Beverly Hills | Hagy Belzberg, FAIA
1725 Clear View Drive | $3,795,000
This steel troweled plaster, galvanized aluminum and glass home sits like a sculpture on a Benedict Canyon bluff with views of a valley and nearby undeveloped mountain. Offering privacy, serenity and solitude yet approximately three miles from downtown Beverly Hills, this home is an early work by Hagy Belzberg, a protege of Frank Gehry. Belzberg, like another architectural giant John Lautner, bent the roofline to shape the force of the design. A motor court and gate lead visitors through the entry into the large vaulted, dynamic gallery for living, dining, art and entertaining large groups of people. The room is warmed by both Douglas fir beams extending to the outside and wide plank Brazilian cherry floors. The hearth anchors the spirit while glass walls and sliders tempt the visitor to the backyard, which features cactus, succulent and native gardens, a solar heated Pebble Tec pool and a conversation area with fire pit. Perched as a tree house, the spacious primary suite occupies the entire second level and features a glass floor-to-ceiling roll-up door to the balcony, ample closets and dressing area, an office nook perfect for Zoom meetings and a large jetted tub from which you can view Century City in the distance. The chef’s kitchen has a breakfast room with a banquette and opens to an outdoor dining terrace and vegetable garden. Completing the first floor are two additional bedrooms, one designed by Kids’ Studio principal Alla Kazovsky, where the furniture grows with the child, two baths, den/media room, powder room, laundry, housekeeper’s ensuite bedroom and two-car garage.
