About the Home

The Green Oak residence exudes inspiration in each room through its vibrant celebration of lightness, beauty, and nature. 

This secluded 3.500+ sf gated residence invites the outdoors in- blue stone tile flows seamlessly from the expansive cedar-sided front porch into the voluminous entry and foyer. Clad windows with Douglas fir interiors usher in views of dusty chaparral, native surrounding, and verdant greenery from each room. 

The chef's kitchen features a blend of nature and technology: marble back splash and counters, hand distressed white oak cabinetry, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliance package. Walk-in pantry, large island, and open shelving provide ample storage and space to display a curated collection of pottery and cookware. 

Down the hallway is the powder bath with unique hand cut wooden block accent wall. The den, with French doors opening on to the front porch, features wet bar with shelving and custom lime wash and roman clay paint back splash. 

The formal living room and office space are separated by a dual sided, cement tile fireplace. Sunny, south facing dining room with white oak ceiling and 6-panel accordion doors opens to the resort-like entertaining backyard with new 28' saltwater pool. All outdoor spaces have been sites for privacy, with hedges and mature landscaping framing grassy front and back yards. Wraparound redwood decking sets a sexy backdrop for entertaining, complete with a poolside lounge area, built-in BBQ, and dining area. 

Up the grand staircase, the second story boasts four private living quarters. Three family bedrooms all with en suite baths and custom closets are thoughtfully placed to enhance views and privacy. A utility room with a bright embankment of windows and lots of custom cabinetry makes even routine tasks feel special. 

The master suite features unobstructed views of hilly Griffith Park, a stunning fireplace with handmade concrete tiling, oversized walk in closet with custom built-ins, and bathroom with shower, modern circular tub, and white oak dual sink vanity. 

The craftsmanship is in the details of this truly organic vision of what modern living can be.
