This newly-minted renovation of an Architectural home in Encinoâ€™s prestigious Clark Gable Estates offers todayâ€™s buyer every modern convenience. The home is located south-of-Ventura-Boulevard (but is close enough to walk to all the area has to offer) and is on a quiet cul-de-sac. Black-lacquered double entry doors open to soaring 20-foot-high ceilings and a modern interpretation of a mid-century open floor plan. The impressive two-story living area (with two-story fireplace) anchors the entertaining spaces in the residence. Walls of glass frame mature Jacaranda trees. â€œGrey Ghostâ€-hued hardwood floors and â€œArchitectural Whiteâ€-colored walls give the impression of an art gallery space. Bring your largest canvasesâ€”there is plenty of room for your collection! Step up to an elevated informal dining platform that overlooks the homeâ€™s living room. Just off of the dining area is the heart that beats inside this house; its family room (with its own fireplace) and the chefâ€™s kitchen. This area is â€œwhere it all happens.â€ An 8-foot-long island (with counter top dining for 4-6), stainless-steel appliances, and plenty of custom cabinet space make this kitchen a stand-out success story. Access to the great outdoors (and sparkling pool) can be had from either the family room or the kitchen through accordion glass doors. A large laundry area (with its own sink) is just off of the kitchen. There is also the first of the homeâ€™s SIXÂ bedrooms on the downstairs level. This en-suite room (with private access) is perfect for live-in or long-term guest use. This versatile room could also be a gym or office. There is also a powder room on the ground floor. One of the most impressive of this homeâ€™s many features is its master suite. and a spacious wardrobe room is ready for any Clotheshorse (and their partner). A balcony allows a resident to survey their domain (and pool). An elegant master bathroom showcases a free-standing spa tub, a step-in mitered-glass shower, double sinks, and plenty or storage space. De-stress yourself while sitting on a built-in bench in this resort-style shower and turn up the steam! Four other guest rooms share the homeâ€™s second story (bringing the houseâ€™s total bedroom count to 6). Two of these upstairs guest rooms areâ€”like the one downstairs and the masterâ€”en suite, while two discreetly share a bath. Indoor-outdoor living is key here on Ashley Oaks. This homeâ€™s outdoor spaces are open and versatile. Anchored by a swimmerâ€™s heated pool, the large lot (over 17,000 sq.ft.) features a fire pit with built-in seating, patios with room for dining and gatherings, and a large grassy lawn. Plenty of outdoor lighting makes this home ready for evenings al fresco. This 4,303 sq.ft. 6-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom renovated home in a five-star Encino location makes south-of-the-boulevard life grand. Close by is shopping, dining, entertainment, and easy access to freeways. Also, just a short drive up the hill and youâ€™re at Mulholland Dr.
