Showcasing incredible views of the Santa Monica Mountains, 971 Linda Flora is a newly-constructed custom home in the foothills of Bel-Air.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom residence was designed with a playful quality, incorporating a mix of eye-catching patterns and materials that set it apart from the cookie-cutter spec houses that dominate LA’s luxury market.
Entering through an oversized, pivoting front door, you’re welcomed into a light-filled foyer with unobstructed sight lines that extend all the way to the outdoors. The open-plan main floor is characterized by soaring, wood-toned ceilings, stained concrete floors, and operable Otiima doors that create seamless indoor/outdoor transitions.
A whimsical light fixture is the focal point of the large-scale living room, which offers a linear fireplace and double-height ceilings. The adjacent chef’s kitchen boasts dual islands, custom lighting, Gaggenau appliances, and a book-matched Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble backsplash that adds dramatic movement with its veining.
The dining room is luxuriously laid-back, featuring a wet bar, reeded glass cabinets, and a walkout to an outdoor patio with a fire pit. There’s plenty of space for storing serveware and dinner guests will be treated to expansive mountain vistas.
The home office includes rich wood paneling, an abundance of built-in shelves and a sizable desk. A large picture window draws in ample natural light and the seating area provides a sophisticated Zoom background.
There are three secondary bedrooms and a private guest suite, each with their own sense of style. One of the bedrooms is staged as a young girl’s room, complete with an ensuite bath that touts a wraparound vanity and a colorful, terrazzo-clad wet room.
Another bedroom comprises custom-built bunk beds with a climbing wall in lieu of a ladder, plus a studying niche for completing homework assignments.
The master suite flaunts floor-to-ceiling glass windows, wide plank European oak floors, and a sprawling terrace that overlooks the canyon below. A boutique-inspired walk-in closet features an accessories island, window seat, and a marble-topped vanity.
The ensuite bath is decked out in large-format marble tile, complete with a deep soaking tub, frameless glass shower and a floating double vanity.
The home’s lower level is primed for entertaining with a Vintage Cellar wine room, gym, games area, and a state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos-certified home theater that can seat up to 18 people. It comes equipped with a Barco Prometheus 3 projector, which retails for over $250,000 and offers crystal clear 4K resolution.
The private backyard caters an infinity-edge saltwater pool with solar heating, an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue, fire pit lounge, alfresco dining area, and a covered loggia with infrared heating for chilly evenings.
Crestron provides integrated smart home technology, controlling security, lighting, audio and video systems, and access controls. Additional home features include a three-car garage, second-floor laundry room and maid’s quarters.
