Santa Monica — if you haven’t been there in person, you’ve certainly seen it on TV: bodybuilders pumping iron at the original Muscle Beach, the Pier’s illuminated ferris wheel reflecting in the water, long-haired skateboarders ripping through Dogtown. The iconic beachfront city basks in an average of 310 sunshine days per year and its locals are known for their fitness fanfare.
Sound promising? Located just one block from the beach and minutes from the Pier is The Waverly, an exclusive condominium residence featuring interiors by world-renowned Marmol Radziner and Associates. Residence 10, located on the fifth floor, boasts two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a wraparound terrace with north and east exposures. The great room and den are separated by a dual-sided fireplace and the open kitchen includes a wine refrigerator and polished Sea Pearl quartzite countertops.
The master bedroom has an expansive walk-in closet and the ensuite is outfitted with a spa bathtub, glass enclosed shower and a double vanity. The master and second bedroom have access to an additional terrace that’s perfect for taking in the view of the city or star-spotting along Ocean Boulevard.
