Home of the Week: Bel-Air Masterwork With Sweeping Views
Poised atop a double-gated promontory, three wings of mirrored, translucent, and clear glass overlook panoramic 360-degree vistas of the canyons, downtown skyline, and ocean.
This is 11490 Orum Road, a tour de force by architect Zoltan Pali with every detail designed for opulent, exhilarating living. Sensitively married with the surrounding environment, the home’s ultramodern open-plan spaces flow seamlessly from indoors to out via floor-to-ceiling walls of glass and sliding doors that open to stunning view decks and patios.
A blend of limestone, travertine, and quartzite, accented by rift-sawn white oak paneling and white oak floors, creates warmth and functionality together with the ultimate in luxury.
Encompassing some 18,850 square feet, the home has nine bedrooms, 10 full baths, and five half baths. The gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry is equipped with Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Miele appliances.
The outside entertainment area is magical, surrounded by sweeping city views from every angle. Highlights include a summer kitchen, an alfresco dining table, two firepits, and an LED-lit swimming pool and spa. Indoor amenities include a custom cedar sauna, a luxurious home theater, a gym, and a 1,000-bottle wine room.
