This 30,000-square foot house was built near the street, on a large (51,417-square-foot) lot in the Westside area of Los Angeles. This precise location was chosen due to geological constraints and to allow for a large garden space to the rear. The main floor includes extensive terraces and a pool area that descends to a lawn terrace at the basement level of the three-story residence. The garden, partially set on a plinth-like structure, steps down in the direction of the city view. The entrance sequence, which serves to preserve the privacy of the owners from the street, begins with a lower level circular stone-walled motor court. A stairway leads up to the main areas of the house. A 180-foot-long water wall guides the visitor to the entry before continuing to a basement level water garden. Inside the house, a two-story hallway leads to the view and separates the formal living room and library from the dining room and family/kitchen area. Each room on the main level has access to a terrace and the view. The main level pool has an infinity edge that cascades down to the garden and the motor court. The lower level consists of additional bedrooms, a full wellness spa, theater, bar and entertainment spaces, and a ten-car garage. The upper level has a long north-south hallway that opens to the master bedroom and balcony on the southeastern corner of the house, as well as three smaller bedrooms, two of which share a balcony. The roof deck includes a cabana, a fire pit seating area, and a bar.
