Golden Era Glamour for the Modern Age
With a striking silhouette, light-filled spaces, custom furnishings, and unmatched views, this sleek five-bedroom retreat is a showstopping haven in the Hollywood Hills.
For its creation, celebrity designer and builder Michael Mueller reinterpreted the glamorous Hollywood Regency style, and as author Rochelle Greayer has written, “Every detail is meant to convey luxury.”
Nearly every room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors opening to granite-slab balconies.
Seeming to float on the very edge of a mountainside in the Hollywood Hills, the home offers a unique combination of opulence and comfort. The main living and entertaining spaces share a two-sided stone fireplace, while a Lucite-walled wine cellar and an expansive view create drama in the dining room.
The home’s handsome bar has finishes of black granite and leather, a glass countertop, two Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers, and an ice maker.
A fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and oak walls, doors, and floors contribute to a warm, contemplative ambience in the library, which looks out over the city through a wall of glass.
In addition to a custom configuration of bookcases, a bar, and workstations, the media room features a sculptural chandelier, a wide-screen television, and sparkling skyline view.
Blending a captivating variety of patterns, surfaces, and hues, the kitchen will delight both the cook and the entertainer. A mica-accented granite island offers seating for four, while a second “working” island clad in Caesarstone discreetly incorporates a conduction cooktop. Surfaces of black and white lacquer help streamline appliances from Bosch, Miele, and Fisher & Paykel as well as self-closing cabinets and drawers.
A walk-in pantry is nearby, as are a yoga room, a breakfast room, and a family room with custom Mueller furnishings, an imaginative Italian chandelier, and sunset views.
The glamourous master suite comprises an inviting bedroom—one of five in the home—with a unique light fixture, Mueller-designed hemp wall coverings, a plasma-screen television mounted above the fireplace, a coffee closet, and a romantic view along with a lavish bath with a soaking tub, surfaces of Italian blue quartz, two showers, a 1940s Parisian chandelier, and view stretching across city skyline toward the ocean.
Nearby is a two-level closet and dressing room.
Secluded on a private lane, the peerless property is ideal for living and entertaining outdoors as well.
The living room, kitchen, and breakfast room open to a sophisticated loggia with a waterfall and fire feature.
One of the home’s luxuriously grassy spots easily accommodates both sculpture and an alfresco dining area with a fireplace.
Another lush swath accompanies the estate’s enticing infinity-edge swimming pool and is perfect for sun-soaked lounging.
Steps away, a spiral stairway winds to an enviable “sky lounge” with a sweeping panoramic vista, a perfect encapsulation of a home that is the pinnacle of luxurious living.
