Tucked behind private gates, this Beverly Hills grande dame villa fuses timeless elegance with sophistication, impressive scale and quiet seclusion. The estate’s expansive motor court, with accommodations for eight or more cars, leads to the four-bedroom, seven-bathroom, single-story residence. Set on a flat, one-acre lot, the more than 8,000-square-foot home is a private oasis bordered by manicured hedges and mature palms. Dramatic, carved dark wood double doors reveal a light-filled foyer, which spills into a magnificent, open floor plan with floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors that capture views of the lush grounds and back patio. Expansive windows and skylights bathe the interiors in natural light and add an airiness to the richly appointed common areas. Designed for easy entertaining, 922 Benedict Canyon offers formal and informal living and dining spaces, each ideally suited for grand events or quieter, day-to-day moments. A large, paneled library/study with fireplace and bar leads into a voluminous chef’s kitchen and breakfast area. Additional amenities include a generous, comfortable media room and 750-bottle, temperature-controlled wine room.
On the opposite end of the home is the sprawling master suite, which features a sitting area, fireplace, dual showroom closets and a remarkable bath with dual vanities and soaking tub. Through French doors find an expansive, skylight-topped loggia with smooth tile floors, made for year-round al fresco dining and entertaining. Its pillars frame the verdant lawns and tall trees that surround the glamorous pool, which is accented with wall of fountains.
A classic example of refined elegance, 922 epitomizes the best of Southern California’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle while offering exquisite privacy minutes from the shops, restaurants and entertainment venues of Downtown Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard.
