Designer perfect French Normandy 2 minutes to Sunset. Grand living room and study with 2 fireplaces, elegant formal dining room with city views, outstanding chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances with separate family/breakfast area. All main rooms featuring french doors leading to the picturesque courtyard and poolside. Master suite up with marble bath/spa shower, his and her walk-in closets. 2 additional bedrooms and guest bath up. Lower level with spacious bedroom/bath (perfect for convertible media room/guest). Separate exquisite guest house with separate entry. Exquisite and private with no expense spared.

At over $1,100 per square foot this house is definitely on the high end, which is why I have waited a month since it was originally listed to deem this house a ‘Hot Property of the Week’ it definitely has a lot of pros and cons.

In my personal opinion, I think this house is definitely on the high end, and once you get into the $5,000,000+ price range and you are looking at traditional family friendly homes, most look in Beverly Hills. Not only can you find a nice house in the flats, you can take advantage of the fabulous Beverly Hills school system, sidewalks to push strollers, fantastic shopping and the general community which is a very strong part of Beverly Hills living. Just last night I went to a birthday dinner for a guy whose best friends at his 22nd birthday were the friends he met in Elementary school. I don’t think you’ll find those sort of relationships outside of the Beverly Hills school system (it didn’t hurt that all the parents are good friends).

All that being said, this house is my ‘Hot Property of the Week’ because I would kill to live in this house. For two years now I’ve driven past this house and dreamed of seeing inside it. This house to me is the perfect blend of traditional and contemporary. The location is hip and young, and the interior of this house works for a young professional couple looking to living in the hills and entertain every night (the plentiful off street parking also helps) or a family looking for a completely move in ready home.

This house is the perfect home for someone looking for a move-in ready house and who wants something a little more edgy than a traditional Beverly Hills house.

Take a look at these pictures and let us know what you think of this stunner…
