This $20 Million Beverly Hills Midcentury Mansion Was Reimagined for Entertaining

·2 min read

Masterful artistry, indoor-outdoor living and a slew of amenities are just a few of the things that make 1024 Summit Drive so special.

The home, priced at $19.999 million, was originally built in 1924 and then redesigned in 1950 by notable midcentury architect William S. Beckett, who crafted countless residences for A-list celebrities. The property is set at the end of one of Beverly Hills’ most prestigious streets and is shielded on either side by towering trees. Sitting on just under one acre of land, the private sanctuary prioritizes grand-scale living with soaring ceilings and full-length glass windows with views over Los Angeles.

The home was redesigned again in 2015 to appeal to the modern buyer. There is now 13,500 square feet of living space, 12,000 square feet of which is indoors, and the home spans three stories with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Interiors are warm, sophisticated and modern, with high-quality finishes like stone, porcelain and wood. What strikes many about the home is the seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living, as each room welcomes the sun for a bright and airy vibe.
