This great room features a glass wall that offers sweeping lake views. Instead of using steel as a structural support, the wall is supported by stacked glass, similar to an urban skyscraper. An automated cabinet above the fireplace opens at the click of a button to reveal the TV. Meanwhile, ceiling beams and warm wood finishes give a nod to the home's Mediterranean design.
Metallic plaster continues from the master bath into the master bedroom of this Mediterranean-inspired luxury estate. A cut stone fireplace adds elegance and warmth to the spacious room. Stone columns on either side of the bed support an arch outfitted with recessed reading lights. Draperies open and close with a button to block light for sleeping or reveal views from the tall windows during the day.
Period details abound in this two-story, wood-paneled library, part of a 3.5-acre Mediterranean-style estate located in the heart of Beverly Hills. Known as The Beverly House, the property was designed by Gordon Kaufmann and built in 1927. In this library, the design of the sculpted, cathedral-height ceiling mirrors the pattern of the custom carpet underfoot. Carved panels lend architectural detail and visual interest to every inch of the massive space, while warm wood tones, a crackling fireplace and accent lighting lend coziness and warmth.
