Ed Niles-Designed Home, Beverly Hills, Estate of the Day
In the world of trophy estates, few properties can trump a glass circular home. One of Beverly Hills' most unique properties -- arguably one of the most unique properties anywhere -- has come on the market at $10.9 million. It's an Ed Niles original; need we say more?
Niles designs art work that people just happen to live in. He favors using a lot glass and we suspect that he's on every window-washer's holiday card list. He's built several homes in Malibu, as well as the Malibu Jewish Center and Synagogue. And they all, this one included, seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living spaces in a contemporary modernist way.
The 7,500-square-foot two-story Beverly Hills home is centered around a circular inner-courtyard and has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, with jetliner views from all rooms. The home has an infinity-edge pool and gardens. The gourmet kitchen, with a full-length counter with seating for about 10, is connected to the dining room by a circular glass hallway that wraps around the courtyard. Sunlight, sunlight and more sunlight fill the rooms.
The home includes a high-tech media room, a six-car garage and a personal study. The second-floor master suite continues the modernistic clean lines of the rest of the home and all the flooring is limestone. Niles frequently custom-designs furniture for the homes he builds.
Linda May of Coldwell Banker Previews International and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland, both Beverly Hills, share the listing.
