1201 Laurel Way, Beverly Hills
1201 Laurel Way is a one-of-a-kind trophy home in Beverly Hills where modern luxuries are blended into a true work of art. Its unique position on top of the hill inspired Michael Palumbo and its architects to design the house using largely impressive floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the phenomenal unobstructed views that are spreading all around Downtown Los Angeles, Catalina and the coastline of California.
The principal aesthetic idea behind the creation of 1201 Laurel Way was that each room and space should be a jewel box, an individually created, precisely functional and dramatic sensory experience with its own depth of architecture. The highly contrasting architectural elements are melted together to create not only a functional but also a magnificent architectural work of art.
An impressive 14-foot wood pivot door, flanked by huge glass panels, leads you into the main foyer. Just few steps away are glass floors that reveal the wine cellar and wet-bar beneath. Right in front the spacious living and dining area face towards Beverly Hills and beyond. The layout moves organically to state-of-the-art kitchen with Italian lacquered cabinetry and integrated Miele appliances.
The third floor is fully occupied by the master bedroom, including spacious his and her closets, impressive 60’’ glass fireplace, Italian cabinetry, magnificent master bath/spa and a private 2,500 sq. ft. terrace with a 6-person hot tub and stunning city views of Los Angeles.
On the opposite side of the property the guest suite with a living room, a gym and a small office sits on top of a five-car garage.
The infinity pool in front of the villa floats the elegant moat water feature that encircles the house in a horseshoe shape. The 42 inch deep water feature eliminates the need for railings and gives the whole property a floating and spacious living environment that combines ultimate luxury and visual experience.
Beverly Hill’s 90210, where 1201 Laurel Way is located, is probably one of the most famous zip codes in the world. The city is surrounded by Los Angeles and West Hollywood and is home to many celebrities and VIP’s. The warm Mediterranean micro climate with its abundance of sunshine, mild winters and warm summers together with a prime location and magnificently crafted architecture makes 1201 Laurel Way one of the finest properties in the world.
