With a couple of sleek balconies with glass railings protruding from the corners of the upper floor, the front of the lumbering mansion encompasses a small car space with a two-car garage behind a dramatic smoked glass door. The architectural Braggadocio continues inside, where a strapped double staircase made of steel and wood with an open profile defies gravity when it climbs against a huge glass wall to the upper floor. In the spacious room there is a linear fireplace between mirrored shelves, while in the dining area a showcase with 84 bottles of wine and alcohol is displayed behind high glass panes. Four extravagant geometric lights hang over an almost 20 foot long island on two levels in the elegant and gourmet kitchen. Elsewhere on the ground floor, a spacious family room with a fireplace extends onto a covered terrace with heaters built into the ceiling. Two guest rooms each have their own bathroom and direct access to the backyard.
Upstairs there are two more en-suite guest rooms and a couple of lavish master bedrooms, each with a fireplace, walk-in closet and balcony with a view over the rooftops of the distant mountains on the northern edge of the sprawling San Fernando Valley. Also on the upper floor is a huge entertainment room with a 200-inch screen, a guest toilet and a stone-tiled all-round loggia with a view of the backyard.
