the “best of both worlds!" Please see the supplement for the list of improvements.
