On a secluded 2.2+ acre knoll, with breathtaking views from downtown L.A. to the Pacific Ocean, this dazzling TWO RESIDENCE (two parcels) compound designed and later renovated by renowned architect, Richard Martin AIA, is a seamless blend of cutting-edge contemporary style, warmth, comfort and wrapped in an elegant traditional sensibility. Here is a unique and private world of uncommon quality and incomparable beauty.The MAIN HOUSE of approximately 7,500+ square feet encompasses 5 en-suite bedrooms, including a stunning primary bedroom with dual baths and walk-in closets, private view-oriented office, dramatic center island kitchen/family room, wine room, lower level screening room, game room and secure safe room/bomb shelter. In addition, there is a separate professional gymnasium building with bath and private access. Bleached, wide plank hardwood floors, vaulted sky-lit ceilings, 3 fireplaces and two lavish outdoor patios blend harmoniously to create a rare and inviting lifestyle.Completely hidden from the main residence, and protected by a proscenium of lush garden landscape is a SECOND RESIDENCE (Guest House) of approximately 4,900+ square feet, also exquisitely renovated and updated by the current owner with the architect. This luxurious residence has 3 generous bedrooms, 4 baths, double powder rooms, an elegant library/office, kitchen/family room, stunning formal dining room, 4 fireplaces and a completely private guest apartment with living room, bedroom, bath and kitchen -- all punctuated with hardwood floors, high ceilings, French doors throughout and city, ocean and mountain views. And the grounds ... reminiscent of the gardens of Tuscany and Provence, uniquely designed by landscape architect Nancy Goslee Power -- a profusion of color, specimen olive, palm and stately oaks, rolling lawns, gentle water elements, towering cypress, swimmers pool and carefully sculpted stone romantic pathways. Double large motor courts and covered parking for six cars complete this exceptional estate.There are very few properties dotting the Southern California landscape of greater allure and magic as this unique Brentwood compound. Truly a rare and remarkable offering.
