A wave of new construction in the bird streets of Los Angeles — one of the city’s most exclusive and sought-after enclaves — has produced a trove of architectural masterpieces that both delight and inspire. Take this contemporary masterpiece perched atop exclusive Oriole Way as an example.
Newly listed by Patti Waltcher of Coldwell Banker Property Shoppe for $29 million, the 12,530 square-foot residence takes full advantage of its birds nest setting above Beverly Hills — a location that’s only minutes from famed Rodeo Drive and the Sunset Strip. Expansive views span the entire L.A. skyline, and stretch all the way to to the Pacific Ocean.Unparalleled luxury, both inside and out, is expressed through a modernist-inspired palette.
Retractable exterior glass walls merge the indoors with the outdoors in seamless artistry. It’s the kind of home you expect to see in architectural books, paying homage to the California lifestyle.
Built with no expense spared, the home boasts the finest materials and state-of-the-art smart home technology available today. Art collectors will find it a perfect refuge, given its ample wall space and gallery-like interiors. Wine collectors will appreciate the wine cellar for holding and preserving their most prized bottles. Auto aficionados will enjoy the enormous subterranean garage for storing and displaying their automotive treasures. Serious entertainers will appreciate the thoughtful attention to space planning and lifestyle-oriented flow.
A large and open great room and kitchen is anchored by a large statement-making marble island. Many of the entertaining spaces — from the living room and lounge areas to the elegant dining area — open to the outdoors for indoor/outdoor living. A state-of-the-art movie theater provides yet another opportunity for entertaining family and friends.
Five sumptuous bedrooms offer the ultimate in privacy, including a show-stopping 2,000 square-foot master suite with a large walk-in closet, spa-like bath and dramatic walls of glass that open onto a view deck.
Beyond the interiors, the outdoor spaces have been thoughtfully designed for modern lifestyles. Surrounded by lush landscaping, there is a full outdoor kitchen, fire pits and a salt water infinity pool that hovers above the entire city in pure cinematic fashion. (Is it a surprise that such a visual dream makes is set in the film capital of the world?) Meant to be a true retreat that you never have to leave, the property also counts a spa and gym among its amenities.
