Offered for the first time in 15 years: 8724 St Ives drive, the former residence of legendary photographer Herb Ritts is hidden away on a secluded cul-de-sac in the hills above Sunset Blvd. The estate seamlessly melds the best of mid-century and art deco design into a sophisticated, serene, and elegant sanctuary. Pass through the unassuming white-walled gate to a large, enclosed lawn, and into the quintessential southern California lifestyle. Set on a meticulously landscaped half-acre true promontory with 180 views from the Griffith Park observatory across the city to the ocean. The house features 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and a grand chef's kitchen with custom cherry wood cabinetry, Sub Zero, and Viking appliances. A lounge with built in sofas and wine fridge extends the kitchen into an additional entertaining space. The public rooms are all situated on the entry floor, surrounded by a large deck with double French doors that completely open the walls to maximize the indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The library, a second living room, hides a full home theater with motorized screen, surround sound, and professional projector, all invisibly installed. Soft and subtle architectural lines evoke a calm and peaceful artistry. Privately tucked away downstairs are 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. There is a separate au-pair/housekeeper's suite with its own external door off the side entrance. The yard features specimen trees, a black bottom pool, and cabana with kitchen and full bath. These homes are rarely seen in the Hollywood hills anymore. A perfect retreat from the bustle of daily life giving the homeowners security, privacy, and luxury. Commence festivities and host intimate gatherings for family and friends or large VIP star-studded soirees as you enjoy sweeping unobstructed city lights and forever ocean views.
