The stunning childhood home of Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow in the highly desirable neighborhood of Gillette Regent Square in Santa Monica, California has come on the market for $17.5 million.
Built in 1913, the mansion was bought by Paltrow’s parents, renowned actress Blythe Danner and the late Bruce Paltrow, a successful director and producer, in 1976—when Paltrow was around 4 years old—and sold in 2006, property records show. It was purchased in 2008 by Parisian-born designer Jerome Dahan, founder of jeans brand Citizens of Humanity and 7 for All Mankind.
Listing agent Robert Edie of Compass praised the quality and craftsmanship of the custom home. He said, “In a market of overbuilt mansions that are undeniably starting to look and feel the same, 2020 Georgina elevates above the competition, offering a bespoke and meticulously crafted experience unlike anything I’ve seen in Santa Monica. It could easily be a cornerstone of any sophisticated real estate portfolio.”
The mansion is situated in a tropical oasis behind mature hedges and gates on a rare extra-large double lot. Inside and out, a powerful mix of high-end features and extravagant upgrades that are worth every penny take the property to the next level.
The glass-encased entry to the home is a moment unto itself and leads to an expansive living room with a fireplace, theater room and guest bedroom. The chef’s kitchen with a marble island and Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances is drenched in natural light and includes a marble island, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and a built-in dining area where legends undoubtedly dined in total comfort and privacy.
Following an extensive renovation, the property now includes interior redesign of the living room and primary bedroom, new exterior landscape and lighting, white Venetian plaster throughout the interior, upgraded security systems, a new backup power generator system and conceptual plans for an addition above the garage and guest house.
The lushly landscaped garden with mature trees, meandering pathways, a fire pit and multiple outdoor dining options leads to an impressive Balinese-inspired pool and spa. A generously sized, two-story guesthouse offers a gym, dry sauna, bedroom and office. A three-car showroom with walls of glass overlooking the pool is fit for any proud automobile owner.
Upgraded systems that can provide backup power, including solar panels, backup generators, security cameras and electronically gated entries, make the 2020 Georgina the perfect blend of Old World charm and modern luxury on one of the most coveted streets in Santa Monica.
