Located high up in the Beverly Hills, above Sunset Boulevard, Sierra Towers, and the Greystone Estate, 1240 Loma Vista Drive imbues this characteristically Southern California setting with a tranquil, Balinese twist; this is a transcendent space for the kombucha drinking, yogalates set complete with heavy wooden gates to keep the bad vibes at bay. Yet, once past these imposing entryways, a lush, yet minimalist, multileveled and layered courtyard welcome you into the bosom of this sprawling single level home. A checkerboard of sod and concrete provides a foundation for fountains, an intimate sunken seating area, and walls of glass, which blur the reality between inside and out—one of the most defining features of any California home.
Upon entering the home itself, past the invisible glass walls, vast, interconnected rooms splay themselves out before you: living rooms, media rooms, family rooms, the dining room, and kitchen each easily intersect with one another, facilitating casually elegant occasions ranging from intmiate Sunday night movie sessions or CBD infused cooking lessons with a private chef to lavish, locally sourced dinner parties, this home has the space and place for it all. The sheer amount of wood and glass alone, both at once elemental and decorative, provide the perfect balance of form and function, a theme which runs throughout the public and private spaces of the home.
After passing through the massive entertaining spaces, down one of the numerous glass-enclosed hallways, you are permitted access to the bedrooms and family spaces of the home. Here, the same wooden, glass, and stone elements first revealed in the courtyard, and carried through into the public spaces, are repurposed to create friendly, individualized chambers, each with unique views, beams, and bathrooms. The stonework first seen in the courtyard fountain is carried through each space with satisfyingly distinct design work and skill.
These pebbles continue their decorative motif in the backyard’s exterior pool and spa, coating the multiple levels of the yard with weathered black and white stones, enabling an almost seaside atmosphere high above the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Here, hedging and palm trees frame the jet liner views and sparkling, enticing lights below, yet, as the owner, you will always know the most alluring of spaces will always be your own personal Balinese escape in Beverly Hills, a space where you can achieve balance through astrology and Ayurveda.
The rambling floor plan allows for a unique juxtaposition of casual formality, of ancient wisdom with modern angles, conveniences, and sensibilities.
1240 Loma Vista Drive encompasses 7 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms within roughly 6,000 square feet on a roughly 22,550 square foot lot. The home is currently listed by Markus Canter of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California for $12,995,000.
