American Dream TV: Episode 5

Ahead of the Curve Homes is back at it with Episode 5 of American Dream TV!

Your Local Real Estate Experts Erica Lockhart and Lorin Ruttenberg return to ADTV showcase a very special new property in Santa Monica, CA: 1402 Hill Street.

Watch the segment here:


We are pleased to present one of the most artistic, finely crafted, custom-built, new construction homes you’ve likely ever seen: 1402 Hill Street in Santa Monica, CA.


We were lucky enough to speak directly with the builders of this elegant, thoughtfully considered, creative home: Damian Bellano and Andre Farhang of Gaia Construction. Their main goal was to create an architectural character home that meets the needs of today’s living, but yet be different than typical spec homes you see around town. And they delivered!


1402 Hill Street, Santa Monica:

The space seems to float in the air and the house defies boundaries between outside and in, making the entire lot feel like living space. Rarely is a space so well planned and efficiently used. The features of the home are numerous including White Oak wide plank wood floors, Italian tile and porcelain throughout, custom-made Arto Brick wraps the exterior and seamlessly punctuates the interior, rift white oak cabinetry, Thermador appliances, Control 4 home automation system, triple zone, high efficiency AC system, La Cantina/Western doors and windows, solar system, and a rooftop deck with power, water and gas and views of the ocean, mountains and city at large. Additionally there is a detached guest house that feels like an elegant, modern tree house. It’s equipped with 1.5 baths, a full kitchen, a balcony and sublime city and tree top views. All of this is just blocks from terrific shopping and dining along Ocean Park Boulevard. If you want the peace-of-mind brand new construction offers, yet feel bored with the sameness of most of the homes in the marketplace, don’t miss the opportunity to view this. 1402 Hill is an elegant, thoughtfully considered, creative space that sets a new vision for what a new build can accomplish.
