Ask anyone in the Hollywood Hills about 1734 Doheny, and they may struggle to provide an exact location. But mention “The Doheny,” and they’ll likely nod in admiration and point to the beautiful glass and steel structure perched above the Sunset Strip in Doheny Estates’ “Bird Streets.”

It’s one thing to create a showcase of contemporary design from one of today’s foremost architectural designers in one of the most sought-after Los Angeles locations. Rare is the home that transcends its pedigree to take on a life of its own.

The Doheny is five bedrooms, six baths of pristine Luca Colombo interiors. Famed European designer Colombo, known for “extreme luxury residential real estate with a focus on architectural design, spectacular views, and high-tech features,” has put his unique stamp on this home with…all of the above.

Views spanning the L.A. skyline, ocean, and Catalina, are but one reason that celebrities and Hollywood power players flock to this exclusive enclave in the Hollywood Hills. Perhaps no other location in L.A. offers the same combination of close proximity to the Sunset Strip, Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, and the studios with the elevated setting affording postcard views. Just ask Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston, Keanu Reeves, Tobey Maguire, Jodie Foster, Herbie Hancock, Matthew Perry, or Christina Aguilera, all of whom are currently–or have been–residents of this area. Noted the Hollywood Reporter: “The neighborhood includes only a few hundred properties…and (is) in serious demand among producers, actors and moguls alike.”

This home strikes a commanding yet welcoming presence from the street, with a cascading water feature and a light-channeling illumination system. The orientation of the home acts as a conduit to the home’s sweeping views and create numerous opportunities for indoor-outdoor living. Sliding walls of glass in the dining room open to a patio with outdoor fireplace; in the family room they bring the sparkling pool and lush greenery into a landscape of contemporary white. Similarly, the master suite, with adjoining spa bath with soaking tub and double walk-in steam shower, takes in all of the best of L.A.; slide the glass doors aside, and uninterrupted views over the pool and fire feature on to city lights, palm trees, and all the way to the Pacific Ocean spill out before you.

From the two-story living room with fireplace to Colombo’s showplace kitchen with Modulo Casa cabinets, Miele Appliances, and wine refrigerators, to a house full of today’s most significant technological features including Apple Savant System, built-in security system, and exotic surfaces including Basalt Stone, Eco Stone, Corian, Epay Wood, Terrazzo Flooring, no detail has been overlooked.

Outside, a Modern zero edge pool, fountain, spa, fire pit, and outdoor kitchen with built-in seating for entertaining complete the picture.

1734 Doheny is listed with James Hancock of Coldwell Banker Beverly Hills North for $10,400,000.
