This sleek Santa Monica contemporary offers a front-row seat of the Riviera Country Club golf course, where the likes Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Jim Furyk will tee off at the 2015 Northern Trust Open starting Thursday. Walls of glass and a large central skylight illuminate the interiors while adding volume to the free-flowing floor plan. A theater with seating for 20, a climate-controlled wine cellar and separate guest wings further the resort-like atmosphere.
