Eco-Friendly Zen Retreat in the “Beverly Hills of Mar Vista” | 4151 Marcasel Ave

This harmonious zen retreat is located in The Oval District, just about a mile or so from the beach. The neighborhood is locally known as the “Beverly Hills of Mar Vista,” as rows of expansive, well-appointed, and/or architecturally significant homes line the streets of this exclusive enclave neighboring Culver City and Marina Del Rey.

This lovely temple of a house is sited on over 10,000 square feet of gated, park-like, drought-tolerant grounds and gardens. A floating paved walkway leads to the main house.

The exquisite home has been reimagined with a modernist floor plan with rich custom woodwork throughout, carefully purchased and placed fixtures, and beautiful hardwood floors.

The open living and dining areas create a seamless flow, and each space is bathed in natural light. The house has recessed black walnut baseboards, and window niches. The entire house comes pre-wired for sound and ethernet.

The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, a Grohe faucet and a Kohler apron sink, Caesarstone and wood countertops, floating shelves, and the most divine wood cabinetry.

The primary bedroom has its own fireplace, a unique custom bed frame, live edge shelving, a wood beamed ceiling, and an attached screened-in deck.

The en suite bathroom has a rare Ofuro-style soaking tub,  a huge walk-in shower, dual sinks, and thoughtful window choices for ventilation and ambient light.

The dreamy walk-through closet has a dressing area with organically formed door pulls, and a convenient and custom laundry pass-through.

The second bedroom in the main house currently serves as a perfect work from home office.

Completing the main house are a den primed for relaxing and hanging out and a second full bath.

The screened in porch just off the primary suite is great for Southern California beach living.

A great built-in barbecue just off the kitchen makes for ideal year round entertaining, both inside and out.

The oversized two-car garage and workshop has an attached bonus ADU so you won’t have to sacrifice your parking spaces for more living spaces.

This ADU makes for the perfect guest house. It features an open layout, concrete flooring, split system heat, and A/C.

And a gorgeous, sophisticated private bath.

This gated compound is also an eco-friendly retreat that will help you save on gas, water, and electric throughout the year. The home has updated doors and windows, updated electrical, updated plumbing, high-efficiency HVAC, custom gutters with rain barrels to help water your fruit trees, grass, and plants. And, best of all, fully paid newer solar panels on the roof.

The meandering pathways lead to enchanting gardens and contemplative outdoor spaces. Gated alley access at the rear of the property allows for private coming and going. All this with gentle ocean breezes. 4151 Marcasel in Mar Vista is a rare and wonderful offering in this increasingly exclusive west side enclave.
