Behind a private gated drive lies a spectacular property that embodies the contemporary California lifestyle embracing a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living.
As you approach the Benedict Canyon home, you will see an abundance of mature foliage and beyond that, the red earth of the surrounding hillside. Where most homes hide behind brick and mortar, this home welcomes the natural world with walls and double-entry doors of glass.
On the back side, this glass-walled and light-filled home wraps itself around a center courtyard punctuated by a shimmering in-ground pool and bubbling hot tub. This complete open-air living space features loungers for soaking up the sun and a sheltered al fresco dining table to enjoy a meal with friends in nature.
Inside, the great room is a serenely stylish space, with modern furnishings in a cool gray palette. Recessed lighting and a dramatic fireplace provide a tranquil ambiance and the big screen HDTV delivers hours of entertainment for a relaxing evening of fun, laughter and frivolity.
The formal dining area overlooks the pool and courtyard and again, basks in the sunlight streaming in. It's a perfect spot to savor a simple meal with a glass of wine and the people most important to you.
The galley style-kitchen has a decidedly eclectic flair, with Asian-inspired color and décor. Don't let its pretty façade fool you, though. This space is meant for serious cooking, as evidenced by the professional 6-burner Viking stove and a Sub-Zero refrigerator, in addition to the dishwasher and wine refrigerator, all in stainless steel.
The most interesting feature of this kitchen is the pass-through out to the courtyard and pool area. What a wonderful convenience to have the ability to send drinks, snacks or any other item directly through instead of walking around and out.
The Master bedroom is an intimate, yet comfortable size, featuring a California King and opening directly to the courtyard. The Master bath is a masterpiece, with a dual vanity and generously-sized double glass-walled shower leading out to the pool courtyard. Two additional bedrooms each feature a Queen bed and the last features two Queens.
Two full baths are shared. Each bedroom boasts a wall-mounted flat screen TV.
With its many creature comforts and unique features, perhaps the most special attribute of this home is its proximity to the canyon and the breathtaking scenery over the City of Angels. Take a gentle walk on the backside of the property on established paths and find yourself high above it all, with nothing but the natural world above and in-front of you and the magical lights of the city beneath you.
A vacation of scenic surprises and pure magic awaits you at Benedict Canyon. Get here as soon as you can.
