Inside Gwyneth Paltrow’s former Santa Monica home

by HomeDecorBeauty


Gwyneth Paltrow’s childhood home in Santa Monica’s Gillette Regent Square neighborhood is on the market for $17.5 million.

The home purchased by Gwyneth’s parents, Bruce and Blythe, in 1976 (when Gwyneth was four years old) was the actress’ long-time home while growing up in the Los Angeles area. She was known to attend the prestigious Crossroads High School nearby. Jerome Dahan, the co-founder of Citizens of Humanity and 7 for All Mankind, later bought the home in 2008.

It is easy to see the appeal behind the property, with its beautiful grounds that cover the almost half-acre lot – a rarity in Santa Monica. This urban oasis is one of the most verdant homes in the city – and undeniably one of the world’s best homes. Here, we tour the unique estate that shaped the Academy Award winner.

Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most celebrated actresses of the late ’90s, starring in Shakespeare in Love, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Royal Tenenbaums. The Los Angeles-born actress now heads her modern lifestyle brand goop and serves as the face of Estée Lauder. However, her early life began in this home.

The 6,887-square-foot property is perhaps best admired for its therapeutic garden ideas, whose size is uncommon in such a metropolis. And while its façade and yard are something to behold, its interiors are just as tropical.

The glass-encased formal entry leads into the expansive living room that is surrounded by greenery. The room exhibits a white and purple color scheme that complements the organic surroundings that are seen through the windows. There is also a fireplace, chandelier, and window seat to observe the palms.

Flowing from the living room, the chef’s kitchen continues to pay homage to the home’s eclectic color ideas. The space features a central marble island, top-of-the-line Wolf and Subzero appliances, and a dining area that is, once again, crowned with a statement light fixture.

Meanwhile, the upper floor is devoted to bedrooms, topped by the generous main suite, which includes dual bathrooms, a luxurious walk-in closet, and a balcony overlooking the Balinese-inspired pool.

Alongside the luxurious pool ideas, this exterior has reset the bar for urban gardens. The grounds feature meandering paths, fountains, mature trees (including the unmistakable palm), and a spa area. A sauna is located in the two-story guesthouse that comes with its own amenities, including a bedroom, and gym.

It is perhaps unsurprising that Gwyneth Paltrow’s childhood home is so noteworthy when you consider the prestigious postcode in which it sits. Famed for its larger lots, mature street trees, and proximity to Palisades Park, which overlooks the Pacific, the area is home to some of the most admired homes in the LA beach city, and this estate is no exception.
