PART TWO: Modern Mansion With Wrap Around Pool and Glass-Walled Garage For $36 Million. (50 pics)

Yesterday I shared with you 36 photos of the spectacular exterior landscaping, incredible wrap-around swimming pool and glass-walled garage at 1201 Laurel Way, a spec home designed by the boutique architecture firm of Whipple Russell that is on the market for $36 million. The home is so impressive and I have so many images, I had to break it into two posts.

Today you will see the interior living spaces, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining, wine storage and more, broken down be section. Beginning with, of course, the entry.

The foyer has a large pivot door:

And looks straight through the living room to the spectacular view outside:

Staircase just off the entry way and glass floor insert:

The glass floor insert just off the entry allows you to see the wine cellar below:

The wine storage has glass doors and ceiling.

So, what do people who can afford a $36 million dollar home choose to drink? In this case, the home is for sale complete with a stocked cellar of a superb Honeymoon Cuvee, a phenomenal Bordeaux blend and an Ultra Premium Napa Valley Cabernet from the exclusive wine label Compliment*:

The home is perfectly designed to feature artwork. A narrow corridor with courtyard-facing glass windows, built-in bench and directional lighting is perfect for showcasing art:

And hallways have directional lighting and unimpeded wall space:

Both the kitchen and dining area have walls that open to the exterior.

The Kitchen:

The Formal Dining area:

The great room has a grand interior entrance, dark wood ceilings and is broken up into multiple seating areas:

Off the greatroom lies an office with built-in shelving:

Floating wood stairs lead to the second floor:

The upstairs master bedroom, which also opens to the exterior, has unsurpassed views of downtown Los Angeles:

And opens to the upper deck:

It has a seating area, work desk and home gym:

The master bath has modern furnishings and a wall mounted tv. And one can admire the view from the freestanding bathtub:

The walk-in closets are to die for:

And, of course, a luxury home in Beverly Hills must have a screening room:

Some of the other bedrooms:

And the other bathrooms:

The $36 million home, which has 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, is represented solely by Mauricio Umansky of The Agency. It is described by Umansky as follows:
"High up among the treetops, on a self-contained Beverly Hills enclosure, lay an architectural masterpiece nothing short of spectacular. Presented in the most cinematic way possible, the entirety of Downtown Los Angeles, Catalina, and the coastline of California is offered in one unobstructed, sweeping view. It’s the kind of view that inspired a team to build a home like no other with the utmost integrity. Visions of a house encased in glass, with effortless flow from room to room and from inside to outside, is the central ethos that guided the evolution and completion of this real estate gem."

I think youve got the master bedroom wrong. You see, I was looking at the floor plans and the pictures don't match. I could be mistaken but I think the bedroom you listed as the master is actually the guest suite. The guest suite is the one with the home office and gym. Just an observation.

Lovely house for someone who likes modern... so many nice features and overwhelming opulence but give me a warm cozy home with lots of family photos, places for little ones to play in a spacious yard and happy memories. Thanks for sharing.

C'mon people, it's only a dollar.
