Designer home by celebrity artist Gray Malin. Ideally located in the Melrose Village Design District, the home exudes sophistication and a refined elegance. A perfect marriage of Southern Colonial and Coastal Design. The gated front courtyard features large pepper trees and olive bushes. White box pillars create a double covered sun porch for outdoor enjoyment and dramatic curb-appeal. Upon entry a truly open-concept floor plan welcomes guests into the living room with fireplace, formal dining room and stately oak and spindle staircase. An oversized central kitchen island creates the perfect setting for indoor entertaining. Custom cabinets in soft hues harmonize with marble counters, walls and custom farm-style sink further enhanced by nautical brass faucets and lighting. Chef-style appliances, bar seating and an informal dining area allow for multiple spaces to mingle. The family room features a fireplace, large steel doors that create a wall of glass that opens to the sparkling pool with spa and brings in natural light and greenery. A first level guest bedroom with bath also opens to the lush rear yard. A separate cabana structure creates a unique space for outdoor dining, lounging, a space for a work-from-home office or personal gym. Throughout the home custom selected paints in sandy naturals, cool blues, soft pinks and greens are curated to complement a personal wallpaper design collection and wide-plank French oak floors add warmth. Upstairs the primary suite is inspired by old-world Bahamas character with grass-cloth wall finishes, blue nautical tones and a custom fabric bed valance that anchors the room adjacent to the sitting area with fireplace and walk-out patio. A spa-like ensuite bathroom features marble dual-vanity, soaking tub and oversized rain-style shower. A walk-in closet completes the retreat. The second-level also includes three additional guest rooms with ensuite baths, reading nook, laundry room and Southern-style porch with hanging swing chairs. Ascend to the rooftop sundeck for iconic views of the Hollywood sign, downtown LA and Century City. An outdoor fireplace, grill and kitchen with sink and fridge for entertaining create a magical rooftop retreat. A true oasis and escape away in the middle of the bustling city. For your most discerning clientele.
