Numerous factors converge to make this European-style estate the crown jewel of the Beverly Hills Flats: Think an outstanding realization of concept and design, complete with awe-inspiring interiors, breathtaking grounds punctuated by olive trees, lavender and Old-World gardens, and unrivaled views of the Los Angeles Country Club and Century City amid a peaceful and private setting.
“This home is on arguably the best street in Beverly Hills and the Flats, and one of only eight homes on the L.A. Country Club golf course,” says Jon Grauman, who is co-listing the residence at 837 Greenway Drive with Mauricio Umansky, both of The Agency, for $33 million. “It also has the widest frontage of any home in the Beverly Hills Flats.”
Set behind gates on almost an acre of flat land that opens up to the 9th green of the golf course, the seven-bedroom abode features more than 10,000 square feet of contemporary, Erinn Valencich-designed living space on two levels, replete with mid-century-style touches, from suede and chrome doors to high-gloss, wood grain cabinetry.
Among the highlights: a marble foyer with a striking, sculptural staircase that leads to a light-filled living room with wide-plank hardwood flooring, fashionable LED-lit ceiling, fireplace, white marble bar, and steel-and-glass French doors that open to reveal a loggia and gardens boasting water and fire features.
Yet other refinements include a formal dining room with a glass-enclosed, temperature-controlled wine room; chef’s kitchen sporting a spacious marble island and Miele appliances; circular master retreat featuring dual marble baths and custom showroom closets; a billiards room with fireplace; plush theater; and auto gallery.
Finally is a guesthouse and lushly landscaped, made-to-entertain grounds featuring a floating, infinity-edge pool, spa, fire pit and cabana with outdoor kitchen. The end result? Eye-catching charisma and a sublime perspective on Southern California living in one of the country’s most prestigious ZIP codes.
