Tucked behind gates on over an acre of lush grounds, this exquisite modern estate claims a prized double lot in one of Beverly Hills’ most coveted neighborhoods, offering the perfect balance of intimate corners and open spaces with the feeling of being worlds away from it all.
Surrounded by mature trees for privacy and seclusion, beautifully landscaped walkways, punctuated by striking water and fire features, lead to the 7,137-square-foot main residence. A refined foyer opens to generous, light-filled living spaces, including an expansive family room with oak floors, an elegant bar, fireplace and temperature-controlled wine room. A chef’s kitchen is complete with Viking and Dacor appliances and a large center island, while a wall of glass off the sun room overlooks the pool and waterfall. Two powder rooms, a formal dining room, staff quarters, and an elevator complete the main level’s offerings.
At the top of a sculptural staircase, a generous second story holds a voluminous master suite with dual bathrooms and walk-in closets, soaring vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, adjoining office and gym with a full bathroom, and French doors to a private terrace overlooking the resort-like grounds. An adjacent sitting area is a welcomed retreat, while two en suite guest rooms boast access to a balcony overlooking the pool and grounds.
Outside, an ample entertaining terrace leads down to a sprawling grassy backyard featuring a spa and swimming pool with its own bathroom and shower. A fully-hedged and lighted east-west tennis court is thoughtfully removed from the main level, offering privacy for players
