In World-class Beverly Hills Enclave Trousdale Estates, This Architectural Masterpiece Was Created by Michael Chen From Luxford Group in Collaboration With Saota
“The idea was to introduce a house that incorporated my life journey and many of its memorable moments,” says Michael Chen, executive director of the Asia-Pacific Division of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass, and founder of Luxford Investment Group, co-listing the property with Aaron Kirman and Adam Rosenfeld.
“The cascading waterfall was inspired by my trip to Big Sur, the open atrium…and the imported 150-year-old ancient olive tree by my coming of age in Italy and love of its natural beauty. I have always envisioned this house would be architecturally grand with striking features and we’ve accomplished that through the use of the cantilever structure of the house.”
After a six-year development, 1108 Wallace Ridge, Beverly Hills an 18,000-square-foot house in Trousdale Estates—offered at $65,000,000 or Bitcoin equivalent—is a true gem where California modernism and contemporary ultra-luxe meet. Inspired by the elements of life and how they all work together, the project’s name is Elementi.
“I wanted a holistic harmonious atmosphere that represented the merging of the natural and man-made worlds,” Michael Chen says. “While we have a lot of marble in this house, we complement it with quality wood finishes.”
The earthy colors contribute to highlight the pristine surrounding nature while giving the feeling of warmth and comfort throughout. The floating marble bridge-like entrance leading to a towering front door that reveals panoramic views of Century City and the Pacific Ocean, the spectacular master quarter that cantilevers over the balcony, the Venetian plastered spiral staircase providing access to the daylight basement, the 2,000 bottle wine cellar and the half-length Olympic size swimming lane integrated into the pool are some of the many elements that make this seven-bedroom house truly unique.
“We were able to create an environment that merged the traditional ideas of indoors and outdoors into one,” Michael Chen says. “It is natural West Coast luxury as it should be.”
