A masterful achievement of concept and design, this award-winning contemporary home, deftly executed by Zoltan Pali of SPF:architects and built by Dugally Oberfeld, claims a coveted lot on the exclusive Bird Streets of Los Angeles. Offered for the first time ever, the 9,000-square-foot residence showcases exquisite, museum-quality construction, warm, sophisticated interiors, and a thoughtful, open layout, with towering walls of glass taking full advantage of sweeping city and ocean vistas.
Tucked behind gates off a large motor court and four-car auto gallery, the home’s artful exteriors speak to its architectural prowess and innovative design. Laden with a series of custom-designed, Swisspearl cement board panels and geometric louvres, glass-enclosed living spaces are shielded from the sun while taking full advantage of natural light and available views. Behind a striking entry wall of board formed concrete, a tranquil meditation garden leads to a light-filled entrance gallery punctuated by a glass-paneled ceiling. Beyond the gallery, Austrian textured wood floors and stone and wood paneled walls lend warmth to gracious, open living and dining spaces, complimented by a serene water feature stretching along the perimeter of the hillside. Towering ceilings and walls of glass seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor living spaces while bringing phenomenal views to the forefront of the living experience. Two voluminous bedrooms, a custom-fabricated, Italian Del Tongo chef’s kitchen, den and bar complete the main level’s living spaces. A lower level features a custom-designed, temperature-controlled wine cellar, tiered movie theater with a 13’ wide screen, and spa with a sauna, steam and massage room.
A sculptural staircase leads to a spacious second level, which holds three generous, light-filled bedrooms. A soaring, glass-enclosed master suite is equipped with automatic shades and sliding glass doors to a large terrace that appears to float weightless over the lights of Los Angeles.
Showcasing all-encompassing city views, the home’s sliding glass walls blend organically into expansive grounds, immaculately designed by world-renowned landscape architect Andrea Cochran. Plentiful dining and lounge terraces of Italian silver travertine flow to a grand lawn—unprecedented in the hills—and 70’ infinity-edge pool and Jacuzzi, which bear the illusion of spilling dramatically over the hillside.
Fully automated with Crestron and exquisitely designed for absolute comfort and ease of living, this iconic offering is a showpiece of architectural prowess and unbridled sophistication, elevating the everyday to art in L.A.’s most coveted enclave.
