1292 Monte Cielo | Beverly Hills
Fragrant fruit trees and evergreens rustle in the canyon breezes. An expansive pool ripples in the sunlight. Fountains trickle on the grand European-style terrace. 1292 Monte Cielo awaits you. This freshly reinvented compound combines the best of the outdoor California lifestyle with a rustic, elegant aesthetic reminiscent of Aspen or Aix-en-Provence. Just beyond the entry gates, the main residence sits atop a multi-tiered acre of land that spills down the lush Coldwater Canyon hillside. The open floor plan public rooms combine rough-hewn features like high carved-wood ceilings and stone floors with urbane details like a gourmet kitchen and tall Palladian French doors. Upstairs is a true master suite, with sitting room, fireplace, vaulted whitewashed-wood ceilings, dual Carrera marble baths, walk-in closets, a balcony with private spa, and canyon views. There are three additional bedrooms suites. Skylights throughout flood the residence with light.
Close by is a generously sized guest house, with a media/game room, temperature-controlled wine storage, bar/kitchen, and two guest rooms on the lower level. Below that is a separate studio apartment with kitchenette. The skinny-dip private pool rests on its own terrace beneath the residences, while a lighted North/South tennis court enclosed by ivy and bougainvillea, as well as an additional two-car garage, occupies the lowest tier of the property. Charming wooden stairs connect each level of this marvelous estate. Survey your domain from the main upper terrace, where a greenhouse nurtures exotic plants, and the vast deck invites grand-scale alfresco entertaining. 1292 Monte Cielo is endowed with a multitude of enchanting elements, rare indeed in Beverly Hills, or in fact, anywhere.
