Open house 9/25 cancelled! Back on the market for the 4th time at no fault of the property - serious buyers only, please! North Hills meets Laurel Hills! Truly, one of the area's finest mid-century modern homes that evokes the spirit of sprawling estates in Palm Springs, the Dona's in Studio City, or Hollywood Hills but set on an almost 8k sf lot (per assessor) in the midst of a sleepy pocket neighborhood brimming with well-kept ranchettes nestled between Granada Hills, Sherwood Forest, and Van Nuys. Enveloped by super-sized Sago Palms, Black Pine bonsai, and blossoming Birds of Paradise, the charismatic curb appeal offers a sense of intrigue from the flared roof corners and silky smooth stucco exterior to the Mahogany front door paired with matching sidelights. Upon entering the Blue Pearl granite foyer, the open floor plan is generously sized and seamlessly blends all living spaces for optimal live/work/play functionalities. Worthy of Architectural Digest and equipped for the most demanding culinarian, the gourmet island kitchen is punctuated by "acres" of custom Cherry wood cabinetry with soft-closing drawers, black granite counters, LED undercabinet lighting, and a full suite of professional KitchenAid stainless appliances including a 36" built-in refrigerator/freezer, convection oven and microwave, gas cooktop with grille + island hood, warming drawer, wine/beverage cooler, and dishwasher. Warmed by a wood burning fireplace trimmed in contemporary concrete and adjacent to the formal dining room with a nostalgic wet bar, the dramatic step down living room is illuminated by dual picture windows and is perfectly suited for grand soirees and casual gatherings alike. Twin doors reveal the seductive primary suite with direct access to a private covered patio and boldly open to the dreamy ensuite bath highlighted by a deep soaking freestanding tub, a separate subway tile shower with frameless enclosure, and luxurious finishes including Jado hardware and a Toto lavatory; two secondary bedrooms, one with an attached travertine bath, round out the center hall plan. Redefining the concept of outdoor living, the free form flagstone lagoon-style pool with boulder waterfall feature brilliantly blends into the the breathtaking backyard smothered in mature landscape, Creeping Fig vines, radiant Rosemary, and privacy plantings. Proving that beauty isn't just skin deep, thoughtful amenities like Anderson wood windows and doors, a Bosch tankless water heater, new vinyl plank flooring, central HVAC, LED recessed lighting throughout, and high performance insulation will ensure that this home ages gracefully for years to come.
