Urbane design and craftsmanship are the order of the day in this concrete, wood, and glass modern home. Despite its imposing size from outside, the home has an unmistakable sense of fluidity to it.
If you tour this home in person, be sure to pay attention to the details when you go. For instance, the wood panels to the right of the stairway in the photos above are actually cabinets that slide outward when pulling on the handrail.
On the main level, a chef’s kitchen, dining room, and family room unfold to a private patio and yard complete with a heated, saline pool.
Sliding doors and folding walls throughout the home collapse and expand its spaces, both private and public, indoors and out, for a truly unique living experience. For example the wood panels in the dining room above open up, accordion style, to completely close off this area of the home.
I particularly love the home’s connection to its surrounding outdoor space, and there is plenty of it. In fact, exploring the home’s exterior is easily as impressive, and as fun, as it is to tour the interior.
Fleetwood pocket doors completely open up the north side of the home to the private patio and yard.
The master sweet is luxurious. It features two decks with city and canyon views, a private master suite with infinity bath and an outdoor fireplace.
When it comes to views, no bedroom in this house gets shortchanged.
The outdoor spaces of the home are exceptional and feature multiple private decks, wooden walkways, and an outdoor shower that is a sculptural work of art. The landscaping is by award winning Landscape Architects James Lord and Roderick Wyllie.
Whether it’s the pool, patios, decks, or gardens, all the public rooms in this home open to some element of outdoor living and offer dramatic city and canyon views.
With ample space for 100 guests, unmatched views and total privacy, this is an entertainer’s dream house.
I could almost hear the theme song to "2001: A Space Odyssey" while contemplating this awesome outdoor shower.
Wood terraces and walkways are so beautifully designed, they’re practically an organic part of the hilly landscape along the north and east sides of the property.
Not to be overlooked is this hard-to-find and highly desirable feature for a home in the hills… a very large, perfectly flat grassy yard on the home’s west side, which could be used for pretty much any purpose imaginable.
If you’re attracted to this home because you appreciate architecture, then you will also enjoy the fact that it finds very good company in its neighbors. Right next-door is the historic architectural monument, the Lovell Health House by Richard Neutra
