Strikingly sleek and serene, this five-bedroom, 9,997-square-foot home is filled with glorious light thanks to expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and “disappearing” glass doors.
It enjoys unparalleled views of the city skyline and sunsets—from an array of indoor and outdoor living areas as well as its one-of-a-kind glass-enveloped swimming pool.
A symbol of resilience and freedom to the ancient Greeks, the cork tree inspired the creation of this one-of-a-kind contemporary home, which integrates a mature cork oak into its design.
The roughly 10,000-square-foot estate combines a high level of contemporary luxury with a unique sense of comfort and conviviality.
From its perch in the Hollywood Hills, it enjoys breathtaking vistas of the city skyline and sunsets. The location, in the iconic Bird Streets, is revered for its views and proximity to the Sunset Strip.
The open-plan layout spreads elegantly across multiple levels and is filled with glorious light thanks to expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and “disappearing” motorized Fleetwood pocket doors.
The five serene bedrooms and 10 baths include an outsize master suite with a marble-clad “wet room” in the bath.
In addition, the residence offers a seductive variety of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces served by a state-of-the-art Bulthaup kitchen, allowing for the most stylish and festive modern entertaining.
Garage space for four cars is also provided. Throughout, audio and electronic systems are top-tier, finishes are stylish, and lines are clean, while surfaces of wide-plank walnut and Italian breccia stone contribute texture and a sense of earthy warmth.
The wine cellar is given a clever twist by being outfitted to hold tequila bottles as well.The pièce de résistance, however, is the infinity-edge swimming pool perched on the home’s outer edge.
Composed of glass on three sides, it allows swimmers to enjoy a view of the Los Angeles skyline from beneath the water’s surface. A home theater looks up into the pool from below; automatic shades can be drawn in to create privacy and separation.
In addition to approximately 5,000 square feet of deck and patio space, highlights include a secluded backyard whirlpool tub and a “wellness alcove.”
This is a rare, consummately stylish location for enjoying the freedom represented by that stalwart cork tree.
