Two important criteria for the clients were that the project had to include a central courtyard and that the main living areas were to have double volume. At the front of the plot the concept of a traditional Cape Dutch Langhuis with gabled ends was conceptualized. This part of the house was designed to contain the formal lounge & dining, informal lounge & braai room as well as the master bedroom and en-suite, giving all these areas direct access to the front pool terrace with spectacular views to the surrounding vineyards and mountains. In the Langhuis open trusses were used to give all the rooms a larger volume. To the rear of the Langhuis the two side wings and a linking lobby create a sheltered central courtyard which also visually links the kitchen to the family TV lounge. Identical feature stairs link to the guest bedroom suites located in the roof lofts of these back wings.
Venture outside to the incredible infinity-edged pool featuring a 12 person spa, fireplace, and entertainment area. The partially-submerged chaise lounges, reminiscent of a Greek island getaway, face the Pacific ocean in the distance as the basin of Los Angeles unfolds like a blanket. Taken altogether, the home demonstrates how the cleanest lines and understated detailing can create the most profound impact. To describe this home as anything less than a team’s greatest work falls short of its brilliance. Every detail of this majestic estate showcases the five years of heart and dedication that went into making 9945 Beverly Grove the perfection that it is, a truly one-of-a-kind property of rare distinction.
The design is both innately beautiful and functional; a concept that Shelly and Avi Osadon, the husband and wife duo behind SEE Materials and SEE Construction, flawlessly choreographed. Upon arrival, the first of a series of show-stopping moments is its impressive scale with an attention to detail that is never compromised. The grand pivot door sweeps open to reveal a 36-foot high ceiling and gleaming chandelier comprised of 25 custom, glass-blown globes. This enormous entry space offers a view through the home to the backyard in one continual gaze.
