Exuding timeless elegance, 22 Oakmont Drive is a welcome alternative to the ultra-modern, new construction homes typically found in Los Angeles.
The eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom residence by custom home builder Heltzer Development Group lnc hit the market last week for $25,900,000. The exterior is European Farmhouse-inspired, combining natural stone, board and batten siding, black-framed windows and standing seam metal roofing. A gated driveway covered with oversized, permeable concrete pavers leads the way to an attached, three-car garage with carriage-style doors.
A handsome entry door opens onto a double-height foyer with a curvilinear staircase and white oak hardwood flooring laid in a herringbone pattern. Off to the right is a formal living room with coffered ceilings, a gas fireplace, and a marble-topped bar featuring an antiqued glass mirror backsplash.
Providing enough space for an eight-seater table, the dining room is anchored by a sculptural chandelier and offers a convenient connection to the chef’s kitchen. Heading down the hallway, you’ll discover an open-concept space designed for cooking, eating and entertaining. The family room is a master class in laid-back luxury, complete with a cozy fireplace, built-in shelving, and a flatscreen TV disguised by a dark surround.
Euroline sliding doors deliver an indoor/outdoor experience, beckoning residents to step onto the covered patio that runs the entire length of the home. There’s an outdoor fireplace with a TV at one end of the patio and a large dining space at the other with areas for lounge furniture in between. The lushly landscaped, flat backyard includes a pool and spa as well as an outdoor kitchen with bar seating for four.
Back inside, the chef’s kitchen is replete with architectural details, ranging from the exposed wood beams to the glass-front cabinets and custom-designed island. High-end Wolf and Subzero appliances are paired with matte black plumbing fixtures and chrome hardware. The show stopping marble backsplash adds a sense of movement to the space and is repeated in the countertops and kitchen island.
Casual meals can be eaten in the light-filled breakfast nook, and a built-in workspace surrounded by cabinets provides the perfect spot for a kids’ homework station. Tucked away behind the kitchen is a den that’s currently staged as a lounge area with a walkout to the covered patio. The first floor also boasts a secluded home office with its own powder room, painted a deep shade of green.
Upstairs, there are several bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, some showcasing vaulted ceilings. The expansive owner’s retreat is surrounded by windows, capturing “explosive views not typically found in Brentwood Park.” There’s a separate sitting room and access to a private terrace, plus two custom walk-in closets appointed with white and woodgrain cabinetry.
The ensuite bathroom is clad with bookmatched slabs of marble, finished with a frameless glass shower, freestanding soaker tub, separate water closet, and two wraparound vanities — one featuring an enviable glam station.
The home’s lower level is primed for entertaining, sporting billiards and poker tables, comfortable lounge seating, and a restaurant-style bar with an impressive walk-in wine room. The theatre is outfitted with a projection screen and tiered seating, while the fitness studio offers a wall of mirrors and plenty of space for working with a personal trainer. Meantime, the laundry room is equipped with four machines and ample storage space for all your cleaning needs.
Agent Morgan Trent of Aaron Kirman Group holds the listing for 22 Oakmont Drive. The home’s future owners will live in proximity to local schools, golf courses, hiking trails, The Getty and Brentwood Village.
