The main level living area flows to the outdoor living area, without one step or change in elevation. Engineered marble slabs measuring 5 x 10 feet are Italian-imported and create exquisitely seamless floors throughout. With years of dedicated experience facilitating the production and selection of customized materials for clients, Shelly and Avi have traveled to far corners of the world to bring rare, stunning, and oftentimes unexpected elements to this property. Nothing in the home exists for a singular purpose, but rather to evoke an emotional and lasting connection. Guests are sure to stop in their tracks when they experience the living room powder with its angled mirror and floating sink design. The metallic black pearl wallpaper lining the master bathroom creates a mesmerizing, kaleidoscope effect, while the 150 feet of custom floating planters outside present privacy in a captivating way.
A magnificent museum-quality, contemporary home with breathtaking city and ocean views extraordinary and unique find, even in Beverly Hills. A five-minute drive from the Beverly Hills Hotel, the luxurious gated property boasts 6 bedrooms, 10 baths, a soaring 36′ grand entry foyer and fully automated floor-to-ceiling glass walls that disappear at the touch of a button, seamlessly integrating approximately 15,500 sq. ft. of exquisite indoor/outdoor living. The home boasts every amenity imaginable, including a 100’ infinity-edge pool and a lavish outdoor entertaining area. Its Craftsman-quality finishes and fixtures are simply impossible to replicate, while imported materials, from the maid’s quarters to the master bedroom suite, transform the home into a modern work of art.
As anyone familiar with SEE Materials knows, Shelly’s design aesthetic is alluring and moving. Consider the dining room table and living room seating group, areas which are illuminated by custom designed glass tube chandeliers, or the custom leather wall commanding attention in the family room. Sharing the lower level is a theater room, climate-controlled wine room, two additional bedroom suites, and a game area that features a window looking into the pool above. Whether sipping wine at the tasting bar or upstairs soaking up the view from the 2,200-square foot master suite, one’s experience remains awe-inspiring.
One of the the clients needs was of a large and lofty formal drawing room spilling out to a garden. This resulted in a three side open, 20 feet tall, lantern like space framing views to the picturesque front lawn on the east and the eventful pool-side on the west side.
Due to the steepness of the site and the resultant excavation, the structural frame of the house virtually follows the natural ground level – this inherent drama was expressed as part of the overall aesthetic of the house”, says Tamaryn Fourie Project Leader.
