I’m usually in favor of older homes with a lot of character, as opposed to newer builds, with their cookie cutter tendencies, but this fantastic cape cod in Studio City is a glorious exception. Located in the very desirable zip code of Studio City, 91406, this 5 bedroom home is over 3900 square feet. Interestingly enough, the Studio City Council just passed an ordinance restricting homes this size to be built anymore. The ordinance was designed to stop “McMansions” from crowding out their lots. In my opinion, this doesn’t qualify as a McMansion, because it was so tastefully done. Scroll down to see what I mean.
My favorite part of this elegant kitchen is the chandelier, but the beveled marble counter tops come in a close second. I also adore the wine cooler in the butler’s pantry, the antiqued cabinets, the subway tile and the crystal cabinet hardware.
There are so many gorgeous details in this dining room, I don’t know where to begin. The paneled walls, the multi-pane windows, the rich wood floors, the coffered ceiling!
The master bathroom is like your own private spa with marble tile, pedestal tub, and honed marble. The master bedroom has two walk in closets, a fireplace and cathedral beamed ceilings.
The back of the home has a covered veranda overlooking a sparkling swimming pool.
This elegant home is one of two new construction custom homes completed in January of 2012. The other one sold before it went on the market.
