This chic modern hideaway in the hills of Laurel Canyon packs loads of style and function into its three-bedroom, three-bath perch, where every main-level space enjoys drop-dead views across Hollywood to the skyscrapers downtown.
Vaulted ceilings soar over an open interior that spans the living room, dining area and kitchen, while exposed beams and wide-plank flooring lend warmth and character. On one end, floor-to-ceiling built-ins flank a gas fireplace framed in clean white brick topped with a wood mantelpiece. The other end encloses a magazine-worthy modern kitchen, where dark-blue cabinetry with brass hardware pops against the white countertops and backsplash. Avid cooks will appreciate the state-of-the-art six-burner range, wine fridge and buffet-ready island.
But the real story lies outside. The house branches outward into two wings that enclose a dining courtyard accessible through glass doors that open completely to make the main living area one with the outdoors. A wide, two-level deck extends further out, providing money-shot sightlines. And what’s truly rare for Laurel Canyon homes is the property’s flat, expansive lawn that’s accessible from a stairway that leads down from the deck. All of these spaces provide multiple opportunities for living, lounging, dining, soaking in the hot tub, or sitting around the fire pit.
The home makes the most of its outdoor living, providing direct access to the deck (and views) through French doors in the master suite and a second bedroom/office/den, while a guest suite on the lower level enjoys its own entrance off a private covered deck.
Safety is also part of the mix: The house is equipped with programmable Nest climate control, a wifi-enabled gate lock, and an ADT security system. Come see this hidden hillside gem for yourself, and you’re sure to fall in love.
