This spectacular new estate sits behind private gates on a lush property in Holmby Hills, Bel-Air, one of the most sought-after addresses in the world. Framed on all sides by mature trees and greenery, the contemporary 3-level, glass-encased compound boasts panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills, exquisite amenities and wonderful indoor-outdoor flow throughout.
The scale and proportions of this home are breathtaking. Secluded and utterly private, the 16,000 sq ft home was designed and built by renowned, London-based Quinn Architects and Estate Four, with a sophisticated sense of space. The main entrance is dramatic, offering an immense motor court and impressive 20 ft high canopy. This leads you to the luxuriously spacious living room, with its earth-toned color scheme, floor to ceiling glass, and soaring 20 ft high ceiling, tailor-made for displaying large-scale artwork.
The home’s interiors feature the highest quality materials throughout, from a marble-clad stairwell to custom recessed lighting to the American black walnut flooring. You’ll enjoy an abundance of natural light and high ceilings in every room. Each space feels like a suite unto itself, and almost every room boasts its own outdoor patio or balcony with views. As you travel between rooms, dramatic vistas unfold. Transparent façades and sliding doors fuse indoor and outdoor living to exhilarating effect.
Off the 75 ft central gallery – ideal for an art collector – the second living area boasts a 14 ft high ceiling and direct access to the outdoor terrace and pool. An ultra-spacious kitchen features a state-of-the-art Molteni design with integrated lighting, Dada/Miele appliances and direct access to the terraces and custom-tiled infinity pool. The resort-like grounds are ideal for relaxing and entertaining, with 6,500 sq ft of terrace space in addition to the pool, landscaped gardens, outdoor kitchen, flat lower lawn and a gorgeous astro-turf tennis court with floodlights. Mature trees provide a natural border of the property, and together with the tiered pool and gardens, it feels as if you are on a luxurious island looking out over your own private park.
Upstairs, the wide-open master suite combines a sophisticated master bedroom, huge master bath, 3 private walk-closets, powder room and separate offices. The master also boasts an extensive balcony looking out over the pool and tennis court.
The 3-level home also features 6 other elegantly appointed bedroom suites, 3 living rooms, formal dining room, 2 libraries/studies, double-height gallery, spacious fitness center, home theater, catering kitchen, elevator and wine cellar. The estate integrates a cutting-edge audio-visual system that uses an iPad interface, everything automated and with maximum security. This is truly an estate for the ages.
