The beautifully crafted home, which features magnificent city and mountain views, is a private retreat to the north of Wilshire Boulevard, within close reach of some of L.A.’s most acclaimed schools and an array of shopping and dining at the nearby Westwood Village.
The culturally-rich Spanish influence graces the homes exterior, which features a red terracotta tile roof, Mediterranean style arches and rounded picture windows.

In the main living area, the kitchen, dining and living areas are all open, flowing graciously to one another, while a double-sided fireplace casts a warm glow over the space. The gourmet kitchen is awash in marble, featuring Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, plus a Miele Espresso machine.
The interior space seamlessly flows to the magnificent outdoor living area through Fleetwood glass pocket doors that recede into the walls. Off the kitchen, a courtyard is the ideal space for alfresco dining or lounging, replete with an outdoor cooking area and two outdoor heaters for those cooler California evenings. Steps away, a separate cabana houses a TV or lounging area, custom built-in cabinetry, wet bar and full bath. The Pebbletech pool and spa offers an array of automated water features, while two lush, grassy areas and a fire pit area complete the fully private fenced in outdoor living space.
Stepping in through the home’s main living area, a grand, floating staircase ascends from the foyer to the upper level. Its beautiful silver railing, accented with walnut oak caps, continues around the upper level family room which overlooks the foyer on one end and the lower level’s main living area on the other.
The master bedroom wing offers absolute privacy and serenity, featuring a dedicated terrace overlooking the pool, a spacious walk-in closet, and a Spanish, spa-style master bath with dual vanities, tub and dual shower.

Separate service quarters are conveniently located on the lower level.
A second staircase leads to the home’s apex - a rooftop deck with magnificent views of the surrounding hillsides, Hollywood and the Wilshire Corridor. The deck is the ideal space for a spa or a second entertaining and lounging area, wired for an outdoor kitchen with BBQ grill.
