We sat down with listing agent Shelley Maslan for a discussion of this unique home.
H & H: Please elaborate on feedback you’ve received from prospective buyers?
SM: Everyone who has viewed it has said, hands down, it is one of the finest properties, quality-wise, attention to detail, the quality of the finishes, everything, they have seen. The flow of the house is truly second-to-none. It’s a Contemporary but with a very warm, inviting feeling. Being steps from the Wallis Annenberg Center, and a few blocks from the exquisite dining on Canon Row are key benefits to the exceptional location here.
H & H: Would you say this home has equal parts discretion and accessibility?
SM: If somebody likes city living in the middle of Beverly Hills, the home is conveniently located two blocks from Rodeo Drive. If someone prefers discretion and privacy, the unique facet here is that it has incredible discretion, exceptional privacy. When the hedges in the front of the home grow, you won’t even be able to see the house from the road – providing the ultimate in terms of privacy and discretion. It’s video-enabled, gated, the true home for someone who wants full access to the wonderful city of Beverly Hills without being front and center in terms of the hustle and bustle.
H & H: Can you tell me about some of the technology at the home?
SM: Technology-wise, it has both neutron and lutron systems; fully-automated, the shades, the blackouts in all of the bedrooms. The skylights on the second floor all have blackout systems, capitalizing on the unique usages of technology here.
H & H: When was the home built?
SM: The home was finished in December of 2013, but the current owner didn’t move in until the summer of 2014. The home was built from a blank slate – it had been scraped, so this is effectively as modern as it gets, retaining some of this timeless style.
H & H: Would you say this is a family home, or built more for someone to live alone, meant for entertaining?
SM: It straddles that line, in a perfect way. A family currently lives there – the kids are away at school – but this is truly the quintessential family home; three bedrooms upstairs, guest and housekeepers on the main floor, and a lower level suite with laundry, kitchenette, and bathroom.
H & H: Does the home have a backyard, and is it well poised for entertaining?
SM: The backyard here is fabulous. It’s tremendously well laid out. There’s a conversation area with a fire pit. There’s a large pool with a sauna; barbeque area, radiant heat throughout.
H & H: Thank you very much, Shelley.
