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.
It has various terraces located at different levels of the terrain, and from which the views of the mountains, which surround the house, can be pleasantly enjoyed.
In contrast to that, a smart home system represents highly sophisticated technology, providing maximum comfort with minimum energy consumption. Geothermal energy from twelve wells is used for heating and cooling, including the heating of the pool water and sanitary water. All premises are being heated and cooled through the concrete structures of the ceilings and the floors, that radiate through it’s entire surface. The Smart home infrastructure takes care about security, maintenance, user comfort, consumption, keeping record and sustainability of the entire system, the interior space and the environment itself.
The villa has been concieved according to the wishes and needs of the owner. His lifestyle is one of socializing and entertaining the numerous members of the immediate and extended family, business partners, associates and friends on a daily basis. For this reason, the villa has got three entrances and three levels of accessibility. The third level comprises of the southern entrance to the pool area and the guest’s wing on the first floor, which are accessible to the widest circle of the owner’s friends, business partners, associates and guests. The second level, with the western entrance, includes, beside the above mentioned, recreational and service areas.

A line of concrete slabs leads through the house’s garden stones, bordered by well-cared-for vegetation, all the way to the house proper. Inside, we find a welcoming environment that invites us to enjoy marvelous views through its copious glass walls.
