Sherman Oaks house description

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Kingdom

As you make the winding climb up Mulholland Drive you’ll soar effortlessly above L.A. traffic and disappear into the hills. Enveloped by serenity, this spacious estate is a hidden palace on a secluded side street, surrounded by incredible vistas and hills as far as the eye can see. Fan out from your tranquil kingdom and it’s a short drive to the centre of town, where vendors and chefs, masseurs and stylists await you on bended knee.

Emperor of his throne

An investor and father of three, your host has a journeying soul that takes him from the golf course to the mountains - that is, when he’s not traversing the globe. His travels in East Asia are evidenced in simple hints throughout the home, from lanterns with curved roofs to intricately painted porcelain as delicate as calligraphy.

Your imperial palace

A balance between contemporary American comfort and Chinese allure, this home is the perfect yin to a weary traveller’s yang, with plenty of room. Rest your shoes on the rug at the front entry and take your tea in the generous breakfast nook. The modern open kitchen features storage fit for an army - and you’ve got one, with several Terra Cotta Warriors providing protection throughout the home. The master bedroom suite offers a tranquil haven in which to meditate, while its glass-enclosed tub resembles a traditional Chinese hot spring, complete with a view of the treetops. A second bedroom inspires strength, love and healing with a collection of jade by its bedside; the family room’s cranes promote both health and happiness. If the feng shui inside ever threatens to usurp your sense of calm, circumvent the great walls within and escape to the patio, stride across the wide front lawn, dip yourself in the inviting pool and drink in the sweeping views of the hills and the San Fernando Valley beyond.

Renew your Chi

While the immediate neighbourhood is not a bustling hot pot of activity, the hills of Bel Air offer myriad opportunities to hike among the hummingbirds, which frequent the lush foliage of the region. However, a short scenic drive will lead you to the restaurants, theatres and shopping for which nearby places like Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and the mystical Valley are renowned.
