The upper level master has a palatial walk-in closet, bath with Italian marble walls, and a private balcony for sun bathing or star gazing. Smart-home technology provides comfort and security. The oversized garage has room for a stackable lift. The spacious and serene back yard is very private with firepit, swimmer’s pool and spa, plus covered patio areas and an outdoor kitchen.

Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, California
Atop the summit of Mount Olympus soars this stunning architectural tour de force, an entertainer’s paradise with breathtaking views of the City lights below. Walking through the private gates, you are immediately awestruck by the exceptional artisanal details of this contemporary estate: from the chiseled stone canopy, to the 20 foot vertical sculptural light, to the 10 foot oak door with matte black steel handle. As you ascend the glass and European oak staircase, the expansive great room welcomes you with 12’ high ceilings, lavish light and air, floor to ceiling windows, and views from Downtown LA to Palos Verdes. The sleek professional Miele kitchen with leathered granite island, custom oak cabinetry, downdraft hood, induction cooktop, abundant island seating, and dual dishwashers make this one of a kind kitchen the dream place to dine and entertain. Step out to a rich pebble deck that accentuates the unrestrained spaciousness of the interiors, and the indoor outdoor feeling of this quintessential contemporary home. For more elaborate full scale dinners, continue to the formal dining area, complete with a stunning signature three sided fireplace and architectural designer lighting.
As you retire to the beautifully appointed master wing, you feel as if you have checked into a 6-star resort, with two walk in closets, and a spacious outdoor patio overlooking the pool and city lights. Azul Cielo marble clads every surface of the extravagant master bathroom: two showers, an extra large soaker tub and a sensual countertop with necklace light pendants dangling above. A perfectly placed window overlooks the Hollywood Hills. Generous stairs brings you downstairs to yet another level of LA living at its best. A second master suite is a showstopper with all glass walls opening out onto drought tolerant landscaping and a rectilinear pool and spa. Continue to entertain outside with a custom glass firepit and Lynx barbeque, combining for endless relaxation and entertaining possibilities. After a dip in the spa, come back inside and enjoy cocktails in your media room clad with dark oak walls.
