“Sexy, functional and fun” is how listing agent Ben Bacal of Rodeo Realty describes this one-of-a-kind, Alex Pettas-designed property at 1172 N. Doheny Drive, nestled behind black obsidian gates in the exclusive Lower Bird Streets of Hollywood Hills. What exactly leads to such a bold statement? Perhaps it’s the modern, Vanina Alfaro-designed living space highlighted by an abundance of light, water, glass, Italian stone, cedar and European oak flooring throughout.
Or maybe it’s one of the eye-catching features—like the biometric, oversized door that opens to a cascading infinity-edge pool and bonsai trees; soaring great room with disappearing glass doors and floor-to-ceiling Italian marble fireplace; and decadent master suite with its own living room and designer showroom closet.
But no doubt it all hinges upon the ultimate highlight: a 1,000-square-foot rooftop deck with a built-in bar and Jacuzzi that is, Bacal says, simply “off-the-charts cool.”
