From hot hangout to cool hideout

Architectural developer Jason Lev is not one to take a break. No sooner were stars, musicians and models flocking to Tenants of the Trees, the eclectic Silver Lake club he co-created, than he was teaming with SPACE International to transform a home in the winding canyon streets of Beverly Glen. The property, set on a cul-de-sac at 9621 Arby Drive, has just been listed by Brian Courville and JB Fung at $7,395,000.

Every aspect of the sweeping addition and renovation reflects Lev’s unique approach to design. Elevated ceilings and clerestory windows allow for an abundance of light throughout the residence. Expansive views of the canyon beyond, a new cantilevered floating guest house and extended wood terrace surround a pool to create a courtyard effect.

Luxurious natural wood, stone and tile delight the eye inside and out. Amenities are naturally top of the line: cabinets by Boffi, a Miele kitchen and much more. This refined ambience is blended with the modern technical amenities of a fully automated Control4 smart home, while landscape design by Kathleen Ferguson completes the vision to perfection. We can’t wait to see where Lev turns his exceptional eye next.
