A brand-new modernist mansion designed by the architect Zoltan Pali and located in the East Gate enclave of Los Angeles’s tony Bel Air neighborhood overlooking the fourth green of the Bel Air Country Club was listed Monday for $47.5 million.
“The architect is extremely well known for his innovative contemporary homes,” said listing agent Sally Forster Jones, who has the listing with fellow Compass agents Tomer Fridman and Tyrone McKillen and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland. “Each of his homes is truly a masterpiece and not repeated. The architecture of this property is extremely dramatic and engaging and cutting edge.”
Developed and being sold by Viewpoint Collection—who purchased the underlying property in 2015 for a little over $13.5 million, listing records show—the 17,401-square-foot home offers two interior courtyards and eight bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and three powder rooms spread across three levels.
The landscaped lot, which is next to a Japanese garden, measures 0.85 acres.
“It’s one of the most premier—if not the premier—areas of Los Angeles, with huge estates and a beautiful golf course,” Ms. Jones said. “East Gate is the most coveted location in Bel Air, and it’s the prime desired location for anyone looking for a majestic estate.”
From the gated front entrance you step into the top level of the three-level home, Ms. Jones said.
“You’re immediately struck with the views, which are just phenomenal. You see the entire skyline of the L.A. Basin and you’re right on the golf course,” she added. “From almost every room you’re getting the views of the golf course and the entire cityscape.”
The entryway features a dramatic staircase and a glass elevator, both of which service all three levels. This top level holds a great room with living and dining areas and a travertine fireplace; a main and a working chef’s kitchen with Miele, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances; and three en-suite bedrooms, including the primary suite, which has a walk-in closet, a sitting area and a private patio.
There is marble and fine stone everywhere,” Ms. Jones said. The exterior was crafted with Indiana limestone and curved bronze metalwork, and some of the interior walls are clad in travertine and poured concrete, with French walnut floors.
“The limestone and travertine are carried throughout the house,” she said. “It all works really well together.”
All of the doors in the house are floor-to-ceiling height, and each bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to multiple decks and patios, she added.
“The natural light is one of the best features of the home,” Ms. Jones said. “The home is full of energy, full of light.”
One flight down, the middle level holds a bar and lounge area that opens to the oversized floating deck and infinity pool, an interior courtyard with a towering olive tree, three more en-suite bedrooms and a wellness center with a gym and a spa with steam and sauna.
Down one more flight is the lowest level, which features a wine room with a lounge area, a theater with a snack bar, and two bedrooms for staff or guests.
