Property Description

The magic and charm that is Mt. Washington is exemplified by this sophisticated home: hip, smart, private, with views that inspire and restore. Walk by the large decorative fountain to the front entrance with security gate and keyless entry. Inside, this multi level home begins in the marble floor foyer with a unique atrium straight ahead made of natural wood siding and glass ceiling. Down a few steps is the dining area with contemporary pendant. Glass partitions on two sides, a mirrored wall on another side and a large window on the fourth wall give the illusion that the room is floating above the living room below. The adjacent kitchen features white ceramic tile floor, contemporary cabinets, salt and pepper Corian counters, built-in wine rack, vegetable sink, recessed lights, under cabinet lighting, custom window treatments, pendant ceiling lights, and plenty of pantry cabinets. Walk down the marble steps from the dining area to the grand living room with exposed wood beams on the vaulted ceiling and two sliding glass doors spanning the wall and leading out to the private deck with views to Griffith Observatory.

Next to the soaring atrium with pyramid skylight is the first master bedroom suite with bay window, large bathroom with two sinks, custom framed mirrors, new pendant lighting, vanity, stand alone shower, tub and walk-in closet. Finally a third master suite is on the lowest level with another bay window, full bathroom and walk-in closet. Just around the corner is a large laundry room with storage cabinets and easy access entrance to under the home.

On the other side of the foyer with built in planter boxes and mirrored closets is a palatial master bedroom with soaring ceiling, bay window sitting area, huge marble bathroom with skylights, separate sinks, elegant framed mirrors, new pendants lighting, vanity, spa tub, stand alone shower, bidet and toilet. Through the bathroom is the sizable walk-in closet with skylights. Also off the hallway is another bedroom and a full bathroom with new fixtures and flooring.

Step outside onto three levels of decks and enjoy the spectacular views. The first level is outside the living room and features a retractable awning. The second has a gazebo with 6-person hot tub and BBQ area. The third is a huge 1,500 square foot deck, perfect for large gatherings, providing a complete panoramic view to the north and west. Beside these decks are terraced garden beds within a fully fenced back yard. In front of the house is a 2 car detached garage that is extra wide and has built-in cabinets. The house offers a whole house security system, gutters, marble floors and dual zone ac/heat. It is within easy commuting distance to Los Angeles and surrounding areas and walking distance to award winning Mt. Washington Elementary School. This spacious, contemporary home combines the benefits of a peaceful retreat with the convenience of an urban location.
