Home of the Week: Glass-Embraced Sunset Strip Estate


Set your sights on 9010 Hopen Place, an impressive 10,000+ square foot property hovering above LA’s Sunset Strip and belonging to playwright and television star Matthew Perry. Upon realizing that most of his time is spent working in New York, the actor has decided to list his sunny SoCal haven with Partners Trust’s Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen, who are committed to showcasing the estate’s impressive walls of glass and indoor-outdoor living design, both of which are original to the 1962 structure.

Recent media buzz is accentuating the home’s seamless design fluidity—in fact, one elevation level is maintained from the interior living spaces to the outdoor entertaining grounds and all the way to the edge of the infinity pool.

Not only does this estate feature unobstructed views from Downtown LA to Century City and onward to the Pacific, but it’s location in the highly sought-after Bird Streets neighborhood affords an easy drive to world-class entertainment, shopping, and dining found in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and along the Sunset Strip.


The home’s stunning outdoor entertaining area beckons with its infinity pool and baja shelf, dramatic fire pits, and far-reaching views overlooking Downtown Los Angeles and Century City. Curtains can be drawn along the covered cabanas for added privacy while dining, watching television, or simply luxuriating.


A series of steps lead from the main outdoor entertainment area to a lower platform that, if you look closely, is accentuated by a cascading wall of water. City to ocean views at nightfall are all the more captivating from this outdoor oasis, especially from the master suite which is expertly positioned to capitalize on the home’s indoor/outdoor fluidity.


Tucked below the master suite is the home’s subterranean screening room where expansive and thick windows allow you to peer directly into the depths of the swimming pool. While most in-residence theaters typically boast lofty seating arrangements or a superior sound system, not many can claim an underwater experience quite like this one can.


It’s impossible to feel confined in this spa-like bath, which invites you to take a luxurious soak in the tub and/or a cleansing steam in the glass-enclosed shower, all the while enjoying the outdoor scenery via glass partitions.

9010 Hopen Place is listed with Partners Trust’s Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen. For more information on this property, click here.
