This West Hollywood home is in the center of it all, yet discretely and securely tucked away behind gated hedges on a quiet tree-lined street. Once behind the gates, a 4-car driveway is revealed with direct access to the front and backyard through custom wooden gates. A large fountain, lush landscaping, and multileveled bricked patios offer a serene outdoor area that’s perfect for relaxing.
Double doors open into a tiled entry allowing shoes or a coat to come off before stepping into the massive open floor plan of the living, dining, and family rooms. The living room offers a formal experience with a custom fireplace (controlled by remote) and beautiful hardwood floors. Recessed lighting and a large picture window make the room bright and warm. Custom wood posts divide the formal living and dining room allowing for entertaining and hosting dinner parties. The dining area offers custom-built skylights along with custom sliding windows all of which have beveled glass mirroring the clean lines of the wood posts and chair railing. Recessed lighting with controlled dimmers above (and throughout the home) allow for setting the mood in any room of the home.
The open kitchen features high-end stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry. Double ovens are situated next to a 5 burner gas stove making the perfect combination for the cook. Two sinks for prepping (or Kosher cooking), a filtered water system, and a double-door fridge complete this premium kitchen. Black Caesarstone counters make the stainless steel appliances shine and multiple breakfast bar areas are situated around the kitchen, perfect for eating or leaning on while talking to the cook. Stepping away from the kitchen, you enter the family room with beautiful, custom architectural skylights. This area is perfect for the more relaxed days of the week watching a movie with friends and family or sipping a glass of wine. Off the family is a beautiful outdoor patio that is elevated above the backyard, yet is still perfectly private. With plenty of room for entertaining your guests or lounging alone, this is the perfect getaway just steps from the inside of the home. Also off the patio is a staircase leading into the large backyard.
Beyond the entertaining areas, the first floor of the home includes a master bedroom with views of the beautiful treetops in the backyard. Two entry options into the room, from the hallway or family room, create a nice flow for the room. Two separate closets allow for large wardrobes and storage. The master bathroom has beautiful custom tile work and multiple shower heads to create a spa-like experience.
Down the hall is a guest bedroom with access to the front yard and custom built-in bookshelves. This room is perfect for guests or a home office/library and also features double entryways, double doors opening into the living room, and also an entry into the hallway. A guest bathroom with black and white tiled floors and custom cabinets creates a high-end feel. The bathroom also has an enclosed laundry room with a high-end stackable washer and dryer and shelves for linens.
A custom glass and wooden staircase lead the way to the second floor of the home which is situated downstairs below the main level of the house. This part of the home is truly rare and offers many options for the owner. The stairway is concealed behind a door with additional storage in the hall perfect for luggage or seasonal decorations. The large bedroom has views of the backyard and a full bathroom with custom double sinks and allows for the perfect guest retreat or extended family member’s stay.
This level also includes a mother-in-law kitchenette and a second laundry room with a high-end washer/dryer. The kitchen (once operating as a recording area of a studio) offers easy access to food and drink or can be easily converted into a projection room, media storage, or left to serve its current purpose. A truly versatile space waits just on the other side of the kitchen which currently functions as a recording studio. This room has many useful options and is a wonderful bonus space for a homeowner to have and can be used as a living space, screening room, or additional lounging area.
The lower part of the home opens into the backyard with multiple covered and open entertaining areas hidden with large manicured hedges that create privacy. The property has fruit trees and a garden area perfect for skipping the market for fresh fruit or herbs.
The home also offers the quintessential white picket fence which separates the main house from the full guest home. A separate entrance from the side of the yard makes this convenient for extended guests or family to enter the guest house with privacy and ease. A large room offers the perfect amount of space for the already installed kitchen area, and living and dining space. A separate bedroom encloses the living space with a walk-in closet. The guest house also offers a fully remodeled bathroom with custom tile work and a Jacuzzi tub. An exterior area that is hidden away from the rest of the property offers privacy and lounging areas for the guests. Also featured is a third laundry area so entrance into the main house is not necessary.
