While Los Angeles is famous for its modern homes, much of the newer construction, especially on the luxurious Westside, recalls traditional styling found in homes on the East Coast. This new construction by Sowa Development in Brentwood, the community-driven suburb known for playing host to so many celebrities (famous residents include Gwyneth Paltrow and Arnold Schwarzenegger), is an example of the new traditional.
The three-level home also shows off another important trend in modern So-Cal living: the development of the elaborate lower level. This one includes a home theater as well as a home gym, wine area, and a bedroom suite. The main level includes a living room, dining room, and a light-filled family room and cook’s kitchen showcasing another key trend, the marble kitchen island. For Southern Californians, the indoor/outdoor flow is essential to the enjoyment of a luxury home and this home features glass-paneled doors opening to the grassy backyard.
For bedrooms in luxury homes, the size trend continues with modern designers crafting vaulted ceilings, large walk-in closets and lavish bathrooms. This home’s master suite also includes a large private deck with views over the backyard to enjoy ocean breezes.
As befits luxury new construction, the home’s features are available at the touch of a button. This home is a Crestron/Lutron smart house/home automation, security cameras & touch-screen panels. It is listed with David Kelmenson of Partners Trust for $5.595 million.
