The home of late Emmy-winning TV writer-producer John Bowman and his TV writer-producer wife Shannon Gaughan has been relisted and repriced after a brief listing earlier this Summer. The East Coast-style home along Palisades Avenue in Santa Monica is now asking $16.850 million.
Sitting on more than half an acre of exquisite outdoor space, the property captures a feeling of vast possibilities with three structures surrounded by lush gardens. The remodeled five bedroom shingle-style main house sets the stage for abundant family living with four large bedrooms upstairs, including a primary suite with soaring cathedral ceilings and a luxurious spa bath, an office and a hidden playroom.
Downstairs is a full bedroom with its own bathroom, grand formal and gathering rooms each with French doors spilling into the backyard. A storybook A-frame cottage acts as a detached two story studio that provides the perfect setting for creators, musicians, writers and innovators to work in a lush setting.
Also on the property is a two bedroom guest house with kitchen and bath. Outside, park-like grounds include a custom patio firepit with an al-fresco dining deck, a swimming pool, an expansive grass lawn, rose garden and a private sport court.
Prior to the Barrowman’s purchase, Jackson Browne and Daryl Hannah also called the coastal estate home in the 1980s and ’90s.
Justin Alexander with Compass holds the listing.
