Duplex Turned Stunning Loft Like Modern Showplace

I had the pleasure of seeing this property in person this week, and not only do I like the concept, but definitely liked the execution as well. The property was a Spanish style side by side duplex that the developer converted into a stunning wide open loft like four bedroom showstopper. They used as a base my favorite wood flooring choice at the moment throughout the home, wide plank white oak floors. The attention to detail is first rate, including the front bathroom (shown below) with wallpaper pattern like design ingrained into the tiles, which to be honest I had never seen before. There is a large chef's kitchen, a multitude of skylights allowing natural light to flood the property, and an ideal open floor plan leading to a truly relaxing backyard with great landscaping. I like how they kept one of the duplex doors on one side of the front to allow for a home office as well. Lying in a prime "Beverly Grove" neighborhood by all the chic shopping and restaurants on Melrose, this one is not to be missed.

Rocker Chic Hollywood Hills Hideaway

This home is a bit different then the ones that normally catch my eye, but something about the funkiness grabbed me. This is a very chic home with a nod to the bohemian aesthetic. Lying in a great Hollywood Hills location by the Hollywood Bowl, this property is incredibly private as it is hidden behind lush foliage. A ton of designer details include Chinoiserie silk wallpaper in the dining room, antique mirrored and lacquered walls in the living room, and gold-leaf ceilings in the master bedrooom. An updated kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, and high end appliances like Miele & Sub-Zero. Great indoor outdoor flow with dramatic outdoor space that includes a 7' grotto and outdoor shower. There is also a one bed guest apartment with full kitchen and bath. A very unique property indeed.
