The most recent addition to the luxury portfolio of noted architect Zoltan Pali and award-winning builder Dugally Oberfeld, this new modern mansion stuns from the outset with its distinct wing shape paying homage to its Nightingale Drive locale — get it? — amid the Hollywood Hills’ famed Bird Streets section. The completion of this property marks the duo’s fourth home in the neighborhood and third on the block, this one an impressive architectural masterpiece clad in anodized aluminum and glass, paired with seamless indoor-outdoor environs punctuated by a sweeping skylight, copious comforts and lushly landscaped grounds offering jaw-dropping scenery.
“My favorite feature of this spectacular new contemporary estate is the 60-foot retractable, dimmable skylight that runs the width of the property,” says James Harris, who is co-listing the home with David Parnes and Mauricio Umansky, all of The Agency. “The property is masterfully positioned to maximize far-reaching canyon, city and water views, while landscaped for absolute privacy.”
Nestled on a hillside promontory, in a secluded cul-de-sac near the Sunset Strip, the gated home features 11,000-plus square feet of open and light-filled living space on two levels rife with white oak and limestone flooring, concrete walls, and automated Lutron and Savant systems. Among the first-floor highlights: a soaring skylight atrium with glass flooring, along with a Poliform kitchen outfitted with Gagganeau appliances (connected via a dumbwaiter to a Poliform catering kitchen below sporting two glass wine enclosures with storage for 352 bottles); and sumptuous master retreat earmarked by a custom walnut bed from Italy, designer showroom closet and luxe marble-clad bath.
On the lower level, a hand-carved, textured wood and glass wall opens to reveal a plush media room, and a wellness spa with sauna, steam and massage rooms, a gym and ultra-relaxing saltwater float pod. Topping it all off? A resort-like yard hosting cantilevered lounging and dining terraces overlooking a fire-pit lounge with cascading water wall, and an ultra-impressive pool with Baja shelf, spa and stainless-steel floating lily pad.
“From the moment I stepped into the house, I was blown away from the architecture, design and build,” says Umansky. “One of my favorite features is the long 106-foot swimming pool that is the focal point of the backyard, with a 360-infinity edge that flows into these spectacular views of the city.”
