Newly- Minted Architectural Renovation
This newly-minted renovation of an Architectural home in Encino’s prestigious Clark Gable Estates offers today’s buyer every modern convenience. The home is located south-of-Ventura-Boulevard (but is close enough to walk to all the area has to offer) and is on a quiet cul-de-sac. Black-lacquered double entry doors open to soaring 20-foot-high ceilings and a modern interpretation of a mid-century open floor plan. The impressive two-story living area (with two-story fireplace) anchors the entertaining spaces in the residence. Walls of glass frame mature Jacaranda trees. “Grey Ghost”-hued hardwood floors and “Architectural White”-colored walls give the impression of an art gallery space. Bring your largest canvases—there is plenty of room for your collection! Step up to an elevated informal dining platform that overlooks the home’s living room. Just off of the dining area is the heart that beats inside this house; its family room (with its own fireplace) and the chef’s kitchen. This area is “where it all happens.” An 8-foot-long island (with counter top dining for 4-6), stainless-steel appliances, and plenty of custom cabinet space make this kitchen a stand-out success story. Access to the great outdoors (and sparkling pool) can be had from either the family room or the kitchen through accordion glass doors. A large laundry area (with its own sink) is just off of the kitchen. There is also the first of the home’s SIX bedrooms on the downstairs level. This en-suite room (with private access) is perfect for live-in or long-term guest use. This versatile room could also be a gym or office. There is also a powder room on the ground floor. One of the most impressive of this home’s many features is its master suite. and a spacious wardrobe room is ready for any Clotheshorse (and their partner). A balcony allows a resident to survey their domain (and pool). An elegant master bathroom showcases a free-standing spa tub, a step-in mitered-glass shower, double sinks, and plenty or storage space. De-stress yourself while sitting on a built-in bench in this resort-style shower and turn up the steam! Four other guest rooms share the home’s second story (bringing the house’s total bedroom count to 6). Two of these upstairs guest rooms are—like the one downstairs and the master—en suite, while two discreetly share a bath. Indoor-outdoor living is key here on Ashley Oaks. This home’s outdoor spaces are open and versatile. Anchored by a swimmer’s heated pool, the large lot (over 17,000 sq.ft.) features a fire pit with built-in seating, patios with room for dining and gatherings, and a large grassy lawn. Plenty of outdoor lighting makes this home ready for evenings al fresco. This 4,303 sq.ft. 6-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom renovated home in a five-star Encino location makes south-of-the-boulevard life grand. Close by is shopping, dining, entertainment, and easy access to freeways. Also, just a short drive up the hill and you’re at Mulholland Dr.
