Beautifully isolated to shape a luxurious environment, the Holmby Hills Residence rests on a 57,250 square feet site in Holmby Hills, Bel Air, Los Angeles, so you can see where it gets its name from. The location inspired not only its name, but its openness towards panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills beyond. Designed by London-based Quinn Architects, the luxury Californian home itself spreads over 15,250 square feet of perfectly manicured spaces. The luxurious villa built for for international property developer Estate Four as a speculative residential development can be easily seen as a hillside dream home.

The design and architecture team worked from the ground up to create a masterfully elegant home design: “A detailed soil survey was commissioned to understand the below ground condition of the hillside, which then became a catalyst for both the architectural, civil and structural design. “The Holmby Hills Residence is surrounded by luscious vegetation and showcases a basement and first floor terrace emerging from the landscape. “The entrance sequence from the street to the house itself was designed to be dramatic, with a significant motor court and powerful 20 ft high canopy above the main entrance. A descending staircase followed by an over-sized entrance door heightens the sense of arrival to the residence.The expansive first floor level gives 7,000 sq ft of living accommodation that is set around 6,500 sq ft of terrace space, that in turn hugs the edge of the 60 ft long infinity-edged pool and Jacuzzi. The terrace gives access to over 30,000 sq ft of landscaped gardens and tennis court, via a sunken gym that is surrounded by rich vegetation. A 75 ft long gallery links the primary living spaces with a private guest suite and is designed to exhibit a significant art collection.”

Designed for an art-lover, the elegantly proportioned luxury villa has plenty of display places and natural light coming from a collection of skylights, clerestory windows and full height sliding panels. Secluded and private, the beautiful residence blends the inside with the outdoors in a successful attempt to wash away any worries.
