When it comes to convenience, few areas compare to Century City, located in the center of the city’s Westside, about equal distance to Hollywood, downtown L.A., LAX, and Santa Monica beach. Conceived as a “city within a city,” according to Wikipedia, the area presents unique residential offerings in a pocket of high rises and midrises akin to Manhattan.
Among them, The Century, the city’s most prestigious residential estate building, stands alone with its exceptional space, panoramic views, and signature concierge experience offering 24-hour full-service. At the top, a remarkable penthouse stands as the ultimate example of five-star, in-town living.
1 W Century Drive #PH36A is a three-bedroom, four-bath vertical estate that has been impeccably conceived with 6,080 square feet of meticulous living space and views spanning a sea of city lights all the way to the ocean, and reconceived to reveal exquisite new design and detailing from the hand of acclaimed interior designer Joan Behnke. A recent top-to-toe renovation reconfigured the floorplan, maximizing square footage and creating a wide-open design, such as the main living space that could easily double as a grand ballroom. Sliding doors that open to reveal one of many view-saturated terraces continue the allure outside.
An expansive formal dining room suitable for elegant family dinners and exceptional entertaining showcases an adjacent custom wine display. In the one-of-a-kind kitchen, custom cabinetry, high-end appliances, and a large center island establish a masterful space.
In the master suite, exotic materials and elegant styling combine to create an unmatched resort feel. The suite includes an office, his-and-her walk-in closets, a private balcony, a safe room, and a spa bath with an oversized glass shower, miles of marble slab, and a large bathtub in front of a picture window that soaks in the breathtaking view.
Throughout the home, special touches such as Crestron home automation, remote-controlled shades, and custom fixtures provide an added level of elegance, comfort and convenience.
The penthouse also has full access to all of the amenities that make The Century, the prized 42-story building designed by the renowned Robert A.M. Stern Architects, so unique and aspirational. Exclusive entry through guard gates and a private elevator plus exceptional attention with a 24-hour valet, a doorman, and a concierge set a new standard of service. A pool and spa with cabana, a gym, yoga studio, Pilates studio, screening room, meeting rooms, storage further create the ultimate in full-service, five-star living.
The Century also included landscaped gardens, two outdoor dining rooms and bar lounges, a dog park, and a massage studio.
