Designed by Wylan/James and situated on a secure and private street in lower Mandeville, this architectural estate is brand new and just listed by Derrick Smith of Coldwell Banker Realty in Beverly Hills. As Smith explains, the gated property sits on more than .8 acre, on a cul-de-sac at the end of a long private drive, where it commands “the best views in Brentwood.” The home’s design is contoured to provide city lights, coastline and tree-top views from nearly every room.
With large gallery walls of sandblasted travertine and Roman clay plus floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood glass doors, oak millwork and clerestory windows, the rooms are filled with the warm glow of natural light. Surrounded by expansive patios, an infinity pool and wraparound decks, the six-bedroom residence provides numerous settings for comfortable living and impressive entertaining.
The main living level features a contemporary great room with two large sitting areas, each with a fireplace, and a sleek chef’s kitchen with an oversize island, top-of-the-line Miele appliances, a walk-in pantry and cabinets custom crafted from eco-friendly materials.
One of the fireplaces is double-sided, with the second side facing the formal dining room, which also provides access to a generous wine room. The living, dining and kitchen areas all open to the pool, outside entertaining areas and views. Also on the main level is a fitness center, a luxurious home theater, a den/office and an en-suite bedroom.
On the upper level, the all en-suite bedrooms each have a walk-in closet and direct access to either the landscaped yard or a private balcony. The ocean-view corner primary suite has radiant heated floors, dual walk-in closets, a hidden kitchen and a spa-inspired bath, which also opens onto the view balcony. The upper level also has a sheltered central patio with a fire pit and service bar.
The grounds are landscaped for maximum views and privacy and feature an enclosed yard with olive trees, a dining area and a fire pit, plus the spacious backyard complete with infinity pool and spa, dining pergola, outdoor kitchen and a large fire pit with built-in seating.
As Smith explains, the estate combines “opulence, sustainability and tranquility.”
