Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Handsomely designed inside and out, this extraordinary rustic contemporary style residence has sweeping 240-degree views across canyons to serene mountainsides. Exquisite landscaping, generous space, and interior design by seven-time Emmy winner Melinda Ritz make this a home of tremendous character and beauty.
At the end of a private drive, the Beverly Hills property was fully renovated eight years ago to take advantage of the spectacular site, both private and convenient. Past the entry fountain, wide archways, high ceilings, exposed beams, and dark-wood floors establish the home’s feeling of substance and style, with large windows opening to the tranquil surroundings, majestic light, and the soothing sound of four waterfalls.
The living room, which opens to the yard and pool, has a fireplace and an expansive wine storage for 1,100 bottles, plus a wet bar. Also downstairs is a spacious, stunning, all-wood library with built-in bookshelves and coffered ceiling. The open, center-island kitchen is illuminated by an amazing ceiling skylight. It has a farmhouse sink and all Viking appliances and has a great-room feeling with its adjacent dining area. There is an additional office/bedroom/gym downstairs.
Up a gracious staircase, with its woven-leather runner, is the master suite and two additional en-suite bedrooms, plus a laundry room. The master, an elegant retreat with a private balcony, has a hand-stamped leather fireplace mantel, and a grand master bath with double-headed steam shower and Jacuzzi tub. There is a large sitting room/study/den with a dramatic metalwork fireplace off the master bedroom.
Outside, lush landscaping surrounds a private yard with three waterfalls, salt water pool and Jacuzzi, deck, outdoor oven, grill, and refrigerator, plus a seating area around a fireplace. There is also a fenced dog run with a dog house.
