9557 Lime Orchard , Beverly Hills,
Sophisticated mid-century modern nestled in private and guard-gated enclave of Hidden Valley Estates. Dramatic courtyard entry welcomes one into the Rowan Residence by Robert Skinner (originally photographed in 1964 by Julius Shulman and featured in Taschen's Modernism Rediscovered). The meticulous restoration, led by architect John Bertram with designer Sarah Shetter, is in harmony with the original design, and incorporates Douglas fir furniture-grade custom cabinetry, terrazzo flooring, Calacatta Gold and Salt Marble countertops, LSI museum-quality lighting, redwood tongue and groove interior and exterior siding, all new fixtures, finishes and systems, and chef's kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. Warm and elegant reimagining of the kitchen, primary suite, and office, with stylishly redone bathrooms and closets throughout the house. Carefully delineated personal spaces offer intimacy and privacy, set off from open floor plan common spaces. Walls of glass throughout create the ideal setting for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. Beautiful pool, lush greenery, mature trees and gardens designed by Judy Kameon of Elysian Landscapes complete a relaxing and serene atmosphere in a verdant setting. This is a unique opportunity to live in an architectural work of art. Perfect for those seeking an exceptional and private lifestyle.
