Located in the highly desirable Beverly Grove neighborhood just minutes from world-class shopping and dining on Melrose and West 3rd Street, this exquisitely crafted contemporary by Noesis is a model of style and sophistication from the outside in.
Gated and hedged, the home’s impressive floating box façade incorporates elements of wood and ceramic, with large windows and LED light strips throughout lending the exterior a distinctive twilight appeal.
Behind the custom pivot door, a voluminous, open floor plan features soaring ceilings, wide plank white oak floors, and a suspended staircase with glass and brushed stainless steel hand rails flanked by clerestory windows showcasing a unique outdoor oasis. An elegant study off the front entry is complete with Fleetwood walls of glass opening to an expansive courtyard, while a formal dining room features a suspended ceiling, Bocci light fixtures, and large windows framing lush greenery. An open, airy living room, complimented with a bookmatched stone fireplace and sliding pocket doors to the backyard, spills into an incredible gourmet kitchen equipped with an eat-in island, custom Krion countertops, touch-open cabinets, double bin sinks, and Miele appliances.
At the top of the statement-making staircase, a second level boasts an open floor plan with a light-filled living area enhanced by a backlit floating ceiling and sliding pocket doors to an outdoor lounge. Two en-suite guest rooms are spacious and bright, each featuring designer bathrooms, walk-in closets, and generous balconies. A sophisticated master suite is complete with a fireplace, wet bar, fully modular showroom closet, and gorgeous bathroom with Porcelanosa Krion countertops, a double shower, and soaking tub. A large outdoor lounge area is seamlessly integrated with sliding corner doors for a gracious indoor-outdoor feel, enhancing the space and scale of the room.
A large backyard is complete with a zero edge saltwater pool and spa and surrounded by tall hedges for privacy and seclusion.
