Sotheby’s International Realty: Mid-Century Contemporary Architectural

Behind the circular driveway, the understated facade is a quiet prelude to the extraordinary beauty of this Mid-Century Contemporary Architectural. With an uncompromising attention to detail, Architect Aleks Istanbullu remodeled and reinvented the home in 2004 with environmentally conscious, non-toxic materials. Beautiful lines, open space, and natural light provide a unique setting for the open common living and dining areas enhanced with FSC and Rainforest Alliance certified BOEN engineered wood floors, and exuding an ambiance of serenity. Through the sustainable Marvin windows and sliding glass doors, the transition from indoor to outdoor virtually disappears, creating clean simplicity and integration with nature. The chef’s kitchen is carefully planned with high-end appliances overlooks the main focal point of the backyard, the saltwater pool with natural beach pebble. To the right of the dramatic corridor are two elegantly appointed suites. The master suite displays a beautiful fireplace, reading nook, and walk-in closet with vanity. Surrounded by a restful palette of Italian blue glass tile, the lovely jetted soaking tub is both relaxing and calming, making the master bath a place of peace and solitude. Beyond the pool, the serene, romantic, and private deep backyard offers multiple outdoor spaces and an array of gorgeous mature trees. The entire property is in impeccable condition and is the perfect example of how creative owners with the input of a sophisticated architect can create a timeless chef d’oeuvre, perfect for California living.
