Originally built in 1937, 1564 Sunset Plaza Drive has been completely reimagined for the modern lifestyle, set amidst sweeping views across Los Angeles. Situated on a corner homesite in the heart of the coveted Sunset Plaza neighborhood of West Hollywood, the three-bedroom, three-bath retreat has undergone a modern makeover, showcasing the vision of interior designer Roxy Sowlaty-Bijan.
"The home boasts refined, high-quality details at every corner and so much character," says The Agency’s Maya Librush, who represents the property. She also notes the abundant natural light and beautiful views. “It has a natural energy that you instantly feel like you’ve escaped the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles."
Sowlaty-Bijan says classic details were used in a modern way, including cabinetry, molding and hardware, balancing the details with the contemporary flooring and finishes. Among the finishes are Waterstone kitchen fixtures, book matched marble slabs in the primary bath and distinctive Kelly Wearstler designer lighting throughout.
“Our vision for updating this home was to emphasize the classic details while blending with modern details,” says Sowlaty-Bijan. “We also wanted to make the floor plan feel more open and have all of the rooms flow into each other with a focus on the beautiful view.”
Light, airy and open to the outdoors, interiors showcase custom finishes and thoughtful design details, from Macchia Vecchia marble kitchen counters to the Newport Brass fixtures in the stunning primary suite.
“We maintained some of the original molding and casings and played on these elements with meaningful updates.” Sowlaty-Bijan notes her three favorite features of the home include the kitchen, primary bedroom, and the primary closet.
“First, the stunning kitchen. I feel like as soon as we walk into the home, we all end up comfortably lounging and chatting in the kitchen.” She adds, “I love the primary bedroom; the marble and cabinet colors that we selected are so unique and soothing.” As for the closet, she says, “I love the color pulled from the primary bathroom, the symmetry and the art lights, which give the space a classic feel.”
Maya seconds Sowlaty-Bijan’s feelings about the kitchen. "I have so many favorite spaces in this home, but one of my top favorites is the kitchen. It's beautiful and inviting and feels like such a great, inspiring space to cook and bake your favorite recipes."
The home’s interiors open through receding glass doors to private patios and leafy green spaces, offering ample space to lounge, dine and entertain amidst the far-reaching city views.
