The Sunset View Home

Perched above the famed Château Marmont Hotel, 8366 Sunset View Drive — appropriately nicknamed The Sunset View Home — radiates vibes of old Hollywood and true glamour.

Large windows, walls of glass and retract- able doors highlight city views in every direction — whether sitting on the sofa, enjoying a workout, or taking a shower. “The location is all about the views,” says designer Tim Campbell. “The site and the location of the property shaped the home’s design in every way. The orientation of the house was specifically organized so that as many rooms as possible have great views.”

“The magnificent, jetliner views allow your mind and your energy to soar as you look over miles and miles of L.A.,” agrees listing agent Steve Frankel of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Beverly Hills North.

In addition to its unbelievable location, Campbell credits much of the Triwest Development home’s beauty to its thoughtfully organized floor plan. “The home has great flow, which is unusual for homes in the hillside,” he says. The spaciousness of the home allows for entertaining, “but the rooms aren’t so large that you get lost in them. They main- tain a sense of intimacy,” Campbell adds. “There is a timelessness and warmth to the house that you don’t see in a lot of modern homes.”

The artfully designed home, which Frankel calls “sophisticated, modern and unique,” weaves classic mid-century design with cutting-edge craftsmanship. An artful blend of terrazzo, antique brass, wood and natural stones give the home a “sexy” feel, according to Campbell, who  argues the home exudes a James Bond vibe..

The home is situated within the “heart of the exciting Sunset Strip,” Frankel says. “Within min- utes, everything you could want is before you” — enjoy fine dining in Sunset Plaza, indulge among friends at Soho House, or visit one of the many museums on Sunset Strip.

When the bustle of the city becomes too much, enjoy the courtyard garden, which serves as “a quiet area that allows you to get away from the drama of the view and the city beyond,” Campbell says, noting that the home is exceptionally private. Other features include a lounge with a bar, movie theater, gym, sauna, elevator, large motor court and 3-car garage. In addition to a sensational master suite, the home includes four bedroom suites — making the home perfect for any family. “This house attracts a wide audience, from a high-network single or couple to a family with small children,” Frankel says.

This brand-new home is ideal “for a discerning buyer who wants a luxurious property that is beautiful yet fun,” Frankel says. “I hope the buyer will walk through the door and think ‘I’m home.’ They should feel proud to have bought this home, knowing it will stand the test of time.”
