This property combines a stunning location with an early masterpiece by an architect who would go on to design some of the most iconic celebrity residences in Los Angeles
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
A Bel-Air view property designed by award-winning celebrity architect Robert L. Earl in 1963 as his own home has been listed at $4,440,000 by Aaron Kirman, President of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of John Aaroe Group. Set on a half-acre promontory with sweeping canyon, city and coastline views, the 1394 Casiano Road home retains most of Earl’s original features and details. Its current owners recently collaborated with the architect on a sensitive update of the property.
For decades, Earl has designed lavish custom estates for an array of famous clients including Warren Beatty, Madonna, Tom Selleck, Gary Shandling, Nancy Sinatra and Sylvester Stallone. This 2,781 square foot home, which the architect designed in his twenties, reflects his fluent, clean-lined vision —aimed here at giving the surrounding vistas center stage.
The property is not visible from the street below; it is approached via a long, climbing drive ending at the large motor court and three-car covered parking.
Inside the brightly hued front door, walls of floor-to-ceiling windows wash natural light across the flowing public rooms, floored in their original terrazzo tile. Sliding glass doors open to a pool and deck surrounded by 180-degree views stretching from the hillside and the city to the coast and beyond. The home’s four bedrooms include a master suite with a massive walk-in closet and sunken terrazzo tub. The only major alteration in the current refurbishment was the removal of two walls to further open up the view.
“This property combines a stunning location with an early masterpiece by an architect who would go on to design some of the most iconic celebrity residences in Los Angeles,” says Kirman. “The result is incomparable.”
