An expansive double lot in historic Hollywoodland is the site for this magnificent 4 bedroom/ 4 bath architectural with additional large creative office/studio space featuring separate entry. Incredible outdoor entertaining spaces with swimming pool and spa. Over 4000 square feet of meticulous detail, artful execution and exceptional finishes create a completely modern and inspiring living environment that is like no other. Gated courtyard entry sets the tone with inventive steel bridge over koi filled waters leading to the front door and private studio entrances.
Enter main residence via the dramatic two story foyer with industrial skylight, circular staircase, art walls, limestone floors and warm white oak accents. Living Room with soaring vaulted ceilings and bands of clearstory windows providing streaming natural light. A disappearing wall of glass reveals the gated entry courtyard. Stunning art display wall, gas fireplace, hidden media center behind clever white oak enclosures, and natural walnut floors. Adjoining dining room with skylight opens via two sets of double doors to the swimming pool and outdoor entraining areas.
Also off the courtyard, is access to the incredible Studio/Office or Guest Suite offering high ceilings, clearstory windows, polished concrete floors, and incredible natural light. This is an ideal space for a creative home office with room for assistants and private entry for guests. A low profile, loft style mini-kitchen/wet bar offers opportunity to use the space as a separate guest studio/suite or create a dynamic home theatre/media room. The studio opens to a covered patio and charming private gardens with citrus trees, tranquil fountain, and pattered brick patio.
Exquisite Modern Kitchen with ultra sleek profile views and opens to the pool and outdoor dining via Fleetwood sliders. Subzero refrigerator/freezer, two Bosch dishwashers, Miele double ovens, Caesarstone countertops, walk-in pantry with window, stainless roll up appliance garage. Butlers pantry/bar offers additional sink, bar and serving area for entertaining.
Surprising privacy and space in the backyard. Refined swimming pool and spa with waterfall surrounded by lush grounds, and featuring views of the canyon and Hollywood Sign. Unique original Hollywoodland protected stone walls appear through a thicket of bamboo creating an especially magical environment at night. Built-in gas grill, and serving counter off kitchen with pass through make this the ultimate outdoor entertaining set-up.
The Master Suite on 2nd level is spacious with vaulted ceilings and sliding doors leading to a steel bridge providing pool access and private terrace overlooking the back-yard. Huge walk-in closet with skylight and custom California Closets is adjacent to upstairs laundry room (complete with storage and beverage cooler). Master bath is a stunner with Walker Zanger porcelain tile, natural walnut millwork, oversized shower with glass tiles, triple shower-head and picture window viewing bamboo and pool. Jet-stream tub, and dual vanity stations with plentiful storage drawers.
Optional 2nd Master or Guest Room on upper level has plenty of room for a sitting area, private terrace, walk-in closet, and gorgeous modern bath with floating Caesarstone vanity. Large frameless glass shower with Carrera marble floor and architectural window for natural light. Downstairs are two guest rooms each with en-suite baths. The larger of the two downstairs guest suites views and opens via sliding doors to the side gardens and connects to the studio offering even more options for guests and office needs. The 4th bathroom doubles as the pool bath with unique walk-in shower and recessed curtain track.
