Skinner is best known for contributing to the glitz and glam of the neighborhood (but has pared-down his design features at least once in his career.) He built this mid-century masterpiece in 1962 on a quiet cul-de-sac in the coveted Beverly Hill’s Trousdale Estates. It’s a neighborhood known for its collection of architecturally significant homes and high-profile residents.
This entertainer’s dream home was recently updated with the finest modern luxuries while remaining true to its original era. Jaw dropping features include two-story glass walls in the living room, reaching 22 feet, and a fantastic double sided fireplace. Skinner cleverly designed the fireplace chimney to double as a wall sectioning off the second story and as an architectural detail composed of two simple white rectangles, one superimposed upon the other.
On the other side of the fireplace is the formal dining room overlooking the lush hillside and a gourmet kitchen equipped with every conceivable amenity, including an attached family room.
A swoon-worthy master suite has a lovely sitting area and an enormous walk in closet. The richly appointed master bath rivals the finest resorts with dual vanity sinks, Toto washlets, steam shower with skylight and oversized soaking tub. Finishes include white honed marble, terrazzo floors and custom handcrafted cabinets.
Sited on nearly-one-acre the grounds are filled with mature trees and tropical flora and fauna. And let’s not forget that sparkling blue pool and spa.
Last sold in 2015 for $11 million this home returned to the market in 2016 with a price tag of nearly $13 million. The asking price is now $11,450,000.
