It might sound like any other typical address in any town in any state anywhere in America, but that’s not quite the case in this instance. This property is special. First, it sits just off the famous Mulholland Drive in the 90210 zip code.
Jasper Venture Group, led by CEO Ilio Mavlyanov and headquartered in New York, decided to expand its portfolio many years back and quickly found itself right at home on the west coast, developing a brand new luxury home nestled discreetly into the hills and overlooking the City of Angels.
The three-level ultra-contemporary mansion with its breathtakingly beautiful wing-like exterior architecture can be found inside one of the city’s most exclusive gated communities and might be easily discoverable when winding through the hills. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows showcase the most stunning views in LA from the Western San Fernando Valley, straight across the ridgeline to Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean. The owners of this luxury estate basically enjoy sweeping views of the Los Angeles basin and far beyond as far as the eye can see.
Jay Vanos of Vanos Architects was hired to architect the roughly 15,000 square ft. project. He designed a stunning home to showcase the magnificent views while taking on the task of building a modern, architecturally sound structure on rough terrain just below the ridgeline of the Santa Monica Mountain range. Hillside construction can be one of the most difficult obstacles to overcome when building luxury homes in and around Los Angeles. To bring structural integrity to the property, a large portion of the house is surrounded by a 20-foot high wall held on 19 piles, while the house foundation includes 78 piles.
The project also involved public and street work, including bringing utilities such as sewer lines into the community from another street, for which Ilio Mavlyanov hired Bali Construction, a union contractor specializing in civil heavy construction.
Beyond the foundation, the structure boasts a built-in underground parking garage and a soaring rooftop open-air deck equipped with its own outdoor bar for authentic under-the-stars entertaining. The house also contains a commercial elevator. Outside, a uniquely-framed infinity pool alongside its own tessellates spa unmask the property’s very best views.
To match the work of Jay Vanos, Ilio Mavlyanov called upon Ferrugio Design + Associates, a Los Angeles-based design firm with an extensive portfolio of high-end residential projects and world-class spaces designed to create a sense of hyper-modern functionality. Joseph Ferrugio and his team steal the show as you enter the home with a pristine seven-foot-tall iceberg chandelier to show off the soaring 26-foot ceilings in the two-level main living area.
The company hired CMF Homebuilder as a general contractor for this house, a well-experienced general contractor responsible for numerous higher-end hills homes of this magnitude.
The entire home is designed with ultra-sophisticated minimalism. The property features an elegant onyx fireplace and a custom kitchen manufactured by Bulthaup. While there are spaces for relaxation, entertainment capabilities are revealed at every turn. From a walk-in wine cellar, built-in aquarium, and spa area that includes a sauna and hammam. The design and layout are unmatched.
Upstairs, the master suite showcases the twinkling lights of the city to rock you to sleep at night. Down in the basement, the entertainment continues with a classic mega-screen theatre that can seat a small army of friends alongside the feature of all features, a high-end golf simulator built for you to drive down the longest par five fairway with ease or make the putt of your life on a left-sloping green from 32-feet away with a full backdrop of eager fans ready to cheer for you as it sinks into the simulated hole.
The team of professionals assembled by Ilio Mavlyanov and Jasper Venture Group created an entertainer’s dream in a sophisticated and modern setting. This property perfectly accompanies the high-class celebrity LA lifestyle, both in its grandeur and discretion.
Ilio Mavlyanov’s company sold the finished architectural masterpiece to Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), whose artists account for nearly 5% of America’s highly lucrative R&B/hip-hop business. Kendrick Lamar has been TDE’s premiere artist for many years now.
Beverly Hills real estate agents Joyce Rey, one of the top residential RE brokers in the US, and Stephen Apelian represented Jasper Venture Group in this transaction.
The mansion is a stunning piece of architecture masterfully developed. Built and designed to wow guests while keeping the family tucked in and comfortable every day of the year.
