The Good Life In Encino, $4.8M


Encino may be part of Los Angeles, but nonetheless, it feels light years away. A neighborhood of large homes set privately in mature landscaping, Encino has always been one of the area’s premier neighborhoods and a longtime magnet for Hollywood A-listers. New to the market after being completely reimagined and rebuilt by Daniela Amavia and Dale Brasel of Bravia Design, this sprawling c.1981 home is now ready for its next four decades; it has been staged for sale by LA’s staging goddess Meridith Baer.

Down a long gated driveway, you reach the 5-bed, 6-bath, 2-half bath home through a circular motor court paved in flagstone and brick.

Inside, the rooms are grandly scaled, and no surface was left untouched by the renovation. All of the systems, including security, are completely new, plus a new glass-enclosed outdoor elevator now connects all three levels and an infinity pool has been cantilevered out into the lush landscape.

The kitchen is vast and fully open to another, more casual dining area and family room.

The house also features a pair master suites, each with a substantial dressing room and sybaritic spa bath.
