You do not have to compromise on quality or location when it comes to this $ 48 million masterpiece 8201 Bellgave Square. The home is next to its muse, Steel housingwhich was built by the late legendary architect Pierre Koenigand the famous luxury developer Clive Robertson was inspired by Koenig’s distinctive architectural style of modern glass and steel housing when it conceptualized this new building.

Robertson spearheaded the development with the world-renowned South African architectural firm SAOTA to create a jewelry box-like “floating” home located across the Sunset Strip. It is located on the last promontory in the area and offers a new, rare chance to own a home with 270-degree views of downtown Los Angeles, Century City and the Griffith Observatory.

“Such a prospect is not just coming to market anymore, especially after the bullish market we saw in 2021,” says co-listing agent Branden Williams at Beverly Hills Estates. “Having such an amazing asset like this is a slam dunk for buyers looking for something that will appreciate over time.”

The two-storey home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two powder rooms, spanning a total of 3,600 square meters, and is located on a 23,307 square meter plot surrounded by imported mature olive trees and clean countryside. The main suite is particularly special as it has its own private terrace with sun loungers, a spa-like bathroom with a free-standing bath and a dreamy walk-in closet.

The home’s emphasis on indoor-outdoor living is evident in all rooms, which have either floor-to-ceiling windows or sliding glass doors that open out to spacious outdoor decks on both floors. During the day there are lights in every room and at night you will be rewarded with a sparkling skyline.

The future buyer will appreciate how undeniably spacious and bright the home feels thanks to high ceilings and glass accents as well as neutrally colored materials imported from all over the globe. The exterior is a beautiful Italian travertine with a split face, which was erupted from Bagni di Tivolli 12 miles from Rome; it is the same quarry that was used to build the Vatican and the Colosseum. Inside, there are long plank floors, French white oak floors, hand-picked for no knots, as well as Italian stone and star fire glass to remove any green tint. There are also custom cabinets and custom-made doors.

Outside you will find a heated pool and spa as well as several outdoor lounge areas. Perfect for entertaining, the home also has a barbecue, wet bar and a walk-in wine cellar. There is also plenty of wall space to showcase an impressive art collection.

“A curated lifestyle is what buyers in this hot market are looking for when buying a major investment,” says co-noting agent Rayni Williams. “This home is a perfect culmination of what I love working with: sophisticated style, architecture, luxury, country and views.”

The home is co-listed by Branden and Rayni Williams of Williams & Williams at Beverly Hills Estates and Tyrone McKillen of Plus Real Estate Group at Compass.
