Originally built in 1928 and meticulously reconstructed in 1996, the historic El Tovar By The Sea seamlessly blends three distinct architectural periods: Classical Revival, Streamline Moderne, and Modified Classical Mediterranean. Nestled on the upper central end of Ocean Avenue, this full-service luxury building remains one of the most coveted addresses, and its 22 residences are among the most exclusive. Sitting above them all is the coveted jewel of the property - Penthouse South. Upon entering the exquisitely appointed foyer, the elevator will take you directly to a silk wallpaper-lined vestibule where your front door awaits. Step inside to be greeted by breathtaking ocean vistas and a sun-drenched living room bathed in southern light. French doors open onto a sweeping wrap-around balcony to take in the ocean air and watch the palm trees sway in serene privacy.The high ceilings and designer details complement this striking space that is as suitable for entertaining as it is for a quiet night at home by the wood burning fire. The formal dining room boasts Zuber hand-painted wallpaper, gold leaf ceiling, and views of the coast through the kumquat trees on the patio. The spacious kitchen with a generous island features top-of-the-line appliances, a separate butlers pantry providing ample storage, and a large adjacent laundry room. An elegant powder room with an antique vanity completes the first floor. Venture upstairs to discover the secluded sleeping quarters. The en-suite guest room features stunning views of the snow-capped mountains and two large closets. Down the hall, the spectacular primary suite beckons - here, you will feel transported as you look out from Palos Verdes to Point Dume and hear the gentle roar of waves as the sound cascades from the ocean. Step out onto the large balcony with separate sitting areas for sunny afternoon reading. Drift back inside and envision yourself immersed in another world as you enjoy the bedroom's fireplace before turning in for the night. The spa-like primary bath features Venetian plaster walls, soaking tub, and steam shower. A separate office space with views and balcony provides the ideal setting for your virtual work or a private space for study. Solid oak hardwood floors throughout underscore the grandeur of every detail. The home includes private 3 plus car garage with custom built-in storage cabinets. The building's state-of-the-art fitness center, pool, spa, and lush landscaping rival those of 5 star hotels. Situated along the bluffs of Palisades Park and just a short stroll from shops and restaurants - this is California living at it's finest and steeped in the history of iconic Ocean Avenue. When you are here, you are truly home
