This $36.5 Million California Beach House Has Impressive Amenities – Robb Report
This is the spirit of the school.
A new 36.5 million beachfront property in Carpinteria, Calif., aims to give a whole new meaning to college decor, with wood floors made from the former basketball court of the UCLA.
The owners were both UCLA alumni and donors, and the school gave them part of the yard when renovating the gymnasium, their son Told The Wall Street Journal. “There were 10 national championships won on the floor,” he said.
The rest of the property is not left out either. Built in the early 2000s, the over 9,000 square foot home features six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. A few of the bedrooms have private entrances and can be separated from the rest of the house, providing residents with unparalleled individual privacy. In the master suite, which takes up the full width of the second floor, you’ll find a living room, workout room, fireplace, double closets, and an incredible bathroom with custom tile.
Beyond the modern design staples (an open living room, chef’s kitchen), the property offers a few extra perks. Oenophiles will appreciate that the air-conditioned wine cellar can hold more than 1,000 bottles. For bookworms, there’s a dedicated library with 17-foot ceilings, two sliding ladders, and a reading loft. The indoor and outdoor gardens, meanwhile, offer lush vegetation throughout the property. As for those UCLA floors, you’ll, fittingly, find them in the house’s dedicated playroom.
Of course, it’s also a beach house, so we’d be remiss not to mention the 66 feet of ocean frontage and direct beach access. The Pacific can be seen from many places in the house, but nothing beats the view from the oceanfront living room or the oceanfront hot tub.
“The property is absolutely spectacular and the best buy on Padaro Lane,” said Jason Streatfeild of Douglas Elliman, the listing agent. Robb Report.
The home, which is asking for $36.5 million, is available for the first time in 42 years, making this a rare opportunity for potential buyers. Check out more images of the property below.
