Home of the Week: A tour de force in Trousdale Estates

Home of the Week | Trousdale Estates

The 7,430-square-foot home in the Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills has soaring ceilings, walls of sliding glass doors and a temperature-controlled wine cellar. Black Antolini marble walls wrap the interiors and exteriors to give the contemporary an all-encompassing sheen. A theater room, an office, formal living and dining rooms and six bedrooms make up the open floor plan. A grand suite bedroom is outfitted with its own kitchenette and a private reflecting pool.

This sleek, single-level home pulls off a contemporary design coup with its emphasis on horizontal lines. Wide walls of glass doors slide open electronically to connect open-plan indoor and outdoor living spaces. City and ocean views stretch to the horizon. Even the long, low gas fireplaces follow the linear cues.
