Taylor Hahn and Amanda Leigh, the talented minds behind House of Rolison, embarked on a transformative journey with a 1920s Spanish Mediterranean-style house nestled in Beverly Hills’ Coldwater Canyon enclave. Charmed by its secluded location on a private flag lot set away from the bustling street, they saw boundless potential in the property, deeming it ideal for a substantial rejuvenation.
Having acquired the property in May for approximately $2.4 million, the design/build duo set about breathing new life into this historical gem, infusing it with a contemporary essence while meticulously preserving its timeless character. Now, after nearly seven months of meticulous renovation, this stunningly reimagined residence graces the market, poised to fetch just under $4.2 million.
Secluded by towering hedges and iron gates, the home rests on over an acre of land adorned with olive trees. Originally constructed in 1924, the property has undergone a striking transformation. The living space spans nearly 3,400 square feet across two levels, showcasing stone walls and floors, custom-stained cedar ceilings, and an eclectic blend of original and imported light fixtures. A brand-new terracotta roof adds to its allure.
Upon entry through an imported wood door from Italy, rustic yet modern interiors unfold. The living room boasts a stucco fireplace and French doors leading to a covered balcony, while a formal dining room adorned with a vaulted ceiling exudes elegance. The kitchen, a focal point, features oak cabinetry, Nero Marquina marble countertops, brass fixtures, a central island with white Macaubas quartzite, skylights, and an Ilve range. A breakfast nook with a bespoke table and banquette seating complement the kitchen’s bold style.
The main floor hosts two bedrooms, a full bath, and a powder room adorned with Venetian plaster walls and an imported marble sink. Upstairs, the master retreat stands out with a domed light fixture, a balcony offering hillside views, and a lavish marble bath equipped with dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub, and a rainfall shower.
The lower level, boasting its entrance and original stone floors, presents a versatile space that can function as an entertainment area, an additional primary suite, or a guest unit. Outside, the picturesque grounds feature an al fresco dining terrace with a pizza oven and a spacious grassy lawn perfect for a future pool (plans included). A two-car garage and ample driveway parking for up to three vehicles complete this exquisite property.
The meticulously refurbished estate stands as a testament to modern luxury intertwined with historic allure, offering a sophisticated retreat in the heart of Beverly Hills.
