Originally constructed in 1959, 3092 Belden Drive has been thoughtfully revitalized by its current owners; every detail of this calmingly minimalist home has been considered. One enters the house to find a light, bright open-plan layout with sweeping vistas of Beachwood Canyon. Step down into the living room where natural wood floors provide a contrast with the exposed beam ceiling, whilst a minimal fireplace has a cantilevered marble hearth. Sliding doors lead out onto a charming wooden deck.
The kitchen features original cabinetry which has been refurbished and fitted with white Carrara marble counters and backsplash. A stainless-steel six burner Bertazzoni freestanding gas range is fitted. Subtle colour contrasts are provided by the mid-gray rubberised flooring and the pale blue interiors of the upper cabinets.
Both bathrooms have abundant natural light, Carrara marble walls, minimally-designed fixtures and Duravit wall-hung vanities and toilets. Contrasting midnight blue rubberised flooring provides a handsome contrast with the white-grey Carrara walls. The guest bathroom is top-lit via a skylight and has a marble-lined shower, whilst the master bath has a marble-clad under-mounted soaking tub with rain head shower above.
The master bedroom has impressive canyon views, with morning sun and indirect afternoon light. Two spacious closets provide ample storage.
The house is well-positioned with no immediate neighbours thus ensuring both privacy and availability of street parking. A large sub-floor/basement area may present an opportunities for future expansion.
House systems have been extensively updated: a "cool roof" has 2” rigid foam insulation; custom-fabricated wooden windows; skylights; an electrical re-wire and service panel; full copper plumbing; HVAC & ducting; tankless water heater; water filtration system, and much more.
3092 Belden is favourably located to access all of Los Angeles, yet is far from the madding crowds.
