Home Of The Week
5195 Parkway Calabasas
Situated on over an acre at the end of a cul-de-sac and behind the private gates of Hidden Hills West, this gorgeous Calabasas residence is designed for comfortable living and impressive entertaining. Meticulously rebuilt from the ground up, it is both elegant and spacious.
The half-timbered Tudor exterior is grand and welcoming and, with its leaded glass panes and magnificent leaded glass window, the wide double-door entry speaks of refinement and quality. Detailing is flawless throughout, with soaring ceilings, crown moldings, wide plank French oak floors and bespoke hand-built and hand-painted cabinetry. The open plan allows easy flow from room to room and outside to the tranquil patios and garden. Adjacent to the living room, with fireplace, is a library with coffered ceiling, fireplace, rolling library ladder and wide windows looking onto the verdant yard. There is a large formal dining room as well as ample party-friendly seating in the kitchen, which features an oversized island, top-of-the-line appliances, lighted cabinetry, a banquette seating area and fold-away glass doors that open to the yard and pool. Guest/maid’s quarters, spacious gym and extra-large laundry room complete the main floor.
Upstairs, the master suite is a sanctuary, with a separate sitting room, beverage bar, two walk-in closets and a spectacular bathroom with an oversized shower and a freestanding tub. There are five additional en-suite bedrooms, each with custom-built walk-in closets, and a huge game room has a full kitchen and bath.
The impeccable grounds include an oversized swimming pool and spa, covered patio, built-in barbecue center, expansive lawns with artificial turf, beautiful mature trees, interchangeable sports court with two basketball hoops, five-hole putting green, pavilion with outdoor kitchen, and fruit trees. There is garage parking for five vehicles, plus numerous energy efficient features. An exceptional residence for sophisticated Southern California living.
