Located in Beverly Hills, Calif., this approximately 3,219-square-foot home includes five bedrooms and five bathrooms and is the former Beverly Hills writing sanctuary for legendary musician and recording artist Robbie Robertson of The Band who wrote the following songs: "The Weight," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "Up on Cripple Creek," "Broken Arrow" and "Somewhere Down the Crazy River."
“Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Robbie Robertson bought this home as an escape to pen what would become his New York Times best selling autobiography, Testimony,” said Lee. “Nestled up high on North Beverly Drive across from Franklin Canyon Park, one of Beverly Hills’ best kept secrets, this ultra-private getaway boasts an incredibly scenic landscape while remaining six minutes from the Beverly Hills Hotel.”
With a minimalist, mid-century aesthetic, this sleek and chic home is as sophisticated as it is luxurious. Showcasing high ceilings and an open floor plan, this private sanctuary is nestled within the natural beauty of the surrounding hillsides and lush foliage. Dark walnut floors, clean lines and walls of glass set the tone for the first floor where the formal living room and dining room open to the state-of-the-art kitchen with top-of-the-line Viking stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line fixtures and a central island that overlooks the cozy banquette seating nook. A floating staircase leads up to the sleeping quarters, gym and office. Sumptuously surrounded by views of trees, the master bedroom suite boasts a fireplace, access to the outside upper deck and balcony, a handsome walk-in closet and bathroom with a new steam shower and sunken tub with views of the outside greenery and mountains. Situated behind a mechanical gate with a long, winding driveway with room to park at least eight cars, the property’s grounds also offer a vast patio deck created from limestone and Brazilian Ipe wood with dining are, two fire pits and a beautiful Jacuzzi that waterfalls into the pool. Other highlights include the most sophisticated house technology equipment available, top security systems, imported Italian fixtures, designer lighting plan, temperature-controlled two-car garage with quartz flooring, upstairs laundry and a professional-grade sound system.
