|Exquisite Modern Villa with Eye-Catching Details in the Hollywood Hills|
Designed by LA-based interior designer Angie Thornbury, this imposing 7.000 square foot home sits high atop the Hollywood Hills, above the famed Sunset Strip. According to the architects, “the house was built from the ground-up and has views from Downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific ocean. One of the most unique features of the home are the glass floor panels that allow you to peer down, into a two-story, stark white bar and sapphire blue wine cellar. There’s also an elevator that connects the first floor to the lower lobby bar/lounge and from this sparkling mirrored space, one enters a cavernous, deep blue theater. The den-like setting with upholstered walls offers cozy lounge seating on the ground floor and exclusive balcony seating above for prime viewing, making this the ultimate entertainment house. Designed as an eco-responsible property, Angie incorporated skylights, transoms and sidelights into every room for natural daylight to light the spaces and thereby eliminate the need for artificial lighting. At nightfall, the striking aesthetics can be lit up through a wireless remote to create lighting scenes.
Other features include a two-story wine cellar that can hold up to 1,000 bottles of wine, a full outdoor kitchen with a wood-burning pizza oven, an automated wardrobe conveyer that can hold up to 800 articles of clothing and even a touch-less urinal for men. The powder room lighting and faucets are motion activated and the mirror surprises with a built-in TV screen. Angie was fortunate to be able to design every aspect of the house, including the structure and mechanicals to the furniture and finish, creating a one-of-a-kind view house. Inspired by classic European styling but tapping American technology and resources, Thornbury is proud to have built this house from the ground up. “This is not just a fast cosmetic redo. The spaces were created with purpose and the aesthetics fell into place.” Enjoy the views this home has to offer (inside and out) and leave your feedback below!
