Some homes just live and breathe luxury. They scream high society and induce a sort of shocking dropped jaw awe that makes you say, “Wait, did I see that place in a movie once?” The Marc Canadell designed Nightingale Home set above California’s famed Sunset Strip does exactly that. It’s a 9,000 square foot, five bedrooms, eight bathroom home set on one acre, and it’s absolutely astonishing.
The all white two story home features a contemporary design with dark floors that contrast the home’s lighter color palette and detailed finishes that include semi-translucent glass doors, sliding transitions between the master bedroom and en suite bathroom, and other impeccable finishes meant to impress.
The totally dark theater room has three couches for curling up on, but this isn’t the only place to watch a movie. Perhaps set up as an homage to its famous “Bird Streets” location, guests can also watch movies projected on the second story wall that opens up to the backyard.
The screening area is visible from the long lap pool, but moviegoers might have trouble deciding whether to watch the film or the city lights off in the distance. In the end, this is one of the best features of The Nightingale Home.
The view at night glimmers with a view of Los Angeles that feels close enough to touch. The lap pool opens up to this view, as does the outdoor fireplace, the master suite, the living room, and the kitchen.
True chefs will rejoice when they catch light of the kitchen with stainless steel appliances, multiple ovens, a huge hood, and long countertops that connect to bar seating on the other side and then opens up completely to the beautiful backyard views. If there’s a place that feels like paradise, it’s most certainly this.
