Los Angeles house description

Welcome to Casa Del Sol..!!!.
This beautifully designed spacious 1500 square foot home on the top floor of an architecturally authentic, 1920’s Spanish duplex will provide you with an elegant, classic Hollywood experience with a sleek modern twist. You can take advantage of the temperate Southern California climate as you relax with your morning coffee and paper on the chaise in the large private balcony which looks out into the Spanish homes and palm trees that welcome you
to Los Angeles.

When coming up to the home you’ll instantly be captivated by the strong lines of the authentic Spanish architecture painted the color of our Southern California sunshine giving it the name: 'Casa Del Sol'.

The entrance foyer is welcoming and glows at night with the light emanating from the designer chandelier that reflects against the mirror clad entrance wall and illuminates the stairs that will lead you up to the front door.

The design theme is: ''Designer Hollywood Glamour'
The sleek IDRISI DESIGN interiors boast dramatic open living spaces, with elegant dining area, designer lighting, warm tone colors, bright light, spacious, large windows, original fireplace, and beautiful hardwood floors.

Dressed with sleek elegant designer furnishings as iconic as Hollywood itself, you’ll feel comfortable and pampered amid the Original IDRISI DESIGN art mixed in with the black and white photography of classic Hollywood stars circa 1920's - 1940's era such as Veronica Lake, Jean Harlow, Lana Turner, Betty Davis, Cary Grant, Joan Crawford, Rita Hayworth, Paul Newman and other stars that sparkled in this City during the same era as the home itself.

The open living room area showcases a Designer Karim Rashid wave sofa bench, the Knoll Bertoia wire lounge chair, pop art, a red swivel lounge chair and accent pillows.
The open dining room features thick crown moldings, large framed mirrors and The iconic white Carrara marble Knoll Saarinen dining table which is the perfect place for a romantic and stylish dinner.

The brightly lit office area contains a sleek glass desk and The iconic Eames chair that can be used to check e-mail via wireless internet connection provided for free. Behind the desk sits The iconic white glossy 'Felt Chair'' designed by Marc Newsom backlit by a glowing lucite light-bench that showcases colored vases. This set up is perfect for someone visiting Los Angeles for business and pleasure.
My 20 years of Architectural design experience in both corporate interiors and residential influenced the design, therefore, the stylish open living areas are designed to be multi-functional and are perfect for business meetings using the Knoll table as a conference table and the living area as lounge in addition to the office area. The location is perfect because the high-rise office buildings of the Mid Wilshire business district is just a few blocks away, yet our street is very quite and peaceful, used by mostly local residents only. This allows traveling working parents to bring the family and turn a business trip into a vacation.

Enjoy your breakfast and read the newspaper in the breakfast area set just off the kitchen with a view of the gardens in the back. Or relax on the white sectional sofa beds and watch movies on the flat screen TV with cable channels.

The fully stocked, sleek gourmet kitchen has large granite countertops providing plenty of space for cooking, serving and entertaining. Complete with appliances including stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. Off to the side, there is a full laundry area with a washer, dryer, folding area and iron.

Retreat to the large master bedroom to join Jean Harlow and Lana Turner for an art viewing and relax in any one of the 2 different seating areas. A sofa with accent pillows upholstered with fabrics that display the bold graphics designed by Architect Verner Panton, then 2 retro chairs and a pink accent table under framed photos of the two Starlets.
Unpack using the large walk-in closet, close the black-out drapes to block the sunny western exposed windows, then lay down for a nap on a custom designed oversized California king-sized bed.

Adjacent to the master bedroom you will find a spacious bathroom with large granite top double sink vanity, large framed mirrors, 5 mirrored wall cabinets, designer sconces and linen closets filled with plush white towels.

The second bedroom is peaceful and offers a perfect place to unwind from a day of exploring Los Angeles’ many sights. It has a walk in closet plus additional floor to ceiling mirrored door wardrobes on 2 walls with interior closet organizers designed to accommodate the wardrobe of any ambitious shopaholic and fashionista that comes into town on a mission to shop.

In keeping with my design philosophy of 'Multi-functional living spaces'; Designing rooms that can change, transform and adopt to the different needs of the people living in them. While keeping a lower nightly rate, I designed entire front living area so that it can be converted into a children's sleeping area which is perfect for 3 children who enjoy watching movies and having fun without disturbing the 4 adults while they are having a quite evening in the master bedroom and the guest bedroom.
Using the easy 'Click-Clack' technology, the sleek white sectional sofa bed with chrome legs converts into a full size bed for 2 children to sleep with minimal effort by simply rotating the sofa-back flat down with 2 easy steps; first rotate it slightly forward until it 'clicks' to release the lock, then rotate it the other way until it aligns with the seat and 'clacks'. The other white sofa bed converts into a twin size bed to sleep one more child using the same easy method. Extra pillows, sheets and blankets are provided and there is also a closet for the children's belongings which they can access from the hallway. The rear entrance and back stairs that lead to the garden can be used as the main exit and entrance.
The entire process takes only minutes and you will have an additional third bedroom and 3 extra sleeping areas for the price of a 2 bedroom home.
This is perfect for 2 families with children on a tight budget because the rent suddenly becomes very affordable when it is divided among 2 families. Or divide the rent among 7 people and spend the extra cash savings on shopping and tourist attractions instead of expensive hotel bills.

My goal, as a budget sensitive Architect Designer is to offer Designer Luxury and original art at an affordable price for everyone to enjoy and experience. But still have enough cash savings to tour our amazing City of Angeles.

As you descend the back stairs, you will instantly be captivated by its enormous, eco friendly private back yard filled with a variety of fruit trees. Complete privacy is provided thanks to a very tall and thick row of multi-colored floral Bougainvillea vines on one side and a very tall row of trees on the other.
We are pet friendly animal lovers and the backyard areas are perfect for your loved ones to play.
The different patios and seating areas offer vignettes and provide a multitude of ways to enjoy the outdoors. These outdoor areas are anchored by a large orange tree that offers you shade during the day and watches over you as you dine at night under the stars using the teak wood dining table and chairs. Or just take your cash savings and dine out WITH the Hollywood stars in Glamorous Hollywood Style.!!
