9318 Nightingale Drive ≫ This architectural masterpiece high atop L.A.’s Bird Streets checks all the boxes for timeless, sophisticated living
[cs_dropcap column_size=”1/1″ dropcap_style=”box” dropcap_size=”0″ dropcap_color=”#fff” dropcap_bg_color=”#d7df21″]The locale of this award-winning, contemporary home hints at its ethereal appeal. Situated at 9318 Nightingale Drive—in the coveted Bird Streets of Hollywood Hills—the concept and design offer an alluring, high-quality tone. Think a museum-quality exterior sporting custom Swisspearl cement panels and geometric-style louvres paired with chic yet inviting interiors punctuated by soaring walls of glass that allow for sweeping city and ocean views.[/cs_dropcap]
“My vision was to create an architecturally significant home that would withstand the test of time, both aesthetically and in its performance,” says L.A. developer Mauricio Oberfeld, who built the house in 2010 to serve as his family’s residence. “I didn’t want it ever to be thought about as a house of a specific era, and instead to be looked at as timeless.”
Now on the market for $29.95 million—co-listed by Mauricio Umansky and Alejandro Aldrete of The Agency—the property features 9,000 square feet of Zoltan E. Pali-designed living space showcasing seamless indoor-outdoor environs, Austrian-textured wood flooring, and stone- and wood-paneled walls.
Among the standout features is a glass-enclosed master suite equipped with electronic shades and sliding glass doors that open to a spacious terrace; custom-fabricated Italian kitchen by Del Tongo; temperature-controlled wine cellar; tiered movie theater with a 13-foot screen; and spa with a sauna, steam and massage room.
Amid the expansive grounds designed by renowned landscape architect Andrea Cochran, an abundance of Italian silver travertine terraces flow to a grassy lawn, 70-foot, infinity-edge pool and Jacuzzi.
