With stunning views of the hazy blue ocean and lush tropical landscaping, the hilltop estate located at 200 Toyopa Drive embodies the best of living in Pacific Palisades, Calif. A regal wrought iron gate leads the way to the ivy-draped stone manor, which overlooks a motor court and fountain. With the ocean as its backdrop, the yard features a pool, a spa, picnic table, fountains, gardens, and fire pits—making al fresco entertainment a breeze.
Inside, a grand entry hall leads into a living room bedecked with French doors and vaulted ceilings. Showcasing built-in white bookshelves, a sizable center island, and exposed wood beams, the kitchen is ready to accommodate budding chefs. The dining room (which was hand-painted with soothing shades of blue and white) features dark hardwood floors, elegant French doors, and an old-fashioned chandelier. Seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and three half baths virtually guarantee that guests will feel right at home. A gym, a sauna, a library, and an office round out the home’s amenities. The home is currently listed for $20 million. (Inquiries: Madison Hildebrand, 310.818.5788, Gina Kirkpatrick, 310.651.2159; thepartnerstrust.com)
