9140 St Ives Dr | Sunset Strip
Sited on a lushly-planted lot in the coveted “Bird” streets, this three-bedroom, four-bathroom, modern villa is the ultimate year-round resort retreat. Rivaling a five-star hotel, and offering a romantic setting, this home pays particular attention to detail and offers stunning city views from almost every room. The home is infused with warmth and light, and all doors open out to either balconies or to the spectacular outdoor lounge/dining area where an alfresco lifestyle is encouraged.
Enter thru wooden doors to a covered Spanish tile walkway that leads you to the main level which consists of a pro-style kitchen with Carrara marble counters (highlighted by Thermador, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances) and the family room with its 20’ pocket doors which open to the city below. (A powder room is also on this level.) Ascend up a flight of stairs to the generously-sized master bedroom with tile fireplace and a master bath with large double shower and sinks. Here you will find Ann Sacks stone floors and counters with a custom vanity designed by Peter Dunham and a spacious walk-in closet. A secondary en-suite bedroom completes this level. Below, one discovers a great room which is highlighted by 14’ wood-beamed ceilings, walls of glass, and 2 sets of French doors that open to both the pool and the outdoor living/dining areas. Features include a 7-speaker surround sound system, a 110” retractable, in-ceiling movie screen and a remote-controlled fireplace set behind the Donghia cushioned lounge area. An enviable gym and resort style spa enhance this offering.
Outside is the ultimate entertaining area with a 40’ infinity-edge pool & spa with custom tiling, and an impressively large outdoor kitchen with 3 fridges, a farmhouse marble sink and a bar. Plus there’s an incredible covered living/dining area with a one-of-a-kind dining table for 12 with an antique pottery base and a Walker Zanger chiseled edge, honed marble table top and a custom fireplace. If you lived here you’d already be on vacation.
