Art makes us aware of the world we live in, inspires us, and challenges us to consider new possibilities, while delighting us at the same time. It’s not often that the same sense of wonder is triggered by a single family home, but we’ve found one that does just that.
153 North Willaman Drive, a newly completed contemporary home in Beverly Hills, CA — aptly named ‘Gallery House’ for its sleek, art gallery-inspired design — recently came to market with a price tag of $4,495,000. The 4,087-square-foot home sits on a 6,503-square-foot lot, and is being marketed by Lisa Gild of Douglas Elliman.
The elegant and sophisticated home designed by LRG Architects blends modernism with organic materials found in nature, to extraordinary results. The striking, oak-framed box exterior almost looks like it’s floating above ground, in contrast with the exposed concrete foundation that supports it.
Inside, guests are greeted by an art-inspired foyer leading onto a two-story glass atrium that bathes the space in abundant natural light.
The main level features 11-foot-high ceilings and natural stone detailing, making it a perfect space for art lovers and offering plenty of space for art displays.
The home is equipped with all the modern smart home technologies that homebuyers look for nowadays, including Lutron lighting control, Cove lighting and speaker system, air conditioning, IAquaLink technology, state-of-the-art security system, as well as solar panels to generate energy.
The Gallery House features custom fleetwood doors and windows throughout, custom-made white oak cabinetry and floors, and other art-inspired details that seem to be a recurring theme throughout the house — no doubt appealing to the key demographic the designers had in mind when envisioning the space.
The master kitchen is bright, spacious and perfectly appointed, fitted with Miele appliances and Grohe fixtures; there’s also a secondary prep kitchen available.
The Gallery House has a total of four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The master bedroom is a show-stopper in itself, and comes with a walk-in closet with custom veneer wood paneling, a natural stone and bronze Amani fireplace, and a master bathroom with Volakas marble, restoration hardware fixtures, and a steam shower.
The exterior of the house was designed by Beth Edelstein, and features a swimming pool with a 6-foot sheer descent exposed concrete waterfall and spa. The pool and spa are equipped with IAquaLink technology, as well.
If you’re interested in ‘The Gallery House’ and would like to see more of this property, there’s also a virtual tour available on the listing website.
