Located in Southern California, the Beverly Grove home constructed by Whipple Russell Architecture is an ode to living large. Four bedroom and six bathrooms are designed to accommodate the rich and famous of Hollywood Hills at play. Built on a severe up-slope, the hillside property boasts 8,500 square feet of living area with generous outdoor entertaining space. The stark contemporary shapes and glass walls of this structure offer far and spectacular views in both directions. A work of art, the swank modish structure recently sold for $9,000,000, and it looks like it is worth every penny to the right buyer. The residence is bedecked with imported Jerusalem stones held up by mahogany walls. Interior walls are frequently glass, though many are stone. Flooring throughout is polished basaltic stone. Balconies, patios, and roof top decking ensure access to secluded sun worship or sheltered social pleasures.
Iridescent recessed lighting plays well against the natural stone interior walls, with minimalist décor and glass dividers to preserve the open space.
The multilevel home is easily traversed by way of various artful staircases, including this suspended stair of natural wood supported by steel going up, with wood for the banisters and glass side protection. As it heads downward, the stairway is shielded by natural stone. The high-end flooring throughout the home adds to the elegance of the esthetic.
The great room adjoining the dining room has a fine outside view of the pool and inside access to a mirror television. The warm neutral palette, the low furniture, and the sleek fixtures are pure California chic.
A modest but elegant dining room continues the décor and mood of the great room. It overlooks the lush exterior landscape, and it is distinguished by a witty chandelier over the table.
The large chef’s kitchen boasts three Cesar stone islands, one of which is a breakfast bar. Open-ended serving areas create flexible hosting options. The rectilinear design is picked up by geometric ceiling light fixtures and again, a glass wall brings in the outdoors.
The master bath has a masculine appeal, and showcases spa like qualities. It houses a central system for quick adjustments to any technological feature in the home. Floor-to-ceiling exposures provide for maximum encounters with natural light.
The luxurious low bed atop lush carpeting allows for ease and comfort under a huge flat screen TV at the end of the day. The private deck off the bedroom continues the comfort with grand views of LA and the Pacific Ocean
An entertainer’s dream, the home even showcases a screening room with plenty of raked seating, wall speakers, and audio enhancement.
The rooftop patio and swimming area offers panoramic views and begs for a party under the California potted palms.
This Asian inspired meditation pool with paving stones is an appropriate area for practicing yoga, studying Zen, or just contemplating the beauty and peace of the setting. Day or night, the approach to Beverly Grove is impressive. While Marc’s signature fire bowls do not make an appearance in this project, his team’s design aesthetic is undeniable. Side Note: A detached guesthouse that the architectural team constructed on the property is not pictured here.
