We get the urge to create all-white interiors, especially in older homes that once might have been dark and dim. We don’t necessarily endorse its current widespread application, though.
Luckily, this updated home in the northwest Beverly Hills neighborhood retained its charm after undergoing the process, and its best features—front and back facades, decks, and surrounding greenery—might have been spiffed up a bit but are otherwise untouched.
Built on a lush hillside next to the Bright Leaf Preserve, the 3,060-square-foot 1973 build sports a nifty rock-and-wood facade with decks and porches front and back; there’s also a balcony in the front, which is set back from the street and kept private by mature foliage.
The house has five bedrooms and three bathrooms and has been completely updated. The main level has a big, open-floor living area, gourmet kitchen, master suite, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms; downstairs are two more bedrooms, one bathroom, and a laundry room. Otherwise, it’s treetops all around.
