West Hollywood -N orlando ave
This one-of-a-kind West Hollywood compound on N Orlando Ave offers a rare and coveted duality of experiences: the peace and tranquility of your own secret, oasis-like hideaway with the luxury of being situated in the heart of L.A.’s most vibrant, cosmopolitan neighborhood.
Hidden behind ficus hedges, salvaged wood gates on either side of an expansive motor court lead to four exceptional structures, each arranged to flow seamlessly from one to the next, and finished with smooth adobe plaster and triple-stacked tile roofs that evoke a quintessentially Californian spirit.
To one side, a serene entrance courtyard, crowned by a mature sycamore tree and meditation fountain, leads to a charming, two-story French country cottage with stone walls and barrel vault ceilings. On the opposite side, a grassy yard with a vegetable garden opens to the heart of the home; a soaring, two-story living space replete with towering cathedral ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors and salvaged wood beams. A sophisticated chef’s kitchen features an eat-in, carrara marble slab island, Sub-Zero refrigerators and copper accents, while a gently undulating staircase with custom brass handrails leads to a voluminous bedroom suite with a Spanish balcony overlooking the grounds below.
Perfectly conceived for the Southern California lifestyle, the residence fosters a harmonious indoor-outdoor flow throughout, with airy breezeways and tranquil, open-air spaces assuming the role of traditional hallways, infusing the living experience with the romance of the grounds that surround. Custom steel-framed glass doors blur the distinction between inside and out, while an airy walkway provides access to the phenomenal master suite, replete with dual showroom closets and an elegant bathroom with a copper soaking tub and oversized shower that opens to a tranquil meditation fountain.
A 1920s-inspired fitness center showcases frosted glass mirrors, antique stadium seating and a period-appropriate bathroom with subway tile, while a plush lower level boasts a state-of-the-art, Moroccan-influenced theatre, complete with an unprecedented, restaurant-caliber bar and lounge. A voluminous upper level is perfectly conceived for a guest suite, office or creative space, with a large terrace overlooking the Hollywood Hills in the distance. Seamlessly connected to the pool and grounds through a series of open archways is a luxury cabana, game room and fully-equipped guest house.
