The coveted Deronda Residence is now up for grabs in Los Angeles. Perched on a hill in the Beachwood Canyon neighborhood, the striking contemporary was crafted in 2011 by architect Michael Ferguson, the founder and principal of Los Angles–based firm Space International. The home offers more than 3,000 square feet of interior space, outdoor living areas, and sweeping views out over the city.
Well suited for those who love to entertain, the multilevel home is made up of two main rectangular volumes, which effortlessly merge to encourage indoor/outdoor living. "The public areas of the house are situated on the ridge of the site so as to take advantage of flanking outdoor spaces," explains Ferguson. "They are designed as extensions of the living and dining areas when connected via a series of large, sliding glass openings."
Outdoor dining areas are located at both the front and back of the house. Additional entertaining areas are peppered around the expansive 8,000-square-foot lot, and include a sparkling saltwater pool. Sliding glass doors usher incredible natural light inside, while framing panoramic canyon views whether open or closed.
The bedrooms and baths are located in a private wing, "housed in a cantilevered bar which hovers over the parking court and floats amid the treetops at the perimeter of the property," says Ferguson. In total, the residence offers five bedrooms and four baths, including a spacious primary suite with a walk-in closet. On the lower level, the dwelling features a guest studio with a full bath, along with a bonus space that can be used as an office or gym.
Since its creation in 2011, the home has received a number of accolades, most notably the Los Angeles Architectural Award in 2012. Scroll ahead to see inside more of the residence, currently listed for $4,175,000.
