In a galaxy not so far away—think the coveted enclave of Hidden Hills in L.A.—is an estate that pairs stellar, highly imaginative design elements with cool, contemporary comforts.
Located up a private driveway within a gated community, this six-bedroom, 11-bath home was designed by Brian Lerman of L.A.-based ARC Design Group. Inside the 18,183-square-foot Craftsman-style home are soaring ceilings, hardwood, and tile floors and plenty of large, exquisitely designed windows. Natural light illuminates warm modern features such as large stone slab fireplaces, stunning clerestory windows, wrought iron detailing and unique chandeliers.
In the kitchen find limestone countertops, two large islands, wood-paneled cabinetry and SubZero, and Wolf appliances. Walls of glass doors lead out to the backyard, which boasts a full-size tennis court, a pool, and spa with waterfall, a large patio with a fire pit, a grassy lawn and an organic garden with fruit trees.
But the crown jewel of 5824 Jed Smith Road may actually be hidden on the home’s lower level, where a specially-designed 18-seat home theatre boasts incredible Star Wars-inspired decorative details and middle seats programmed to move in synchronization with a film’s special effects.
In addition to the theater, the estate boasts a number of other unforgettable features, such as a private on-site observatory complete with telescope, basement entertainment complex with home theater, a dedicated wine room, a fitness studio, massage room with an indoor heated pool, an aquarium and a six-car garage. The estate is also equipped with a 24 kW solar system with propane generator backup.
5824 Jed Smith Road’s Hidden Hills location offers interstellar-like privacy while still providing access to a range of earthly amenities—it’s just minutes from Calabasas’ popular shops and restaurants as well as the Calabasas Country Club and Malibu over the hill.
