Finding Your Happy: 7801 Hillside AveAuthor:Candace Abbott
High above the Sunset Strip, nestled behind a host of lush trees is 7801 Hillside Ave, a contemporary-Mediterranean wonder. Here the views the city are majestic and the close to half an acre estate is everything California dreams are made of.
Although originally built in 1923, the home shows no signs of the past, only the present. The private property boasts state-of-the-art amenities like a guest house with a movie theater and fully equipped gym. Along with those necessary luxuries, the home is laced with modern design elements such a spa-style master bath with a minimalistic, but luxe gray and white theme. Here you’ll find a deep soaking tub situated alongside massive windows for city views.
This is adjacent to the master suite (there are 3 suites in total) that too is a contemporary treat. The space is large with a cozy sitting space and panoramic views of the city. Exposed beams give the Mediterranean feel along with rich wooden flooring, while built-ins host marbled shelving and inlaid fireplaces.
And while the sleeping quarters are impressive, entertaining spaces are in abundance at this retreat. A spacious living room is home to a classic fireplace and architectural details. This room, ideal for great conversation and company, leads to a billiard room and a one guest bedroom suite.
A chef’s kitchen (and its neighboring sitting area) is another prime spot to host friends. Complete with top-of-the-line appliances, the updated space features a large marble island, that doubles as a prep space and bar as well as beautiful design details and a flood of natural light thanks to the host of windows. The same is true of the dining space where arched windows, high ceilings and exposed beams warm up the property’s sleek design.
This home with its infinity pool and extensive outdoor space is a modern entertainer’s happy. It’s ready-to-move in, up-to-date and with a $9,945,000 asking price it’s the 6 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 7,130 square foot home you always knew you wanted.
