Modern Marvel in Hancock ParkAuthor:Candace Abbott
What: Architectural significance takes shape through this unapologetically modern, 4-bedroom, 6-bath home that’s standing tall on Mansfield Ave. With a facade that’s composed of mixed materials including reclaimed wood offset by muted concrete and steel accents, the home’s exterior inspires and no doubt sparks curiosity to what’s inside. Surrounded by a sustainable garden of succulents, rocks and other eco-conscious greenery, you arrive at the entryway marked by an oversized glass door with geometric detail.
Step inside and it’s clear that no luxury has been spared. Though a minimalist essence takes over, the open concept creates a sense of warmth with the contrast of colors and materials. The property’s fluid layout is translated through an open Bulthaup kitchen, which is outfitted with state-of-the-art Miele appliances, recessed lighting and a massive center island to define the space all of which flows perfectly into the living and dining space.
The home is flooded with natural light through a host of floor-to-ceiling grid windows, situated in the most desired of locations. Further through the main floor and you’ll find retractable walls leading to a sprawling outdoor living space replete with a pool and spa, a wealth of entertaining space and an expansive lawn area. Laced in luxury the architecture of the structure creates a stunning backdrop to the backyard space and a chance to fully emerge in the L.A. lifestyle.
Back inside, a suspended wooden staircase leads the way to an impressive master suite, which boastings an angled ceiling, reclaimed hardwood flooring and a private balcony that looks out to the treetops. A bit of a retreat in and of itself, the master suite gives way to a massive spa-style bath space where Caesar stone shares the stage with rustic wood, industrial steal and a host of natural light. A deep porcelain soaking tub sits windowside with an unobstructed view of nature. The suite is home to a custom closet space as well.
The second level is home to the three additional guest suites, each with its own custom bath to accompany it.
What We Love: A marvel of modern architecture and an embodiment of luxury, this Hancock Park takes its place among some of LA’s most eye-catching and inspiring properties. The fusion of materials, the wealth of natural light and the commitment to structural elegance has us sold.
