1471 Forest Knoll Drive’s striking pitched-roof architecture

With panoramic views of the Los Angeles skyline, living at 1471 Forest Knoll Drive makes every day seem like living at a private resort. Perched on a prominent hillside location above the famous Sunset Strip, the building’s archetypal design draws from the aesthetics of a farmhouse with three pitched roofs.

The home blends its design with ample open-air spaces to deliver a variety of lifestyle experiences. Providing about 11,184 square feet of living space, homeowners are pampered with six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a zero-edge infinity pool, gym, home theatre, and, of course, towering walls of glass that look out to the unobstructed city and ocean views. The ample land area offers privacy and security, while the style of the home is minimal but warm. Elegant and high-tech appointments in the home cater to every whim and fancy.

The architect’s use of simple forms and materials, fused with a restrained palette, and the location on a promontory with 270-degree views, helps create a modern Californian lifestyle for a young family or hip newlyweds. The project’s interior, furnished by  Minotti Los Angeles and MASS Beverly, offers an elegant sophistication. If you’re keen to invest in a home in Los Angeles that provides privacy, a commanding view, tranquillity, and a bespoke sense of style, then 1471 Forest Knoll Drive should be your next home.
