Remember this romantic beach bungalow that the amazing design duo Steve and Brooke Giannetti built in Santa Monica?
It popped up in all kinds of magazines and blogs over the years, and I featured it when they sold it in 2012.
I was excited to hear it’s on the market again so we can see how it’s changed since then. Take a look!

A Romantic Bungalow by the Beach
The house was featured on the cover of Romantic Homes in 2010.
There are 5 bedrooms, 6 baths + 4,235 square feet.
Brooke said at the time, “Steve and I wanted it to feel like an old beach cottage.”
According to Variety, the seller is Hollywood producer Jonathan Murray:
Pioneering reality television super-producer Jonathan Murray, one half of the powerhouse Bunim/Murray production company, listed a beachy, farmhouse-style cottage in a low-key but highly desirable neighborhood of Santa Monica, CA, with a $5,250,000 price tag.
The multiple Emmy winning producer, co-creator of MTV’s “Real World,” a longtime executive producer for “Project Runway” and, for better or worse depending on one’s point of view, one of the people responsible for putting “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and other brainlessly fluffy but enormously popular reality TV fare on the boob tube, purchased the property in April 2012 for $3.95 million.

The listing says:

Tongue & grooved walls & ceilings, wide-board pine floors, beams, windowed walls, French doors, extensive built-ins, window seats & antique architectural elements are backdrop for free-flowing, open floor plan.

They’re asking $5.25 million for the Beach Bungalow at 258 16th Street in Santa Monica.
