Agent Comments :: Kaye Residence. Gregory Ain FAIA. Historic Cultural Monument No.952. Ain?s last California Residence is a conceptual arrangement of hexagonal & trapezoidal shapes that connect you with the surrounding environment. Deliberately remodeled and expanded by the Firm of Fung and Blatt, the home now has the flexibility to accommodate any lifestyle. Walled and gated from the street, you enter a motor court as the house explodes into view. A three-car garage flanks the covered portico entry. Once inside the home dramatically splits into private & public wings. To the right is a great room w/rock fireplace & built ins that creates separation for Dining, Living & Family. The kitchen & breakfast area is of current chef quality. The private wing includes a lower level bed & bath. A cantilever stairwell accesses the upper level, w/ 2 guest rooms a hall bath & master suite. Here high drama plays w/the light & space. Multiple built-ins & fireplace create an unstructured space that flows past a hidden walk-in closet & sumptuous bath w/dual sinks, shower & soaking tub. Movement from interior to exterior is everywhere w/extended eaves creating outdoor living spaces. The grounds include two separate play areas, spa waterfall, stone surround pool & verdant landscaping.

4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 3160sf, 15450sf lot
