Inside a Contemporary Masterwork in Beverly Hills

Beyond this home’s façade of striking contemporary lines and bold geometric angles, a path at the center of a landscape pool creates the uncommon sense of walking on water as it leads past thriving bamboo and fountains to the entrance. This feeling of otherworldliness and serenity is fitting for a residence that was designed for health and wellness and that communes with its natural surroundings thanks to walls of glass that all but disappear, blurring the line between indoors and out and admitting floods of natural light.

Throughout, glass, metal, tile, blonde hardwoods, and stone create dynamic contrast and visual appeal, while window walls conjure a sense of volume, openness, and light. The main level consists of fluid living, dining, and kitchen areas opening directly to alluring patio space. A warming fireplace is set in wall of custom tile in the living area, while the airy and bright kitchen has streamlined cabinetry, professional-caliber appliances, and an island that seats four. The handsome dining space is enclosed by windows and a unique temperature-controlled wine storage and display room.

From the main floor, a staircase with floating treads spirals to the lower level. Designed for private relaxed enjoyment, this retreat includes a family room—skylit from above—a juice bar, and an adjoining sound-proof screening and game room with a projector and mirrored pocket doors. Beyond are a steam room and sauna, a secluded fitness room, and a peaceful spa and massage room with a tub.

A wide, stately stairway parades from the living spaces to the upper level, which is occupied entirely by the voluminous master suite. This secluded sanctuary features its own balcony, two impressive walk-in closets with three-way mirrors, and a private living area with a fireplace and a bar. The pièce de résistance is the extraordinary bath, which offers a glass-enclosed “wet room” shower and sculptural tubs indoors and out. The suite’s atrium-like office is enveloped by a Zen-inspired meditation garden courtyard.

Furthering the home’s emphasis on its environs are the inviting outdoor spaces, including a chic central covered patio with a gas fire pit. Embraced by lush greenery, mature landscaping, and the hillside is a sunny patio with an alfresco kitchen and pizza oven. Steps away, on the verge of the hillside, is the sparkling infinity pool and spa, whose waters appear to cascade into the trees. The rooftop is a space for unique diversion and engagement, with a meditation labyrinth, a cabana for lounging, and other open areas for reveling in inspirational canyon vistas. Private, walled, and gated this one-of-a-kind oasis is also equipped with an array of state-of-the-art high-tech amenities.
