This Mandeville Canyon study of modernism represents the collaboration between its owners and architect Jesse Bornstein, AIA. References to L. A. s great modernists like A. Quincy Jones flow throughout as Bornstein used the spectacular site and its tree-shrouded surrounds as inspiration for the custom gated compound. The sustainable property encompasses a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath main house with an office, den, gym, and a guest house with bath, pool and spa amid an arrestingly tranquil xeriscape. Timeless and natural materials such as polished concrete, ribbons of black aluminum, gypsum plaster and a rich mix of woods like Walnut and California Redwood blend with all manner and form of glass -clear, tinted, clerestory and retractable sliding folding doors creating dramatic, expansive, highly livable space that seamlessly interacts with the natural landscape and light. The two-story floorplan opens at its center into a gorgeous, broad living room and dining space with 20-foot ceilings, granite double-sided fireplace and walls of glass opening to nature. A superb gourmet kitchen with center island unfolds into the family room. An office, guest suite, utility room and powder bath complete the first level. An open broad-lit wide stairwell leads to a mezzanine open to below and gorgeous vistas beyond as the second level continues to balance proportion, light and a visual relationship to nature. The spacious primary suite rests in its own wing with a fireplace, generous his/her closet, and set behind exotic Shoji glass movable panels, a Zen bath with double vanities, spa tub and shower. Adjoining the primary suite is a gym and private patio with verdant overlook. The opposite wing contains an open den plus two spacious guest bedrooms with full bath. A canvas of custom details enhances the entire living space indirect recessed and modern lighting fixtures, Brazilian black granite, Pennsylvania flagstone, built-in speakers, shelving and seating, plus a security system, 6-zone HVAC, laundry chute, green low VOC paint, filtration at kitchen and pool house sinks, copper ion filtration at pool and much more. A large motorcourt for 7+ cars extends the 3-car direct garage space. A rare architectural find in prime Brentwood, completely congruent with its sublime setting.
