715 North Alpine Drive
I am thrilled to announce my latest listing- designed for impressive entertaining and extravagant comfort, 715 North Alpine Drive is an estate of splendor and majesty in an idyllic setting in the flats of Beverly Hills. This remarkable residence has been fabulously reconstructed over a period of four years, resonating with Spanish and Moorish influences and incorporating rare treasures, such as hand-painted William Morris
beams and an art panel from Rudolph Valentino’s
bar. Nearly every room enjoys lush natural light through large illuminated skylights and huge windows. Each space is crafted with attention to beauty and livability: vaulted ceilings, hand-waxed Venetian plaster walls, woodburning fireplaces, wide arched doorways, and exquisite floors of Portuguese limestone, Brazilian mahogany, walnut, marble, or onyx. Lotus flower images recur throughout the property along with the sinuous fronds of water plants portrayed in skylights, floors, and railings on the gorgeous central staircase. The library/media room is complete with projector and drop-down screen, indoor/outdoor bar, herringbone patterned floors, and coffered ceilings, while the 10,000-bottle wine cellar includes a computerized wine system with labeling and elaborate custom ironwork. The list goes on! It is truly an estate of rare vision and fully realized beauty.
The Beverly Hills flats continues to lead as the most expensive Beverly Hills neighborhood. According to Property Shark
, the Flats in Q3 of 2018 had a median sale price of $7,425,000. 2019 looks even more promising with the January sales of 840 Greenway Drive for $25,000,000, 816 North Alpine Drive for $16,350,000 and 603 Bedford Drive listed at $15,900,000 and currently under contract.
