Top Property: Beverly Hills home offering security and serenity

Set on a private road in Beverly Hills, this week’s Top Property offers equal parts security and serenity.

David Parnes of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles describes 9520 Hidden Valley Rd. as “the sexiest Cape Cod east coast traditional house I’ve ever seen.”

This new construction home, that took 3.5 years to build, spans 12,000 sq. ft. across three levels with seven bedrooms, a dozen bathrooms, and a surprise subterranean world.

As soon as you step inside, you can’t help but notice the scale.  The height in the foyer, for example, measures close to 25 feet.

“But I love the detail, the crown molding… and all the walls are paneled so I think it has so much character,” says Parnes.

The home’s layout fosters an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

The backyard offers covered patios, cabana with a pool and spa, water features, kitchen, plus a fireplace.

Most of the bedrooms are upstairs, including the master suite that boasts canyon views, dual bathrooms, one with a heated bath tub, dual walk-in closets, and terrace. 

While stairs are an option, the professional-grade elevator is a nice way to travel to the lower level.

Built for entertaining, this underground floor offers an auto gallery, complete with a turntable, gym, gaming area, wine cellar, bar and theater.

“It’s versatile,” says Parnes when asked about this traditional home’s ability to quickly turn into a party house.

Asking price for Parnes’ east meets west coast versatile home: $19,950,000.
