An Overview of Maverick Carter’s New Home
Maverick Carter’s new home sits on a corner plot of 0.33-acres in an area of Santa Monica that is popular with celebrities. It is on a wide, tree-lined avenue and has undergone a significant renovation and expansion, thanks to the previous owner. The property, which was built in 1931, set him back $9.3 million. The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home measures 6,175-square-feet.
The Interior of the Santa Monica Property
On stepping into the property’s foyer, the tone is set for the rest of the house. The foyer is a double-height, bright space with multiple windows, and it is decorated in neutral tones. There is tiled flooring, and a wooden staircase with balustrades leads to a landing on the second floor. To one side of the entryway is a cozy living room with a fireplace and light wooden floors, although a beige rug covers most of the floor. There are windows on either side of the fireplace, along with a further window on an adjacent wall. On the other side of the entryway is the house’s formal dining room. Hanging above the eight-seater dining suite is a modern chandelier with a linear design. Windows on two sides overlook the gardens to the front and side of the property.
Leading from the dining rooms is a butler’s pantry and a newly-fitted kitchen that boasts top-of-the-range appliances, such as SubZero and Wolf. The kitchen has quartzite countertops, a double Belfast sink, and white cabinetry. To the center of the kitchen is a large island with an additional sink and dark wood cabinetry. There is recessed lighting across this room, along with a pendant light above the island. To the far end of the kitchen, there is an informal dining nook, which has a combination of in-built seating and stand-alone chairs. There are dual aspect windows, so it is a light and airy section of the kitchen. Across from the informal dining area is a casual sitting room, so there is space for people to sit and chat with the homeowner while they are preparing food in the kitchen.
There are three further rooms on the lower level, including a guest bedroom, a built-in breakfast banquette, and a family room. The family room is a vast space that offers the potential for use as a playroom or a games room. From the family room, there are French doors that lead out onto the courtyard. Upstairs, there are four of the five bedrooms, all of which have ensuite bathrooms. The largest of the bedrooms is the master suite, which is decorated with neutral walls and dark wood furniture. The master suite boasts two walk-in closets that offer a huge amount of space for storage, with a range of shelving, drawers, and hanging rails. In the master ensuite, there is a spa-style bathroom suite that includes a large, sunken soaking tub. The master bathroom has white cabinetry that offers plenty of storage space, and these are topped with quartzite countertops. There are sinks on either side of the bathroom.
The Santa Monica Mansion’s Exterior
There is a small hedge separating the garden from the sidewalk to the property’s front, and the house is fronted by a lawn and pathway leading to the front door. Another small hedge sits in front of a paved area directly in front of the house. The front of the property is a style traditional for the period in which it was built, and its exterior is painted white. In contrast, there are black shutters on the windows. There is a pillared balcony to the upper level, and the property has a gray shingled roof. Overall, the size of the plot is 0.33-acres, and most of the grounds are to the property’s rear. To the side of the property is a paved courtyard set between the house and the garage. The courtyard has an outdoor kitchen, wet bar, and dining area. The outdoor kitchen is better-equipped than the kitchens in most homes.
The outdoor dining suite is set up in a shaded area of the courtyard, so the homeowner can enjoy the outdoors without feeling overwhelmed by the brightness and heat of the midday sunshine. It is the perfect space for relaxed alfresco dining or for entertaining guests. The outdoor swimming pool takes up a large proportion of the grounds to the rear, and this is surrounded by paving. It is a fantastic space for relaxing around the pool, taking a dip to cool down, or for entertaining friends and family. The rear garden also has some lawned areas, and it is surrounded by mature trees that offer privacy. It is all set within a walled and gated enclosure, and there are security cameras around the entrances, says Dirt.com.
