Upon arrival you are greeted by a substantial wood door set into a privacy wall of mature hedges. A secure sentry, hiding the beautiful mysteries that lay beyond. This opens to a breezy courtyard, where dappled sunlight is filtered through a large tree, and the sound of gentle fountains meld with the song and conversation of the neighborhood bird life. It is the flora and the fauna. The home strikes an elegant tone, like a great Hollywood manse from decades gone by. Yet lives now as a completely rethought and renovated chic contemporary transitional home. This is evident at first step upon the French oak wood floors, and blended throughout with custom marble counters, and Lincoln windows and doors. Cohesively creating the perfect California indoor/outdoor setting and resort-styled grounds. Through a towering wall of glass, both city and mountain vista are viewed from the formal living room with fireplace, while mature greenery greets the eye through a multi-light window in the formal dining room. Just beyond, a gourmand’s dream kitchen awaits with Calcutta Quartz countertops and stainless appliances, including a double oven, built in cabinet matching fridge and freezer, pot filler, wine fridge, farmhouse sink, and tons of cabinets and pantry space. Adjacent is a large breakfast area with French doors leading back out to the tranquil courtyard, ideal for indoor/outdoor entertaining and Al fresco dining. On to the bedrooms – the primary suite includes a spa-like bathroom with custom marble counters, freestanding tub and a 2-person rain shower. While secondary bedrooms are spacious, each offering their own unique views. The lower level is accessed via a wide glass railed stairwell that transitions down to a family room, wet bar, wine room, gym, laundry and ensuite bedroom. Then on to the rear grounds, and what a site to behold! The million-dollar yard. Professionally designed and landscaped, created for endless pleasure and grand entertaining. 30-foot hedges provide the ultimate privacy to enjoy the huge sparkling saltwater pool, oversized sunken firepit with seating, grassy yard, conversation areas and multiple mature fruit trees. Looking back, you’ll see both inside and out are illuminated by custom lighting, and all is bathed in music from the Sonos sound system. Ideally located mere minutes from Mulholland Drive’s easy city access, and bustling Ventura Boulevard’s restaurants, markets and shops. This magnificent Sherman Oaks property cannot not be missed.
