A SERENE RETREAT IN A CROWDED CITY
A unique home designed so masterfly, that it can only be known as Maison d’ Art.
This magnifique estate has been almost completely remodeled with great TLC. A new footing and foundation has been laid under the central core of the house with the surrounding rooms and spaces bolted to the core, to give it significant structural integrity. The expansive kitchen has been opened up to include the dining room & an abundance of windows creating a symphony of light. All bathrooms have been beautifully remodeled, with new copper plumbing throughout.
The guest quarters has a half bath, charming kitchenette, and its own separate entrance under the master bedroom at pool level. Two offices on the upper level of the home were previously bedrooms, each with it’s own entrance. The laundry area was brought up from the garage, and now placed at the center of the house, just outside the master en suite, under a pyramidal skylight (comme a la Louvre) that historically covered the Heisman trophy in the USC Sports Center. A media room with a wood-burning fireplace is just down the hall from the master en suite and it, too, could be converted to a bedroom by adding an armoire. The kitchen and dining room are located on the same level as the living room. A new 50-year standing-seam aluminum roof caps the remodel project.
This corner lot is the largest in the neighborhood at just over 9,500 sqft, it has been completely re-landscaped to provide grace, privacy, and security for the home – oasis in a busy city. The pool has been re-plumbed and resurfaced, with a water feature added for optical and audio pleasure. New meditation pathways from the pool level to the BBQ deck, then to the upper deck were created for easy access to all areas of the enclosed reflection gardens, and to the upper and lower levels of the home. Everything about the house and grounds is effectively new.
