Gated with a circular drive and stately in presence, this lower Benedict Canyon Drive Southern Colonial is designer-done throughout with timeless and tasteful traditional elements. In Beverly Hills Proper, this homeowner will enjoy all Beverly Hills city services including its coveted school system.  In pristine condition, this elegant home has a flawless floorplan geared toward the way we live today and is enhanced by traditional details like wainscoting, beveled glass windows & wall panels, crown molding, ceiling embellishments & trim.

An entertainer’s dream, all of the public rooms are all grandly scaled and flow easily from a two-story formal entry. High ceilings & tall windows provide an abundance of natural light. The gorgeous formal living room with its focal fireplace adjoins the library, opening graciously to the backyard spaces via French doors. Also opening out to the back are the stylish formal dining room and the enormous, comfortably casual, family room with its professional-feeling bar and warming fireplace.

Chefs will feel right at home in the large, center-island kitchen and informal dining area with its custom cabinetry, stunning marble counters, multiple built-ins, top-of-the-line appliances, cook’s pantry & much more.  A housekeeper’s suite, laundry room and an additional bath servicing the pool completes the first floor.

Up a dramatic, wide-sweeping staircase, there are five bedrooms upstairs including the master retreat which enjoys its own, unusually spacious wing. The master has a vast sitting area with a fireplace and a relaxing private veranda overlooking the magnificent backyard grounds and pool. The spa-like master bath, with its over-sized shower and soaking tub, is also large-scale and features fabulous closet space. The four additional upstairs bedrooms are lovely and spacious, each with large closet space.

The giant backyard is truly a beautiful & tranquil haven with its mature landscape adding color, warmth and privacy to its several al fresco entertaining spaces, perfect for sunning poolside, dining under the stars, relaxing in the spa or enjoying friends and family on one of the lovely patio spaces.

Direct access to the three-car garage.
