Comprised of THREE, distinct residences : 848, 850, 850 1/2 Harper is a one-of-one designer compound nearly impossible to duplicate with a flexibility unrivaled in the category. The 1938 California Spanish hacienda-style duplex has been thoughtfully restored and updated incorporating tasteful materials throughout (Sub Zero, Wolf). Each residence features 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on a single level, living in approximately 1500sf, per unit. This is where it gets really good: The third residence, a separate and modern aerie (2017) has been created with the most discerning level of quality and style. Approached via the gated driveway, this two-level California contemporary opens to a voluminous and highly unexpected loft-like space featuring weathered stone flooring from Exquisite Surfaces, highly-custom metal and millwork, and 12-inch French white oak floors in the main living areas. A European stone island includes Sub-Zero refrigerated drawers, appliances by Gaggenau and Miele with washroom fittings by Vola. Solid slab showers in bath with stunning custom stone and millwork vanities lend to a feeling of quality you would expect in a home that could have just been published in Architectural Digest. A private roof deck featuring Ipe wood flooring, a firepit, outdoor kitchen, spa and shower with built-in audio complete the experience with explosive views of the city and the surrounding Hills. 2-car garage and off-street parking for at least an additional 3-5 cars. Home automation by Control 4 is fully integrated throughout. Fully gated and hedged for security and privacy on one of the Melrose Place neighborhood's most coveted streets, where Los Angeles' most desirable walking, shopping and cafes are located.
