Oak Pass House
9601 Oak Pass Rd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Description: “An architectural masterpiece, raising the bar in both design and technology. This 2 home compound is on 3.5 oak studded acres in a quiet canyon on a private gated street. This main house is ideal for the art collector with its gallery and abundance of art walls. The living and dining room is enveloped by floor to ceiling sliding doors overlooking the 75 foot raised infinity pool that cascades into the primary pool. The chefs kitchen features a disappearing wall of glass that brings the outside in and a true wood burning oven.
The family room features a 920 bottle wine wall. All the bedrooms are isolated from the living areas. The master suite is its own reprieve surrounded by oaks and appointed with a private study and a sun drenched spa bathroom. Additional amenities include a gym, steam and dry sauna, screening room, caretaker’s apartment, a music room that seats 80 people for performances and a 2 bedroom second residence that is an architectural triumph in its own right. ”
From the architect: “The Oak Pass main house sits on the top of a 3.5 acre ridge site with panoramic canyon views. There are over 130 protected Oak trees on the property. The house was sited to take advantage of the views without the house becoming a central visual focus.
The massing was reduced by utilizing an “upside down” program with the public spaces located above the bedrooms, which are buried into the hill and protected beneath a vegetated roof. A lower level courtyard allows light and air to flow to the buried hallway of the bedroom level.
The Oak Pass Main house uses an “Upside Down” program, with public spaces above the bedrooms, which are buried into the hill and beneath a green roof of edible herbs. This relatively large house at 8,000 square feet appears much smaller and carefully integrated into the surrounding landscape, which includes over one hundred and thirty Coast Live Oaks. A seventy five foot swimming pool, with infinity edges on three of four sides, bisects the house and slips below one of the largest Oaks on the property.”
