MONUMENTAL BEL AIR HOME
Encased in Travertine stone, this monumentally scaled Bel Air home, on Linda Flora Dr, is wonderfully reminiscent of Richard Meier’s Getty Museum. The impressive Californian compound is found at the end of an impressively long and gated driveway that overlooks the 350 acre untouched Hoag Canyon.
The luscious scenery that surrounds the home provides a level privacy that is not common in LA properties, which allows the homeowner to peacefully enjoy the seamless indoor-outdoor living experience that is encouraged by the homes huge retractable glass walls.
The serene scheme continues throughout each area of the home. Inside the home, 14 feet high ceilings give the room schemes space to breathe, making this a calming place–though the proportions of the house also lends its use to entertaining many guests too.
This incredibly spacious spa-style bathroom suite has a twin vanity unit, freestanding bathtub, and a walk-in waterfall shower.
A reflection pool view can also be had from the breakfast area in the top-notch chef’s kitchen, which features a massive island in the center of the vast space. It’s possible to close-off the chef’s kitchen during occasions when catering is in progress, or it can be left open to enjoy as part of the open plan flow that includes the expansive living and dining areas.
A roof-long skylight in the 34 feet high central gallery is the crowning glory of this home, letting in a stream of natural sunlight and giving the home a continually moving skyscape of clouds and stars.
Elsewhere in the home is a private office; a library that offers a view down into the wine room through its glass floor; a roomy dressing room/closet with a swish boutique style, and an extensive deck that offers up an outdoor fireplace to keep the homeowner cozy whilst they soak in the awesome views beyond the pool and lawns
