Sophisticated Staycation

Enjoy a permanent vacation at this new ultra-chic showpiece in Bel-Air

Written by Wendy Bowman

Feel like taking the ultimate resort-style sabbatical, where entertaining and relaxation are top of mind—without ever leaving your personal abode? This new, chic, ultra-modern, farmhouse-style estate fits the bill both inside and out, complete with a 43,855-square-foot lot boasting a massive pool, spa and Baja shelf feature with color-changing LED lights, a custom pub room sporting a 200-bottle wine wall and duo of big-screen TVs, and much more.

“I love the developer’s playful use of modern and farmhouse, with a grand open floorplan that’s ahead of the design curve,” says Aaron Kirman of John Aaroe Group, who is co-listing the property with Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland, for $12.5 million. “It’s perfect for a single person or a family, because it’s ultra-private yet still very accessible to all that Los Angeles has to offer.”

Situated amid a private and serene setting at 1281 Stone Canyon Road—in an exclusive neighborhood within lower Bel-Air—the attractive white brick, six-bedroom home was designed by architect Steve Wunderlich of 4C Design Group and built by developer Justin Barth of Barth Partners. Featured within is more than 9,000 square feet of glamorous custom Hancock Design-crafted living space on two levels highlighted by rich hardwood flooring and designer lighting throughout. A grand entry features a double staircase that ascends to the top floor, which contains the guest bedrooms and a loft master suite including a fireplace, balcony, spacious walk-in closet, and spa-like bath with a soaking tub and stylish Brizo fixtures.

Yet other standout attributes of the property include an iPad-controlled smart-home system that operates climate, security, music and lights, as well as seamless indoor-outdoor living from the family room, living room, kitchen and pub room via fully retractable floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to reveal a private, expansive backyard. There, one finds a long rectangular pool, spa, barbecue and patio with fire pit—all boasting eye-catching mountain and canyon views. An added bonus: all of the furniture—as well as an extensive holding of artwork by artist Marcello Pozzi—can be included with the sale.
