BOLD CONTEMPORARY ESTATE in PRIME BEVERLY HILLS
Bold and powerful in design and presence but warm and nurturing at its core: the art of fine architecture lives here at 1148 Laurel Way. Graced by uncommonly large, private, verdant grounds, this gated estate home, just over ten years old, was designed by Moises Becker with both form and function in mind.
The main level has as its centerpiece a magnificent living room overlooking the large yard and sparkling pool, a very special den or media room, a marvelous open kitchen with adjacent family room and an over-sized formal dining room. Designed with an eye on bringing the outside in, every room takes in an interesting view; some have terraces or patios from which to behold the sylvan setting, another a tranquil reflecting pool creating a Zen-like backdrop. Tall doors and plate glass are everywhere making the seam between house and garden harmoniously fluid. There are many moods here and they change by night and by day. Whatever the mood, whenever…they're all calming and exciting in the same moment.
Up a stunning staircase (or via elevator) to the second level, find a lavish master with sitting room, sumptuous bath with expansive dual walk-in closets and dressing rooms. There are three additional bedroom suites with baths making this special home function well for a family as well as for a couple or single. A unique and peaceful sun deck overlooks the lush estate grounds.
There are staff quarters, plenty of parking on or off street and the location can not be beat; it feels a million miles away but is actually just moments above Sunset Boulevard in Prime Beverly Hills. Coveted school system, as well.
