So much elegance overhead! That, along with the flowing open floor plan and Fleetwood doors, which allow the outside in, and vice versa, is reminiscent of a swanky island retreat.
And yet, this tropical oasis is located right in L.A.’s historic and upscale neighborhood beloved by celebrities, including Angelina Jolie, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd, Jon Hamm, and Colin Farrell.
Those coffered walnut ceilings extend right out into the porte-cochere, which, as you’ll notice, also has an auto turntable, so you don’t have to back your car down the long, private drive that leads up to the home.
Originally built in 1955, the home, which has a decidedly tropical aesthetic, has been built anew since the last time the property changed hands in 2014 for $2,655,000.
“You are immediately struck by floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that open seamlessly to your completely private tropical resortlike yard, sparkling pool, and striking guesthouse,” says Michael Orland, who is co-listing the property with Dorothy Carter, both of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “A seamless blend of midcentury esthetics and tropical modernism in this new build encompasses an indoor-outdoor screening room, private office, and primary bedroom on its own floor, along with a viewing deck perfect for entertaining.”

There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms in total, including the sleeping quarters in the large guesthouse, which also serves as an entertainment room. It has a built-in bar, a steam shower in the bathroom, and a temperature-controlled wine room. On second thoughts, perhaps only your most trusted guests should have access to that.
All the materials used in the home are superluxe, from the limestone flooring to the onyx skylights.
The new-concept kitchen features gleaming Carrara marble countertops, with (what else?) custom marble cabinetry. The appliances? They’re Sub-Zero and Miele, of course.
Other elegant features include a screening room, a balcony with an outdoor shower, and a rooftop entertainment deck with sweeping views of the city.
Outside are a pool and spa, and—get this!—an almost life-sized chessboard. Chess pieces come with the house.
“Since the pandemic, we have noticed a shift towards embracing and living the California lifestyle,” says Carter. “We want our homes to be true blends of daily living combined with our workspace and vacation getaways. This home seamlessly delivers on every level. As the gates close behind you, you are transported into a living experience rarely seen in the middle of the city.”
