Robert Skinner: Trousdale Mid-Century Modern Showplace
There are always mid-century modern architectural treasures found in the Beverly Hills enclave known as Trousdale Estates, developed by Paul Trousdale. Built in 1962, this dynamic design by architect Robert Skinner will stop you in your tracks. With an homage to the International Style, Skinner provides a spacious five bedroom and six bathroom showplace within 8,500 square feet of open plan living space. The home is being offered for $12,500,000.
Located at the end of cul-de-sac, 400 Castle Place, Beverly Hills, rests on a large lot of 40,466 square feet provides enough room for privacy while enjoying the outdoors or gatherings with friends around the pool.
The two-story walls of glass and skylights invite beautiful natural light to the indoors while defused solar gain is achieved by the deep eave surrounding the envelope. This is an entertainer's home! A dramatic entryway leads to an over-sized living room with two-story walls of glass on either side and a two-sided fireplace.
Additionally, there is a second living room, dining room, large updated kitchen with a cozy attached family room, and an office loft. The handsome master suite and two additional guest suites, plus a maid's room complete the main level, while a second master bedroom and bathroom comprise the second story. The updated amenities will make anyone feel at home. The architecture and design go hand in hand with this beauty. Not a detail to be missed.
Outdoor areas include an expansive pool terrace with al fresco dining areas and an outdoor fireplace for chilly LA nights. This home has been lushly landscaped. For more information, contact modern homes los angeles.
