Live among the tree tops in this architectural three-bedroom, four-bathroom residence. Located steps away from Franklin Canyon Park, (in a prime Beverly Hills Post Office location), this home strikes a balance between city life and nature like nothing in the area. All of today’s sought-after conveniences coexist alongside the great outdoors in this modern home. An extra-large living room offers sky-high ceilings, walls of glass, and a fireplace (one of four in the home). Art walls are here, as they are throughout this home fit for a collector. The living room opens to the outdoors on two sides; one to a balcony, the other to an outdoor patio. An open floor plan (reflective of the way we live today) combines dining, family, and kitchen areas. The gourmet kitchen is roomy enough for “too many chefs” and has a breakfast (or cocktail) bar for those who want to watch the magic happen. Other features include stainless-steel appliances and plenty of counter and cabinet space. Dining is adjacent to kitchen, has its own built-ins, fireplace (dine by fire light), and opens to a patio area.
Family rooms serve as modern centers of activity (and inactivity). This home’s family area is lined by walls of glass, has a cozy fireplace, built-in entertainment cabinetry, and access to a sky-lounge deck which is surrounded by mature trees and sunset views. Indoor-outdoor flow is at its peak here (al fresco dining works, too). Leave the doors and windows in this family room open and breeze in and out of this versatile, warm public space.
The house’s master suite is impressive, expansive, and functional. Clerestory windows and a wall of sliding doors allow light to stream in. A sitting area makes this master not only for sleeping. High ceilings make a high impact in this room. Floating above is a George Nelson light fixture, which references this home’s mid-century design leanings. Large and light, yet warm and enveloping (the home’s fourth fireplace is here), this master is unparalleled in this price band.
The master also offers an over-sized walk-in closet and a bathroom with dual sinks (in a floating cabinet), spa tub (with views), and a step-in shower.
Two other guest bedroom suites (each with their own bathroom) offer plenty of room for family members and plenty of privacy for long-term visitors. One of the two guest suites has its own office/den area.
This multi-level home has the ultimate luxury in the Hills of Beverly: Its own private elevator. Also, a large two-car garage has direct-entrance to the home’s sun-filled foyer.
The house is sited on a double-sized 11,573 sq.ft. lot, which offers residents privacy and room to move. A flat, grassy lawn (with room for a pool) is rare in the hills, but exists here under a canopy of greenery. Its park-like setting is not only close to Franklin Canyon Park, but also to Coldwater Canyon/Tree People Park. Nature is everywhere, but minutes away is the heart of Beverly Hills on one side and Ventura Blvd. on the other.
