What $three.eight Million Buys You in California

What $3.8 Million Buys You in California

During a major renovation, the owner of this home used materials salvaged from other buildings, including stained glass windows, pillars, and wood paneling. After construction was complete, he rented it to country singer Dolly Parton, who redesigned the pool terrace in a colorful way (the piano in the photos was hers too).

The property is half a block south of Santa Monica Boulevard and within walking distance of a Gelson supermarket and various bars and restaurants.

Size: 2,949 square feet

Price per square foot: $ 1,287

Inside: Access to the property is through a private brick courtyard with a stone well hidden from the road by a gate and lush greenery.

The front door leads into a foyer with a Spanish tiled floor. To the right is a formal living room with a wooden ceiling that was salvaged from another house. Batchelder tiles surround the fireplace, and wood and glass doors open onto the courtyard. To the left of the foyer is a formal dining room with hardwood floors and painted beams that run across the ceiling.

A kitchen with marble counters and a custom bar is adjacent to the dining room. It is open to a family room overlooking the pool area. Down a hall is a guest room that is currently used as a home office with a second fireplace made of batchelder tiles and stained glass windows. A full bathroom is across the hall.

A staircase adorned with painted tiles leads from the kitchen to the second floor, where there is a guest room with wrought iron sconces and an en suite bathroom with a stained glass window.

Directly across the landing is the master suite, which includes a bedroom, dressing area and gray marble bathroom with shower, bathtub and two vanities. In the bedroom, two glass doors open to two Juliet balconies overlooking the pool and the backyard.

Outside space: The covered terrace in the background has a Moroccan-inspired accent wall in bright colors and more color in the form of hanging glass lights. There is space for a table and chairs as well as lounge furniture. The terrace faces a swimming pool and spa. The detached garage has space for two cars and has space for two more in the driveway.

Taxes: $ 48,204 (estimated)
