The history of Encino, California, can be traced back to Spanish expeditions in the 1760s, and while this striking home of approximately 14,000 square feet is of thoroughly new construction, it boasts a classic elegance fitting its enduring location.
Soaring ceilings and a sweeping double staircase introduce the refinement and grandeur that characterize nearly every space.
Meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail are apparent throughout, from the timeless paneling and moldings found throughout, the distinctive ceiling treatments, the opulent marble-clad baths, and the eye-catching contemporary light fixtures to the chic kitchen and family room opening through wide glass doors to the pool terrace.
Private film screenings can be enjoyed in the comfort of the impeccably outfitted home theater.
A highlight is the indoor sauna, with its elegant marble flooring and trompe l’oeil ceiling mimicking the brilliant blue sky.
The oenophile will appreciate a wine cellar and tasting room with a capacity in excess of 1,000 bottles.
On the upper level are the spacious master suite—which offers two walk-in closets and baths and a serene private deck—four guest suites, and a second relaxing living area.
The estate was designed for quintessential California living—with equal attention paid to the fabulous outdoor areas.
In addition to a sumptuous patio, swimming pool, spa, and cabaña, the grounds include a sports court, a putting green, and a grilling area. The two-story freestanding poolhouse encourages larger-scale indoor-outdoor festivities with its full kitchen and living area; it can also accommodate long-term visitors in privacy with its two bedrooms and baths.
