Distinct, Personal and Timeless, This Impressive Bel-air Home Offers a Rarified Backdrop Ideally Suited to Family Living and Entertaining
Visualize a pristine East Coast traditional-style estate resting on a prime parcel of land in the posh Bel-Air, where a duo of stately entrance gates off of Sunset Boulevard leads to meandering thoroughfares lined with lavish mansions on spacious, lushly landscaped lots.
Add to that some eye-catching design elements paired with seamless indoor/outdoor environs, plus all of the requisite bells and whistles, and this property offers a blend of qualities almost impossible to uncover in one single locale.
“It’s really hard to find a home that has it all,” says Cindy Ambuehl of Compass, who is listing the residence for $10.5 million. Listen to Cindy Ambuehl’s podcast episode where she takes us through getting her start in real estate.
“It carries a phenomenal family floor plan, making nothing about its new construction cookie-cutter. These sellers went the distance hiring one of L.A.’s top designers to create an elegant, sophisticated and functional space. The home’s look is traditional, with the emotion of an upscale luxury design. With no neighboring homes across the street or behind you, you truly feel like the only one on the block.”
Adding to this home’s extraordinary family appeal is its setting just minutes from the Hotel Bel-Air, Bel-Air Country Club, The Glen Centre, Getty Center, numerous biking and hiking trails, and Beverly Hills’ upscale dining and shopping establishments. Also nearby: some of the most desirable schools in all of Southern California, including top-ranked Roscomare Road Elementary School, Marymount High School and Harvard-Westlake School.
It holds 8,200 square feet of contemporary yet vintage living space on two levels, complete with show-stopping finishes, including quartzite, marble and onyx stone throughout, as well as soaring 20-foot ceilings and exquisite lighting. Among the highlights is a state-of-the-art home theater, game room, gym, dining room with temperature-controlled wine closet and parlor room.
Yet other attributes: a family room with fireplace that opens to a professional chef’s kitchen boasting high-end appliances and dual islands, along with a glamorous master suite outfitted with a towering vaulted ceiling, cozy fireside seating area, and relaxing spa-inspired bath equipped with a sizable walk-in shower and the ultimate soaking tub.
Finally, the spacious park-like grounds are excellent for entertaining with a barbecue/lounge area, fireplace, zero-edge infinity pool and spa flanked by a beautiful long patio, and a duo of two-car garages.
“Living here is a family and entertainer’s dream,” says Cindy Ambuehl.
“Whether you’re cooking and entertaining in your gourmet kitchen or lounging outdoors by the pool, the luxury of this home is elevated to the extreme. Living in Bel Air with a large, flat yard perfect for the kids to play or the dogs to run also is rare and most ideal to homeowners. There is no reason to ever leave.”
