Pristine Holmby Hills Mid Century Modern Estate Lists $17.25M

This incredible Holmby Hills mid-century modern estate is in pristine condition with many original fixtures including the master suite which is sublime.  Situated on a knoll, the 5 bedroom / 6.5 bath 1951 home located at 144 Baroda Drive, Holmby Hills 90077, rests on close to 3 acres.  Mature landscaping, pool, spa, waterfalls, BBQ area, tennis court, motor court, add to the architectural masterpiece with walls of glass and enough land for complete privacy.  This spacious and serene home is an entertainers dream. 

The home, being offered for $17,250,000, is shown only by appointment.  Drive through the gated entrance off of Baroda Drive and enter a world of mid-century modern madness.  The motor court accommodates up to 8 cars easily with classic open carports.

The beautiful mid-century resources and style drip from this beauty made with stone, wood paneling and cut-out roof lines.  The original lighting fixtures are just icing on the cake with this one-of-a-kind, immaculate home.
The architectural design evokes calm with a natural environment surrounding you on this estate.  The interior is as if you were sitting in the outdoors.  The angle the ceiling has been laid adds to more of the architectural detailing of this home.  The beautifully classic mid-century clay tiles along with stone, glass and natural wood provide the natural resources with that of the mid-century modern mindset of the architect.  For such a spacious home, around each corner provides another intimate architectural experience.

The tastefully updated Gaggenau kitchen is spacious and provides an amazing amount of natural light with a wall of windows and skylight.  Absolutely beautiful and incredibly functional for large or intimate gatherings.
Okay, pardon me for being a total nut, but this master suite is insanely massive and could accommodate an army.  Not only does a wall of glass follow you throughout the area, but the amount of closet space is vast.  The dressing area and bath are still in an untouched original design.  The master wing creates the perfect heaven.

The original details of this untouched master bath with roman tub are a joy to any purist of mid-century modern design. 

The home's walls of glass open up to mature landscaping, while the pool, spa and waterfalls complement this California mid-century modern lifestyle and just some of the reasons this estate is my "Home of the Week".

The BBQ area can handle the largest of orders, while the yard areas provide hidden escapes.

You could get lost on your own property, and I say why not!  Personally, I would be taking advantage of the tennis court and getting a lot of use out of it.  This home is truly one-of-a-kind and something worth seeing.
As the spacious home with close to 9,000 square feet of interior living space sits on close to 3 acres of a prime Holmby Hills location north of Sunset, this is a trophy property for any purist looking for a luxury home with architectural integrity. Call to make an appointment.
