Property description

Hidden from the street view, this walled and secured urban villa features a truly unique indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Upon entering the home, the city disappears and the feeling of relaxation prevails. You become present to the water features, gardens and pools. The home is designed with open and flowing interior space, integrated to the outdoor areas through glass and retracting doors, thus perfectly incorporating the Southern California indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Sleek yet elegantly warm and cozy, this contemporary design features a large entrance courtyard, a spacious living and dining area with hardwood floors. The kitchen-den opens to the pool and patio highlighted by an outdoor living room and a separate guesthouse -- which is the third bedroom and bath with kitchenette. Throughout, the stylish furnishings are accented by fine art, exotic planting and designer lighting and color scheme. Flat screen televisions are located in the kitchen-den and each of the bedrooms.

Both the living room and the rear outdoor living room have working fireplaces and comfortable furnishings to relax on your lazy vacation days. The open floor plan leads from the entrance courtyard -- which is an outdoor living room -- though a wall of glass doors to the living room and the raised dining area. The flow continues to the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. It features an island which includes a bar separating the kitchen from the relaxed den which opens through french doors to the outdoor living room and pool. Lush greenery and artworks define the huge outdoor room. On one side is an outdoor covered seating area which is an ideal setting for partying and alfresco dining. Another area, raised slightly above the pool, provides chaises to relax by the pool. A side patio provides a barbecue and fresh herbs to clip for your gourmet dining.

Bedrooms in the main house include comfortable seating areas, carpeted floors and large closets. The master bedroom opens to the pool and rear outdoor living room through French doors and it includes an en suite bathroom with a sunken, spa tub, shower and steam. A washer and dryer are concealed and located on the bedroom hallway.

Central air provides added comfort, and the pool and spa can be heated. Uncovered parking is provided for two cars in tandem. Street parking is available for guests.The property is gated for added privacy and security.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: I have a great interest in interior design and architecture. Having traveled a great deal, I have come to appreciate certain design styles and spacial configuration in homes, especially with the courtyard homes of colonial Mexico. When I moved to Southern California, the perfect climate became an additional motivator to explore outdoor living design.

Why Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
This particular house, I simply call Genesee. It was the fourth property which I had purchased and renovated in the area and, due to circumstance, became the property where I chose to live. Originally a duplex, Genesee was completely renovated and converted to a single family home. The swimming pool and outdoor living features were added within the last 4 years, but have become the defining elements for the lifestyle associated with Genesee.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When at Genesee, you will naturally feel drawn to the water of the swimming pool. The salt waters of the pool are always warm due to the solar heating system. The gardens surrounding the pool are tropical and full of exotic surpasses, including pleasurable fragrances. An outdoor fireplace adjacent to the swimming pool provides the opportunity to further enhance the exotic feel of the backyard to that of a near spiritual experience.
