Covered in natural cedar wood, the exterior of the home sets the tone for the organically curated interior. The home initially appears modern yet still warm and inviting. An expansive atrium welcomes guests into an airy, sunlit space boasting uninterrupted city vistas.
The generously sized living room, kitchen, and dining room harmoniously integrate to facilitate easy living and entertaining, with each area carefully arranged to maximize the natural light.
The step-down living room is complete with a custom fireplace. For additional visual interest, the ledge is accented by a vibrant green mosaic from Cle tile. This space allows access to an expansive porch with a brand-new custom bar. The bar also includes a cloud antique mirror backsplash.
The kitchen stands as a work of art, seamlessly blending aesthetics, design, and functionality. It showcases Belgian reproduction terracotta clay floor tiles from Cle Tile and custom white oak cabinets for contrast. The countertop, backsplash, and sinks are all made of honed Quartzite Nero stone for visual cohesion. The cooking space is complete with top-of-the-line Gaggenau and Wolf appliances.
On the second floor, there is a master bedroom and two additional guest rooms. The primary sleeping space is a relaxing respite with an abundance of natural light from the south and east-facing windows. A private balcony adds to the indoor-outdoor atmosphere. The master bed is flanked by two closets custom outfitted with white oak cabinetry and shelving. The en-suite bathroom exudes a spa-like ambiance, featuring a freestanding soaking tub, a honed jade Quartzite vanity, and a rain shower adorned with exquisite zellige tiles from Zia Tile.
The second-floor bedrooms offer picturesque views of the city, hillside, and lush green foliage. These bedrooms share access to a meticulously designed bathroom, adorned with plastered walls, a solid marble vanity, and a spacious custom soaking tub.
A bright and welcoming family space occupies the third area of the home. It comes complete with expansive exterior patios, a kitchenette featuring a bar for entertaining, and a designer powder room. The space is enhanced by Portuguese stone cork walls and a custom honed vanity made of Calacatta Viola marble. This space stands out as one of the most playful and visually captivating rooms in the entire home.
Accessed from the family and bar area, the yard unfolds with carefully planned spaces, featuring amenities such as a Japanese soaking tub and outdoor shower. Additionally, the yard boasts terraced, grassy areas, creating an ideal setting for a game of bocce ball or a space for gathering friends. Every corner of this home has been designed with top-tier finishes and amenities. It is a prime example of how the right design team can completely transform a luxury residence.
