Home Of The Week
240 Lemon Ave
Bold contemporary design meets traditional excellence in this distinguished brand-new luxury estate in the prestigious Baldwin Stocker area. Designed by the acclaimed Robert Tong and completed by prominent Southern California builder Mur Sol in 2017, this is a home created for comfortable indoor-outdoor living and entertaining in the utmost privacy.
From the gated drive and front façade detailed with stonework and polished copper, stately double doors open onto a bright, grand central foyer with soaring ceiling and art deco chandelier. The open floorplan features 6 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms and over 9,600 square feet of living space that makes full use of ample natural light and sweeping mountain views to the north. Off the entry, an executive office exudes mid-century character with two-tone coffered ceilings and handsome, built-in custom wood shelving. The gorgeous living room, with deco-style fireplace and huge windows, opens to a piano hall and, beyond that, the formal dining room.
The gourmet kitchen is equipped with professional grade appliances, a large center island, dining area, and adjacent sous chef prep kitchen. The spacious family room features a wet bar and gorgeous views of the meticulously landscaped rear yard. Beyond the temperature-controlled wine room is a comfortably appointed movie theater. A downstairs master bedroom suite with direct patio access and a guest room complete the main level.
Upstairs, off a large landing, another opulent master suite features a sitting area, walk-in closet, and lavish master bath with dual vanities, spa tub, and steam shower. A gym/workout room is outfitted with a full bath and a sauna. Three additional en-suite bedrooms offer superb comfort.
This luxurious estate includes an enchanting back yard, which is complete with a built-in grill, pool and spa, and picturesque mature oak tree. Style, craftsmanship, and every practical consideration make this home a rare gem.
