Sloping LA Mansion Comes With 20-Car Gallery on the Roof to Help You Show Off
14 May 2020 - autoevolution
Nothing screams privacy like a living compound on top of a hill in a luxury residential neighborhood, surrounded by nothing else but your own, organic, homegrown fruit trees, and stunning 180-degree views. Just like nothing screams baller status than a 20-car gallery on the roof, to help you show off.
A 2019 mansion in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California, is delivering on both these counts. It's a huge, three-story property with everything from a glass-bottom infinity pool to an entire level dedicated to wellness and sports, a wine cellar, a personal cinema, and plenty of space for your car collection.
Working on the assumption that most car collectors would want to show off their prized possessions, the property at 12255 Sky Lane offers a 20-car gallery on the roof, with six additional parking spots underground, right below the gallery.
Of course, this won't do much in terms of keeping said prized possessions in the impeccable state you want them to be, but at the very least it will allow you to show off. Or, if collecting cars is not your thing, it will make your home the ideal place to hang out because of all the available parking space.
Access into the compound is done through the roof. You can either take the elevator from the car gallery, down to one of the three levels below, or you can drive the car down the marble driveway, to the underground parking.
Two separate elevators are available on site, so you won't have to do much walking if you don't want to – given the sprawling estate, walking alone would constitute a form of working out and the included gym would be rendered pointless.
With 16,700 square feet (1,551 square meters) of interior space and over 10,000 square feet (929 square meters) of outdoor space, this compound is listed as a family home. It has seven bedrooms and 11 baths, is furnished in a combination of wood, stone, marble and metal that gives it a very sophisticated feel, and as you can see in the video available at the bottom of the page, is visually arresting in every aspect.
All bedrooms come with ensuites (where, again, marble is used generously) and views of the surrounding area. From the side of the infinity pool, you can see all the way to downtown Los Angeles, the nearby snow-capped mountains or down to the ocean.
"These unmatched views are available from virtually every room in the house, while the cutting edge, high quality, interior design is equally as breathtaking. As the ultimate blend of technology, engineering and design, the property provides the best in privacy, comfort, and luxury," the listing with Douglas Elliman reads.
Interior design and art pieces (including a couple of hand-carved walnut bars) aside, the house offers everything you could possibly want to never make you go outside. Unless it's for a dip in that infinity pool.
There's a private cinema with seating for up to 15 people, a 650-bottle wine cellar and a lounge area where you can chill with friends and sip from said wine, a full-sized gym, terraces on every room, a barbecue place, a couple of bars, a professional-grade kitchen, an entertainment room, and generous lounge areas for a variety of activities, whether they revolve around reading a book or binge-watching your favorite series.
If this isn't enough to pique your interest, Douglas Elliman stresses the focus on wellness in building the compound: it comes with a Delos Darwin wellness system, integrated with Crestron, for optimizing air purifying and lighting (with Circadian lighting system), and a water purification system. Every other system inside is digitalized, so you have everything from shutters to security monitoring at your control on your phone.
"This luxurious sanctuary was designed for the ultimate Southern California lifestyle," the agency says.
The ultimate Southern California lifestyle comes at price to match: an asking $29,995,000. Then again, if you can afford to have 20 of your cars perched on the roof of your house just for show, it's probably not that big a deal for you.
