Secluded on a rare promontory above the Sunset Strip with unrivaled vistas of the city and sea lies, is this architecturally inspiring shrine to modern allure and effortless sophistication. Tucked behind a private gate and sheltered from the street by hillside and greenery, this Landry Design Group masterpiece estate with interior architecture and design by Franco Vecchio, delivers a feeling of complete privacy while offering an endless capacity for enjoying the California lifestyle year round.
Every aspect of this home is grand in scale and bold in design creating an elegant, one-of-a-kind refuge. Its oversized glass front door opens onto an entryway that dramatically overlooks the cavernous great room. Walls of glass enclose the back of the home simultaneously welcoming sunlight and offering singular views of the city below. From the Griffith Observatory, past Downtown, and all the way to the Getty Center, the entirety of Los Angeles is presented in a single unobstructed panorama that can be enjoyed from nearly every room.
Custom colored terrazzo marble floors run throughout, adding nurturing warmth to the open, modern spaces. The great room on the lower level features fleetwood doors that open to outdoor areas with built-in heat lamps and a bathroom with shower, steam, and sauna. The other side of the great room flows to a gourmet kitchen wrapped in glass with Caeser stone countertops and Miele stainless steel appliances. The kitchen opens gracefully to an outdoor barbecue area with Viking grill that wraps around the back of the home to the infinity-edge pool with Jacuzzi, and fire pit on the edge of the property.
The third floor master suite offers a tower-like retreat with a full glass wall delivering incredible views and a fully retractable skylight, completing the sensation of open-air freedom. Also gracing this suite are hardwood floors, his-and-hers walk-in closet, dual fireplaces, and access to a private terrace with fire pit. Adjoining the master bedroom is a positively decadent master bathroom encircled by glass with floating, double-sided vanity, freestanding soaking tub and an indoor/outdoor shower that overlooks downtown. Next to the master suite is one of four en suite guest rooms located throughout the house. This one operates well as a private office with fireplace, built-in shelves, and glass walls that open onto a terrace that connects to the master suite.
A majestic glass and stone sculpture situated above the heart of the Sunset Strip, 1302 Collingwood Place is a home like no other. It’s a place of gracious, sophisticated living surrounded by some of the best shopping, dining and nightlife opportunities that Los Angeles has to offer. The listing agent is Cindy Ambuehl of The Agency.
