Whenever you’re dreaming of escaping to Los Angeles for a collection of days spent in luxury, consider the stylish Sunset Plaza Mansion. Imagined as a high-end getaway that can be rented all year round, the retreat in California conveys a majestic feeling. Steel and glass were combined with concrete and wood to explore a boldness rarely seen in rental retreats. Designed by David Lawrence Gray Architects, the Sunset Plaza Mansion is a one of a kind residence that can be enjoyed by many.
With prices starting at $3,500 per night, the sophisticated mansion overlooks Hollywood Hills with its imposing glass and concrete facade. Mirroring the blue sky and hinting towards the bold use of colors inside, this inspiring “home away from home” is difficult to admire in all its carefully chosen details.
“Part contemporary palace, part concrete fortress”, the unique villa sits on a privately gated half-acre promontory with stunning panoramas across the pool over the valley below. The whole structure is imposing through the use of materials, but also cheerful because of vivid colors inserted here and there. Natural light floods the spaces through a collection of different windows. Clerestory windows allow art to hang ostentatiously on the raw concrete walls, floor-to-ceiling windows explore panoramic views of downtown LA and the ocean, skylights capture direct sunlight, while the glass walkway supporting the office is just amazing.
Water activities are like no other: the villa offers not only a private outdoor swimming pool with inviting lounge areas, but also the possibility to enjoy its 12-person Hollywood-view spa. Less than five miles from the Sunset Strip, the mansion awaits guests with pretty interesting options for relaxing: a koi pond to sink your thoughts into, a gym to deserve and enjoy a relaxed body and mind, and socializing: a billiards table to practice your skills and a large screening room with a full-sized bar.
“The professional stainless steel kitchen designed by the Porsche Design Group, is so sleek you’ll feel as if a celebrity chef could turn up at any minute. With five bedrooms in the main villa, and two more in the detached gate house (which also has its own living room), this mansion will accommodate up to 14 guests. The lavish master suite with rare wood detailing includes an opulent dual master bathroom.”
One last thing: “Its state of the art security system provides peace of mind.” Now you can go pack.
