Mansion Built Into a Hollywood Hills Cliffside Lists for $43 Million
A newly constructed Los Angeles trophy home that takes living in the Hollywood Hills to another level has hit the market for $43 million.
Not simply within the neighborhood, the 13,500-square-foot contemporary abode, set among the city’s posh Bird Streets, is built directly into the hills themselves. It’s also among the priciest homes currently for sale in the Hollywood Hills.
“The home is recessed 110 feet into a granite cliff,” explained architect Russell Holthouse of Vantage Design Group, which designed the property. “Very few homes have this site and situation.”
It’s “a structural concrete house,” Holthouse added. “Which is extremely rare in Los Angeles, and designed to last an eternity.”
The five-bedroom property took a whopping eight years to build, according to Aaron Kirman of AKG Christie’s International Real Estate, who is handling the sale of the home alongside Branden and Rayni Williams of the Beverly Hills Estates.
The result is “the ultimate castle in the sky,” that’s “one of the most unique trophy estates in Los Angeles,” Kirman said.
Inside, the open-plan home has a cantilevered glass living room, a dining space, and a kitchen with stone counters. Its many amenities include a gym, a yoga room, a spa, and a primary suite with a private sitting area, a spa-like bathroom and a walk-in closet.
There’s also huge walls of glass that open up to the outdoors, a sculptural staircase, warm wood accents, automated blackout shades, a commercial elevator, a 12-car garage and far-reaching views.
Outside, drought tolerant landscaping is joined by walking paths and a citrus grove, as well as a sizable 4,000-square-foot deck space that has an infinity edge pool with a spa and a sunken seating area.
“The sunken fire pit with jetliner views of the city gives you the quintessential L.A. life,” Branden Williams said.
