Extraordinary one of kind masterpiece of artisanship, custom design and superior construction. Every detail and material of this exquisite South of France, Renaissance-inspired villa was thoughtfully selected and skillfully crafted. Majestically situated above Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills this impressive residence offers city to ocean views. Aptly titled “La Bastide”, this distinctive residence presents an ivy-covered facade complimented by distinctive imported blue doors and shutters, centuries old hand-carved stonework and figures, patinaed hardware and iron balcony, and gothic windows recovered from 16th century structures from across Western Europe. Upon entering the home, a magnificent 16th century marble staircase graces a center hall that leads to spectacular sun-drenched salon featuring a 17th/18th century stone fireplace and columns, beamed ceilings with hand painted trompe l’oeil depicting pastoral scenes with tranquil blue skies, and a dazzling 18th century Baccarat chandelier. Antique floors of light colored stone with black cabochons continue throughout the public rooms of the main floor. A series of tall French doors open to an expansive view terrace and an adjacent private pool area accentuated by a stone outdoor Renaissance fireplace and offers ample space for lounging and al fresco dining. A spacious open chef’s kitchen features 18th century imported tiles, antique walnut cabinetry, a center island, a cooktop set into a 16th/17th century stone fireplace, and a hidden dumb waiter. Included on the main level is a generous bedroom suite with views and a private entrance. Upstairs a gracious master bedroom en-suite with a salon showcases 18th century painted and gilded antique panels, a rare 17th century fireplace, high ceilings with trompe l’oeil, and is complete with an elegant master bath featuring 19th century Italian mosaic flooring and gilded bronze cabinets and shower doors. Additionally, there are two lovely guest suites along with an 18th century paneled library that features painted trompe l’oeil books grillage, a stone fireplace, columns from a French chateau, and a Charles X chandelier. A lower level consists of a wine cellar and an artist studio which could also serve as a screening room, gym, or office with a private entrance. From the elegant antique fixtures and panels, imported hand-carved stone appointments to the hand painted trompe l’oeil, “La Bastide” is an incomparable masterpiece of French Renaissance construction and design which offers an intimate setting as well as a showcase for entertaining.
