1156 San Ysidro Dr | Beverly Hills
Set behind iron-gates lies a tranquil Italian Villa in the heart of Beverly Hills. This home was built in 2006 using the most exquisite materials imported from Argentina. The ornate stone entryway with its dramatic soaring ceilings, spiral staircase, and cathedral-like dome, sets the tone for the attention to detail and superb quality that is seen in every corner of this house. A gorgeous wood-paneled study is located right off the entryway. The formal living and dining rooms both feature coffered ceilings with intricate carvings, and inlaid floors of distressed wood with elegant artisan work that give the home such a feeling of authenticity and warmth.
A grand hallway leads to a main-level guest suite/studio, as well as a spacious Chef’s kitchen with huge center island, top-quality appliances, and breakfast area. Right adjacent to this is the family room, which features stunning built-ins, stone fireplace, as well as a view of the lush backyard— and French doors that are great for entertaining guests both in and outside.
Upstairs, is the stunning Master Suite with fireplace, and separate his-and-hers bathrooms and closets that are both very generous in size. Also on the top level are two guest bedrooms with en suite baths, and a third very large guest suite with its own balcony, en suite bath, and walk-in closet. A lovely outdoor terrace with fireplace is another place to entertain or relax on this upper-level. This balcony overlooks the backyard with its sparkling pool and spa, and outdoor barbecuing area.
Accessed either through the main spiral staircase, the back service stairs, or the home’s private elevator, is the downstairs 3rd level. On this exciting level there is a great bar for entertaining, as well as a 3,000- bottle wine cellar and wine-tasting room, enclosed behind an antique wood-vaulted door. A movie theater/card room, as well as a gym with sauna (that could be used as an 8th bedroom if necessary), is also located on this floor. This basement level also includes the laundry room as well as 2 maid’s rooms each with their own bathroom.
This gorgeous masterpiece of a home is not only great for displaying art and artwork, it is truly a piece of art in itself, and a site to be seen. (7 bedrooms, 11 baths, and approximately 11,400 square feet in size.)
