An Ultra-secure Penthouse at the Wilshire House, a Full-service Luxury High-rise in a Prized Los Angeles Locale, Goes Above and Beyond
Safe rooms are so passe. Especially in the face of this virtually impenetrable penthouse at the Wilshire House. Constructed as a “safe house,” complete with bombproof doors (the only ones installed in a residential application in California).
“The convenience and safety of living in a penthouse has become more of a desire for buyers now more than ever before,” notes Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates, who is listing the property with Branden Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates and Nousha Hagenbuch of Sotheby’s International Realty for $17,995,000.
“This building offers safety, health, and wellness, as there is an air-purifying system even in the elevators…not to mention 7,000 square feet that make you feel you’re in your very own home. It is truly a luxurious home in the sky.”
Nousha Hagenbuch’s summation? “An incredibly special place,” from its exquisite finishes to the scale and layout. “Sky-high living at its finest.”
The result of two units reconceived as one contemporary home, the five-bedroom, seven-bath penthouse is the largest in the Victor Gruen-designed building. Handsome and classy, there are stupendous views from every room and balconies and terraces surrounding the unit. Inside is, among other accouterments, a generous living room, formal dining room, two fireplaces, and a snazzy 3,000-bottle wine cellar.
Italian custom closets, Stark Carpets, old-growth Bavarian oak floors, and Lalique hardware lend the penthouse a European pedigree, but with ceilings that soar to 10 feet high, and access to the many assets of its designer building (a tennis court, pool, and fitness center included), it’s L.A. all the way.
