Warm and Elegant, a Property Surrounded by Vast Views of Breathtaking Scenery Is a Peaceful and Stylish Refuge
“The drive from Sunset to 4021 Mandeville is therapeutic,” says agent Nikki Magliarditi at Compass. “As soon as you make the turn, the curves of Mandeville Canyon rock you into a calm that takes away all of the day’s stress. Once you step into the front door, this feeling only intensifies.”
“Before making any improvements, we lived in the house for several months to understand its character,” the homeowner confesses.
“Prior to us, only one family had lived in the house since it was designed and constructed—over 40 years! We wanted to celebrate the architecture while better integrating the living experience with the structure’s surroundings.”
Inside, Benjamin Moore Simply White walls combine with warm leathers, honey-toned white oak hardwood floors, exposed beams, and natural textiles in California-cool style. Occasional black accents and contemporary art with minimal splashes of color create contrast while some Moroccan carpets and Balinese lamps add exotic touches throughout.
The living room has soaring 20-foot-high ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling rustic log wall, and an open floor plan. The kitchen offers access to the redwood decking, which extends to the grassy yard, pool and spa, and terraced garden.
“We maintained over 40 fruiting plants, added turf leading up to the pool, irrigated vegetable cabinets, planted native plants and wildflowers, and added hiking trails to over half an acre of fenced hillside,” the homeowner says.
All four bedrooms open to outdoor spaces and provide canyon views, including the large master suite. In addition to the garage with ample space for two cars and storage, the 800-square-foot lower level can be used as an in-home studio, gym, or art studio.
Currently on the market for $3,695,000, “it is the perfect blend of privacy and seclusion, the epitome of California lifestyle,” according to agent Cindy Ambuehl of the Cindy Ambuehl Group at Compass.
