An architectural oasis with sweeping views of Los Angeles, this three-level home is gracefully perched within the hillside of the historic Laughlin Park Community. Recently featured in NBC News’ Open House segment, the residence is praised for its roots in Scandinavian design, “with neutral tones and light-filled interiors.” The aesthetic is simple, yet sophisticated; the floor plan is wide-open, yet wholly intimate. The Swedish-inspired architecture represents a seeming contradiction, a clash between contemporary and comfort, but the home is a bona fide embodiment of both.
Brimming with natural materials, such as wood, stone, and glass, the home evokes a sense of informality despite the precision and refinement of the architecture. Floor-to-ceiling windows and pocket sliding doors illuminate the interior of every room and offer desirable vistas ranging from Downtown Los Angeles to the beaches of Santa Monica. The great room, inclusive of its oversized white couch and bamboo details, is the ultimate area to revitalize and bask in the inpouring light. Small accents of color throughout are perfect complements to the otherwise neutral, uncomplicated space.
The great room flows seamlessly into the dining area, adorned with a custom-made table weighing over 900 pounds, and the ensuing kitchen. With its oversized marble island, double refrigerators, and walk-in pantry, the gourmet kitchen is one of the home’s most winsome areas. The window wall opens to yet another balcony, creating a seamless indoor and outdoor space to entertain.
The third level features the master retreat, which includes an oversized balcony and spa-like bathroom, allowing one to relax while admiring the views beyond the windows and skylight. Equipped with an in-home theater and secluded pool and spa, the home is truly a luxurious sanctum with all the conveniences just beyond the Laughlin gates.
