Priced At $2,730,000
2790 Ellison Drive in Beverly Hills has an open, airy floor plan which becomes evident in its entry hall (inclusive of a double-door coat closet and powder room). Wood floors gleam beneath, white ceilings loft above, a fireplace flickers ahead, and the eye travels out French doors to a covered patio, grassy lawn, and mature landscaping.
The 3,101 sq.ft. houseâ€™s large living room centers around a triple-sided fireplace, has walls of French doors opening to the pool and back yard areas, has built-in media component storage, gleaming oak hardwood floors (which are throughout most of the house), and recessed art lighting. The family room sits on the other side of the triple-sided fireplace and features built-in speakers, recessed lighting, built-in niches, and French doors to the homeâ€™s patio and back yard areas. The dining area has built-in speakers and is open to both the kitchen and the family area. French doors also open to the opportunity of al fresco dining. There is a “whole home” audio system featuring built-in speakers throughout the first floor–living room, family room, dining room, kitchen and office; as well as outside and in the master bed and bath, and all link to a central control system.
The homeâ€™s renovated kitchen showcases high-end appliances like a commercial-grade Wolf range/oven and multi-speed hood, an under-counter Miele Convection Speed oven/microwave, a Miele â€œquiet-styleâ€ dishwasher, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer (water/ice in-door), filtered water at the sink, and 146-bottle Sub-Zero wine refrigerator. Gorgeous, grainy, and grey custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry lines the kitchen, along with gleaming Caesarstone counter tops and kitchen peninsula. Basalt tiles line the walls (up to the ceiling in some areas). A custom, expansive pantry room provides additional storage for food, appliances, and seasonal items. The kitchen has built-in banquette seating and room for â€œeating in.â€ Large picture windows and French doors bring the outside in.
Of the homeâ€™s 4 bedrooms (and officeâ€”which could serve as a 5th), 3 are collected upstairs, including the impressive master suite. The bedroom is highlighted by a large balcony with double-doors, 2 closets (1 walk-in), breezy windows, in-wall sound system, and reading lights. Plenty of room for a â€œkingâ€ here. The master bathroom has a spa-like feel and is adorned with Ann Sacks tiles, Dorn Bracht and Gessi chrome fixtures, separate tub and shower, Wetstyle free-standing â€œtulipâ€ tub filler, side-by-side sinks, and Calacatta Marble counters. 2 Robern medicine cabinets with interior electrical outlets add additional functionality to the beauty of this bath.
Along with the master are two additional upstairs bedrooms, serviced by a large bathroom.
A guest suite (â€œmaidâ€™sâ€) with its own remodeled bath is on the main level of the house, along with an ample-sized office. The office opens to the home’s enclosed front yard which has outdoor seating areas and a fountain. All 5 of the homeâ€™s bathrooms have been renovated (1 powder room, 1 pool â€œpowder,â€ 1 shared guest bathroom, and 2 en-suite bathrooms) and have Duravit vanities and medicine cabinets.
The direct-access 2-car garage is currently used as a gym and has new rubber flooring. The garage has plenty of storage and also contains side-by-side laundry machines and a kitchenette. Outside the garage door is a private, gated driveway that is available for off-street parking. The cul-de-sac portion of Ellison on which this house sits offers plenty of on-street parking for gatherings or daily in-and-out use.
BONUS ALERT: A custom-designed 100-sq.ft. â€œstudio/bonus roomâ€ with separate HVAC is in the homeâ€™s multi-functional backyard. This non-permitted (but â€œbuilt-to-codeâ€) structure offers multiple solutions to the question of â€œwhere do I put myâ€¦?â€ [We are not including this additional square-footage in the total.]
Also outside are professionally-installed drought-tolerant gardens featuring California native and Mediterranean plants, drip irrigation, and 2 garden fountains. The propertyâ€™s 11,633 sq.ft. grounds are fully enclosed and gated (dog-friendly), contain a large, flat grassy area, terraced areas, and herb and vegetable garden. A long, covered porch out back provides shady lounging areas. LED landscape lighting makes evenings outside sparkle. And speaking of sparkling: A remodeled, heated pool and spa with Pebble Tec finishes and newer coping and tile. A â€œpool powderâ€ room adds functionality to the pool deck.
