This truly substantial home is conveniently located in Lower Bel-Air on an unusually expansive, flat parcel in a very special cul-de-sac neighborhood. Sleepy, maturely wooded streets create an oasis in the city here on North Thurston Avenue, moments from UCLA and the fine shopping and dining in nearby Westwood and Brentwood Villages. With undeniable quality and craftsmanship evident at every turn, this custom residence was built in 1997 to exacting standards. The formal entry is grand, voluminous and inviting and like the rest of this wonderful home, is bathed in natural light everywhere. The spacious living room, with its two-story height ceilings and big picture window, takes in views of the yard and opens to the elegant formal dining room, complete with wainscoting and architectural ceiling detail. The family room, warm and comfortable with its fireplace, bar and more wainscoting, also orients out to the yard. The island kitchen is a chef's delight, featuring top appliances, a giant pantry, vast amounts of counterspace, a butler's area, its own breakfast area and a bay window taking in leafy streetside views. There's a wonderful fourth bedroom space, rich in detail with coffered ceilings and gorgeous paneling. This room has an associated bath as well. A stylish powder room and a fabulous laundry room complete the first level. Up a sweeping staircase find a gallery loft landing with plenty of space for books and art and a very pretty seating area. There are three bedrooms upstairs including a massive primary suite featuring a sunny sitting area, an office or nursery, absolutely extraordinary dual baths and vast dual closets. Completing the upper level are two sizable secondary bedrooms, each with great closet space. They share a terrific hall bath. The lower level houses the direct-access two-car garage and an abundance of storage area. There's even a perfect spot for the wine enthusiast with ample space for a storage/tasting area. All three levels are connected by a convenient elevator. The backyard is nothing short of magnificent with its sparkling swimmer's pool and spa set against the backdrop of an impeccably manicured landscape. There are wide, flat grassy expanses, a gazebo and plenty of patios and deck spaces for lounging and dining under the sun and stars. Much like the house itself, the backyard is truly an entertainer's paradise. There is also a separate structure with a kitchen, perfect as a totally separate home office. Attached here is a second two-car garage. All the creature comforts one could ask for, are here, including dual-zone air conditioning/heating and a security system. Inclusion in the highly-sought-after Warner Avenue Elementary School District.
