Maison Du Soleil, one of Los Angeles’ most spectacular estates, sits elegantly on three picturesque acres in Holmby Hills – the crown jewel of LA’s “Platinum Triangle”.
Originally designed in the 1930s by legendary architect Paul Williams, who helped shape the landscape of classic Hollywood by designing homes for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball and Danny Thomas, the iconic 60-room residence adeptly merges classic architecture with contemporary design and modern lifestyle.
The 30,000 square foot estate comprises 17 bedrooms, 22 baths and every amenity imaginable. With all of its scale and grandeur, however, there is a warm, welcoming intimacy to every corner of the home, making it a noble retreat for family life and a remarkable setting for large-scale entertaining.
The modern, open floor-plan seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living, with every room enjoying and drawing in the outdoors and capturing commanding views of the resplendent grounds, which feature five distinctly enchanting gardens (French, Japanese, English, Moroccan and herb).
The unparalleled acreage also plays host to a private, glass-enclosed tennis court with an elevated viewing box; a glass-ceilinged greenhouse which has been converted into a well-equipped fitness room; and a second greenhouse for organic produce.
The endless grassy yard rolls out to the purified, zero-edged pool and to the adjacent Moroccan Bath House – a traditional hamam—replete with sauna, steam shower and spa.
The resort-style setting, which captures dazzling city views, is meant for days spent lounging poolside, and unforgettable evening soirées under the stars.
The magnificent master suite features boutique-like dressing rooms and spa-like bathrooms; the kitchen would envy any “iron chef”, with its walk-in refrigerator, freezer and china cabinet; the 6,000 square foot movie theatre – one of the city’s best – offers its own snack and popcorn bar; every master of industry will covet the 2,500 square foot office; and separate and distinct guest quarters situated around the property afford guests a serene retreat.
The ultra-private, gated estate is situated at the end of a hedge-lined, sweeping drive, which spills into the circular motor-court yielding space for a car collector’s garage and providing a fitting, prestigious welcome to this one-of-a-kind property.
