You'd be forgiven for thinking this stunning home was situated beachside in the Hamptons, but's actually part of a high-end enclave in the Pacific Palisades, California.
Set upon more than 2.3 acres of lush grounds in Rustic Canyon, this grand estate evokes an elevated design sensibility among an ultra-secluded setting. Its striped poolside sun loungers and modern rustic pool house transport you to the East Coast, while exquisite botanical wallpaper throughout adds the LA vibe.

And what could evoke Hamptons style more than a cute pooch on a stylish porch decorated with pastel hues and checks? To be sure, this is a signal that the rest of the house is going to be just as East-Coast inspired.
The decadent dining room is adorned with hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper and dark wood rattan furniture for a refined yet relaxed look.
There's also incredible views through to the impressive dining room, with a cozy, oversized botanical rug and statement table.
The welcoming hallway boasts inviting printed wallpaper and a stylish seating nook.
Featuring 8,162 square-feet, the seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom is replete with high-beamed ceilings, wood floors and spectacular views over the luxurious grounds.
The main house includes a library, media room, gourmet chef’s kitchen with a marble island, all opening to an immense front porch set to rolling greenery views.
