Los Angeles

Behind a discreet gate and wall of shrubs, is this absolute jewel of contemporary architecture. Built by the owners for themselves, this visionary retreat is a treasure in the midst of the city. A two structure compound, centered around a lush and private center garden.The extraordinary attention to detail is evident in the quality of the finishes and the layout of the rooms and structures themselves. Each aspect is artfully designed to take full advantage of the natural light and exterior elements with an ever unfolding romance between the interiors and the lush foliage and flowers of the garden. Throughout the day and throughout the seasons, the home continues to reveal itself in new ways. From any vantage point and any time of day, you have a beautiful moment to soak in the uniqueness of this home.
The main structure features a ground floor bedroom and bath and an upstairs primary suite with two private patios, a walk-in closet, sumptuous bath plus an office. The patios and rooftop feature stunning views in every direction that capture the downtown skyline, views of Hollywood, Griffith Observatory, and a sea of evening lights. The secondary structure is equally dramatic in design with large windows that frame the view of the garden like a movie screen frames a film. It features a full kitchen, office area, large living room, fantastic bath and a lovely bedroom with its own private patio area complete with a gorgeous mature lemon tree and lush foliage. Ideally situated in close proximity to the most desirable shops and restaurants as well as the noted Silver Lake farmers market.
