Inspired by the riads of Marrakech, this effortlessly chic Eagle Rock home is a special offering. Sited on a ridge above Occidental College, one steps down from the street into a private, gated sanctuary. Custom steel french doors blur the lines between indoors and out, opening up the living and dining areas to lush gardens and wide decks that offer inspiring and verdant views of the area all the way to the Observatory.
The house has been lovingly remodeled by the owners over the last 10 years and features luxurious finishes. The living and dining areas have been opened to the kitchen which is anchored by a striking monolithic marble wall. Marble counters, stainless appliances, a large pantry and original built-ins are a few of the highlights here. Down the hallway are three bedrooms and two baths. All the bedrooms open to the outdoors and many walls and ceilings in this part of the house have been hand stenciled by a local artist.
Beneath the house is a large, finished bonus room currently used as a home office. It would also make a wonderful media room and features a recently added bathroom.
The outdoor areas are a revelation.The owners love to entertain and have created a spectacular environment to share with friends and family. The main deck provides room for outdoor dining and lounging and has a custom fire feature. Beyond the deck, stone paths wend their way under oak trees down a gentle slope, revealing heretofore hidden spots: another large outdoor dining area, a large tent with fire pit and multiple seating areas.
Many of the home's systems have been upgraded, including a newer roof, HVAC and updated fireplace.
