Home Of The Week

1454 Benedict Canyon Drive

Beverly Hills

Retreat to the tranquility of this gated two-story Italian-inspired country Tuscan villa just minutes from world-renowned Rodeo Drive and the heart of Beverly Hills.

Situated on approximately 1.75 acres off a long, gated drive on Benedict Canyon Drive, this very private home is surrounded by lush natural flora, hills and majestic mountain views. The peaceful, secluded grounds offer terraced patios, flourishing gardens, a koi pond and pool/spa with fountains – all with barely a hint of neighbors. It’s easy to see why the grounds have been designated a certified wildlife sanctuary.

The home’s main level has a spacious flow, with high ceilings, a large step-down living room overlooking the beautiful backyard, formal dining room with a stone fireplace and a library/office. The gourmet kitchen has a center island, granite countertops, tile flooring and stainless-steel appliances, including a double oven. French doors lead from the bright breakfast area to the poolside patio, which features a cozy sitting area, large stone fireplace and a built-in barbecue. There are also two bedrooms on the main level.

Upstairs, the expansive master suite boasts hardwood flooring, a sitting area, fireplace, walk-in closet and bathroom with a tub, separate shower and dual sinks. French doors open to a spacious awning-covered balcony overlooking the pool and verdant yard.

Ideal for entertaining or relaxing, the lower level features a custom media room/home theater and a wine cellar with a tasting area. The property also offers a spacious detached guesthouse with a fireplace, bathroom and wet bar boasting views of the amazing grounds, as well as a two-car garage.

Don’t miss out on the European charm and inspiring serenity of this canyon masterpiece located just minutes from Rodeo Drive’s upscale shopping and dining, sprawling celebrity estates and historic landmarks such as Beverly Wilshire.
