From spectacular public projects like the Getty Villa and the Greek Theatre to the most intimate of living spaces, every Zoltan Pali project reflects his utterly unique vision. “If Zoltan did not exist,” declared architect and collaborator Renzo Piano, “he should be invented.”
Pali’s incomparable artistry with ambience is on full view in this Mandeville Canyon retreat. Surrounded by nature, suffused in refinement, the transformation of this two-bedroom, two-and-three-quarter bath home captures the perfect synergy of Trousdale and Ojai, entertainer’s paradise and secluded escape.
The flowing floorplan delights the eye at every turn. Rich dark bamboo floors, Artemide sconces and soaring beamed ceilings are touched by natural light from room-spanning walls of Fleetwood sliding glass doors to the lush grounds, Brazilian ipe decks and long swimmer’s pool.
The gourmet kitchen and separate prep kitchen are ready for memorable gatherings, with Caesarstone, stainless and laminated glass countertops; top-of-the-line appliances; and custom grill. The secluded master suite is enhanced by a gorgeous light-filled bathroom and a huge custom walk-in closet.
Few words can truly capture the effect Pali has created in this simple space. Perhaps the best of all is magical.
