Exploring the most exceptional properties in premier destinations across the globe.
Los Angeles is known for its famous residents and as such, many homes throughout the city require a certain level of privacy. Thankfully, the City of Angels is well-supplied with private enclaves that offer such a degree of quiet. Tucked away in the hills, the neighborhood of Encino has quickly grown into one of the most desirable locations for high-profile homebuyers, in search of spacious properties and tranquility while still being in proximity to the heart of the city. This nearly 15,000-square-foot estate showcases the pinnacle of what Encino has to offer.
Completed in 2019, the Royal Oaks property has since received several upgrades, the majority of which are health-focused, including the addition of saunas, a cold plunge and a massage room. These wellness amenities complemented by the home’s clean, calming interior make for peaceful living.
A motif of organic accents runs throughout the six-bedroom estate, in particular, warm wood adorns the floors, walls and facade. High ceilings and movable walls of glass provide an open, breathable feel to the main living areas.
Despite the minimalist design, the property hosts maximized amenity spaces, such as a state-of-the-art home theater, a professional recording studio and a British-style pub. Seamlessly blended yet unto themselves, grand living areas frame the estate’s impressive, central outdoor space, complete with a swimmer’s pool, verdant lawn and multiple patios.
Upstairs, the primary suite is a private retreat, with massive walk-in closets, a spa-like bathroom and a wraparound terrace. Other highlights include a wine cellar, gym and security booth.
