In what was undoubtedly the VIP open of the season, Million Dollar Listing LA’s James Harris and David Parnes hosted esteemed guests for an exclusive twilight soiree at 511 N. Arden Drive, a stunning, newly constructed contemporary home in the heart of Beverly Hills.

James and David greeted attendees on arrival, inviting them to explore the magnificent trophy property while indulging in an intimate ROE Caviar tasting and savory hors d'oeuvres by Choux Choux. Crafted largely of glass and steel, the home features a gracious, open floor plan perfectly suited for entertaining, with a striking floating staircase, exquisite European finishes, and sliding walls of glass that blur the line between indoors and out. From bites in the great room to sips in the backyard, guests moved freely between the open living areas and phenomenal chef’s kitchen to serene, olive tree-studded grounds, enjoying Jardesca cocktails, VieVite rosé, Lucien Albrecht champagne and ice cold Peronis served at the built-in, poolside bar.

As the evening progressed, guests made their way to the home’s expansive lower entertainer’s level, which boasts a plush movie theatre, gym and sauna. Others toured the sweeping second floor, which holds a luxurious master suite with incredible showroom closets, a soaking tub and bookmatched Italian marble shower.

“511 N. Arden has it all,” says James. “A prime Beverly Hills location, exquisite interiors and a perfect indoor-outdoor flow for enjoying the coveted California lifestyle.” Adds David, “It was a pleasure to host our clients, colleagues and friends for an exceptional evening at what is certainly one of the city’s standout properties."
