Stylish Reimagined Country Estate
A newly reimagined Mandeville Canyon mini estate of great presence, captures the best of both city and country lifestyle – privacy, elegance, and indoor-outdoor flow for intimate gatherings and lavish entertaining.
Set well back from the road, a sweeping drive and motorcourt front this approximately 17,000 square foot flat lot, highlighted with sculptural sycamores, lush ferns, and stately, manicured ficus trees. Designed by John Payne, the two-story custom residence has five bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, an ideal floor plan, and abundant space inside and out. This is a peaceful retreat just minutes from Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and the beach.
The dramatic, double-height entry sets the tone: welcoming, light and bright, with glossy walnut hardwood floors. The living room is tranquil and serene, with plantation shutters and recessed lighting. The formal dining room has built-in, lighted cabinetry and a serving buffet.
An expansive kitchen and family room face onto the swimming pool, patio, and verdant yard. The remodeled gourmet kitchen has a breakfast area that opens to a small private deck, plus a breakfast bar and additional seating at the center island. There is abundant counter space and plenty of storage, plus stainless appliances, and a greenhouse window. Adjoining the kitchen is a comfortable family room with a fireplace and built-in cabinetry. Completing the downstairs is an office/maids room, a powder room, and a utility room with direct access to a three-car garage, which has a work bench and extra storage.
Up the grand, central staircase is the master suite, three additional bedrooms, two baths, a library, and a large multi-purpose room. The master suite has a private deck, a generously-sized walk-in closet and dressing room with built-in vanity, plus a very large, luxurious spa-like bathroom. The library is vast with a cathedral ceiling, and the multi-purpose room could be a second family, game, and screening room, or well-outfitted craft room, with extensive counter space and built-in cabinets.
The exceptionally private garden is park-like and lush, with sycamores, fruit trees, roses, patio areas, a beautiful pool and spa, and outdoor barbecue entertainment areas.
Welcome home to perfectly adapted to Southern California living. Every attention has been given to details, creating a residence of impeccable quality and remarkable value.
