Inside a Modern Haven in Hidden Hills

California is known the world over for its glorious temperate climate and striking terrain, and taking advantage of the sunny days, cool nights, plentiful sunshine, and dramatic views has never been easier than at this expansive home on a peaceful cul-de-sac in the coveted gated community of Hidden Hills—renowned for its equestrian facilities and celebrity denizens. Its singular style combines a façade that hints at charming classicism with interiors that are decidedly modern, replete with the clean, sleek lines of contemporary design.

Captivatingly airy and bright, the home measures a generous 8,848 square feet and features six bedrooms, an office, and a four-car garage. Abundant windows admit floods of light and afford varied views that encompass treetops, blue skies, mountains, and city lights. Spaces throughout are effortlessly open and fluid, allowing for gatherings of any size and formality. Natural wide-plank oak floors add touches of organic warmth.

In the formal living area, a welcoming family and game room with a bar, and even main-level bedroom suites, walls of glass retract, blurring the boundary between indoors and out. Just beyond lies the pièce de resistance, a backyard entertainment and recreation complex with a covered alfresco lounge that includes a bar, a grilling area, and a breezy media room. Accompanying it are an open-air patio perfect for games, a sun-soaked pool terrace, and unique spaces for plein air dining. The infinity-edge pool and spa beckon with their refreshing waters and enchanting lapis-blue tile accents.

On the home’s upper level, the owner’s suite is a serene oasis boasting a sitting area with a warming gas fireplace, two impeccably outfitted walk-in closets and dressing rooms, and balcony space thoughtfully railed in glass to allow the vistas to remain uninterrupted. The en suite spa-inspired bath offers both a glass-walled shower and an eye-catching soaking tub, balcony access, and a picturesque view of its own.

Relaxation and recreation happen indoors as well, thanks to the open living, dining, and family areas, a chef’s kitchen with a marble-wrapped island and professional-caliber appliances, and a theater with comfortable carpeting, tiered seating, and a projector. Whole-house sound and security systems complete the compelling picture.

The home is sited on a rare outsize lot, 1.65 enviable acres of established trees, rolling green lawn, and colorful gardens and roses. Past the enveloping trees, the land cascades toward the sparkling city skyline and the mountains beyond.
