Home of the Week: Statement architecture, welcoming style
This showstopping modern masterpiece blends steel, wood, glass and concrete to create open spaces that redefine the concept of inside and out. Over 3,600 square feet of cool, sleek sophistication begin at the gated motor court, three-car garage and stainless steel and glass entry. Inside, high ceilings embrace plays of light, while custom wide-plank wood floors warm the ambience. 

This is a home designed for unforgettable gatherings that begin in the stunning open kitchen, lit by a row of clerestory windows and highlighted by a walk-in pantry and an ultra-contemporary take on the breakfast nook. A large formal dining room with its stunning teak wall adjoins a sunken living room with a polished concrete floor. A double-sided fireplace here lights both this area and the poolside lounge. In the spacious den, Fleetwood retractable doors glide open to the curving turquoise pool and shaded refreshment area with bar seating, with grill, fridge and prep sink nearby. A sport court and lush lawn invite hours of outdoor play.

On the upper floor, four bedroom suites include a luxuriously relaxing master retreat with inviting fireplace, fridge, walk-in closets, soaking tub, double steam shower and twin vanities. An office/nursery space completes this family level. There’s also a bonus nanny/guest suite on the lower level. A state-of-the-art security system and an array of smart home features enhance the living experience. Rarely does an architectural home this dramatic deliver such relaxed, livable ease.

Set south of the Boulevard in Encino, 18084 Rancho Street is listed by Gloria Carmona at $2,049,000.
