Home of the Week: Celebrity couple’s superbly enhanced Spanish beauty in Santa Monica

The 1930 Spanish Revival home of married actors Alexis Denisof and Alyson Hannigan has just hit the market, presented by Pacific Union LA. The restored, improved and expanded Santa Monica home reflects the couple’s commitment to preserving its Old World details while modernizing with the highest quality enhancements. 
Denisof (“The Avengers,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) and Hannigan (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) worked closely with nationally noted designer Kristen Panitch to renovate, update and expand the two-story Andalusian inspired residence in a prime above-Montana location at 428 25th Street. 
Through a gated front courtyard with lush, mature gardens and water features, a massive carved door opens to a dramatic formal entry and a living room with a massive leaded glass window and a dramatic fireplace. Nearby, a den/family room is warmly appointed with built-in bookshelves, a corner fireplace and French doors opening to the gardens. In the spacious dining room, a wide archway opens to the renovated kitchen with center island and window seat lounge area.
On the second floor, the master suite features a kiva-style corner fireplace, beamed ceiling and private balcony. Its spa-style bath features an oversized soaking tub and separate steam-equipped shower. The home features four more bedrooms, three more full baths and two half baths.
The walled backyard offers charming entertaining areas, an inviting pool and a picturesque grassy yard. Set in one of LA’s finest walking neighborhoods, moments from the upscale shops of Montana Avenue and the star-studded Brentwood Country Mart and two miles from the beach, this home offers an incomparable combination of city appeal, seaside attractions, and serene retreat.
428 25th Street, Santa Monica is listed at $5,100,000 by Ren Smith.
