A rare offering on L.A.’s Westside, this enviable estate is tucked at the end of a long private drive on a generous 1.9-acre site.
The result of many years of assiduous planning and design and meticulous construction, it achieves an often-difficult feat, tastefully combining traditional detail with contemporary flair, East Coast style with West Coast proportions.
The home’s striking white façade and pitched shingled roof recalls seaside homes of Cape Cod, the Hamptons, and other enviable classical locales, yet the square footage befits the openness and generosity of the West.
The residence offers nine comfortable bedrooms, 14 lavish baths, and a host of other desirable spaces designed for the most luxurious living and consummate entertaining.
An impressively scaled foyer with a majestic double staircase introduces the home’s unique style and expansiveness.
Beyond lie rooms that are practically de rigueur for any modern estate—formal living and dining rooms, a handsome wood-paneled library, a family room, an impeccably outfitted gourmet kitchen.
What distinguishes the home are the spaces less expected: a billiards room, three bars, a full catering kitchen, a fitness area, a private screening room with seating for 10, and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar.
The master suite includes a serene sitting room with a wet bar as well as two marble baths and two thoughtfully appointed walk-in closets.
Crestron home automation allows for nearly effortless control of the household systems, and the secluded staff suite offers two bedrooms and its own kitchen.
In addition to an “everyday” three-car garage, the estate accommodates the automobile aficionado or collector with its 12-vehicle “car museum.”
Outdoors, a swimming pool stretching to 69 feet in length is accompanied by a wide-open brilliant-green lawn.
Terraces open to the outdoors from nearly every room, allowing for the appreciation of California’s distinctive native flora and famous sunset skies.
