It seems improbable that one could find a 1-acre, drive-on estate with sweeping panoramic views of the city, yet within walking distance of the famed Sunset Strip, and in particular, the world-class shopping, dining and entertainment of Sunset Plaza. But upon arriving at the gated entrance to the home at 1232 Sunset Plaza, that is exactly what one will find; that and much, much more.

It is no surprise then that Robb Report has anointed the Hagy Belzberg-designed estate the “King of the Hill” in the magazine’s latest home spotlight.

In featuring 1232 Sunset Plaza, Robb Report takes note of the California modern home’s unmatched location and privacy:

The 1-acre residential compound … is located at 1232 Sunset Plaza Drive, just above the bustling Sunset Strip, but its mountainside perch affords ample privacy thanks to strategic landscaping and carefully placed windows, the latter of which take in the views without sacrificing discretion.

Indeed, discretion was paramount for co-owners/developers Leo Hauser and Brad Blumenthal, who wanted to create a resort-like sanctuary where privacy was held to the highest standard and one could run their entire life within its spacious confines, from family life to business to entertaining.

“What differentiates this home from many statement homes is the ‘compound’ feeling, the estate feeling, as opposed to a big house on a relatively small piece of land with a pool,” notes Hauser.

Blumenthal adds, “We’ve cast a very wide net in the way in which we have constructed Sunset Plaza, a real home where you can have a family but also don’t have to leave your compound in order to run your business or go about your daily life.”
