Among Southern California’s most sought-after addresses, the Bird Streets in the Doheny Estates of Hollywood Hills are consistently desirable and rarely available. Now there’s a new and impressive offering by Philip Boroda of Coldwell Banker Realty in Sherman Oaks: a turnkey architectural showcase with spectacular city lights and ocean views.
At nearly 11,000 square feet, the estate’s design is inspired by mid-century modern architecture and augmented with up-to-the-minute amenities and luxuries, such as motorized Fleetwood pocket doors, a 20-foot glass atrium, an elevator and a climate-controlled collector’s garage complete with automobile turnstile. Curated finishes highlight every space and include Italian mosaic travertine tiles, Duchateau wood-slat ceilings, designer furnishings and select original artworks.
This is a lifestyle property, from the terraced front gardens and porcelain-tiled pool and spa through the open-plan, light-washed living areas to the wellness spa, putting green and temperature-controlled wine display. The living room, with clerestory windows, a fireplace, soffit lighting and hardwood floors, expands to include the entertainment potential of a wraparound patio, pool and manicured landscaping. The formal dining area opens onto a private pavilion and the adjacent Miele kitchen is suited to the chef/entertainer, with a large waterfall island, an informal dining area and a walk-in pantry.
The primary suite is a private retreat in itself, with a large sitting area, fireplace, clerestory windows, a covered patio, city views and a sumptuous bath. There are three additional en-suite guest bedrooms on the main floor. Downstairs, there is an additional guest suite as well as an office, a luxurious home theater, a billiards room with a bar and a fireplace, plus a 1000-square foot spa complete with sauna, massage room, gym, steam shower and plunge pool.
