Architectural perfection, masterful design and an exquisite site make this modern residence a flawless study in beauty and convenience, ideal for gracious indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. The Beverly Hills property was designed by James Magni of Magni Kalman Design, named one of Architectural Digest's Top 100 Designers, in collaboration with Kovac Architects. Clean sight lines and disappearing walls open to breathtaking vistas of city, ocean, and Catalina Island. Luminous throughout, the home is both functional and restrained, spaces flowing easily into one another and out to the swimming pool and inviting terraces. From every angle, the home expresses tranquility, serenity, and balance.
Custom stainless steel entry gates lead to a pair of glass doors and an open floor plan with a gallery, high ceilings and custom terrazzo floors. The lounge, with its disappearing glass walls that open out to the pool, includes a bar area as well as a 240-bottle, temperature-controlled wine cooler. The dining room seats 12 and looks out onto a tranquil garden and ocean view. The exquisite chef’s kitchen has a large, lighted white quartz island, expansive Eurostone countertops, a separate butler’s staging area, two Miele dishwashers, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range, and, just outside, a fireplace. The downstairs also includes a living room with disappearing/stackable sliding doors and marble fireplace; a second en suite bedroom / screening room with a Blu-ray Theater System and views of the ocean; a third en suite bedroom with a private terrace; and a powder room.
The master suite commands the entire upper level. Custom-stained rift oak floors and bleached sycamore cabinetry set the tone for this harmonious retreat, complete with his and her bathrooms and closets, a refreshment bar, private outdoor view terrace with a fire element and a private yoga/meditation garden.
The exterior invites relaxation and celebration with its pool and expansive deck and entertainment center with a bar and outdoor kitchen complete with a Wolf BBQ, ice maker, refrigerator, television and heating lamps. A fireplace and several seating areas take in the compelling view day and night. There is also a private yoga/meditation garden.
Additional features include a Savant home automation system, Lutron lighting, custom cabinetry, air conditioning, a fountain, and a three-car garage.
Elegant in its simplicity and restful in its design and setting, this is a rare gem in an exceptional Beverly Hills location.
