Set on a hillside cul-de-sac above Sunset Plaza, the gated, three-level residence at 1489 Stebbins Terrace was custom-designed from the ground up by Melanie Mar Designs to make the most of its long, panoramic location.

In the expansive living/dining area, Fleetwood pocket doors vanish to seamlessly blend the long poolside and dining deck into the space. The saltwater pool overlooks the view, and a dramatic wall-spanning fire feature, visible on approach to the home, warms and lights the area. Massive glass walls and oversized windows open to the city lights below in every room. Steps from the upper-level master suite lead to a 700-square-foot covered view deck with built-in bar on the third level.

The entertainer's kitchen features Thermador and Bosch appliances, a striated marble center island with seating and built-in microwave, and custom laid and stained white oak floors. iPhone apps control all systems, from stereo and Wi-Fi to fireplace, pool and gate.

Melanie Mar's fascination with design dates back to her teenage years as a fashion model, when her discerning eye for detail and unique creative flair were already attracting notice. After designing and developing her own apparel line, she turned her attention to renovating and developing houses in her native England. She later brought her property development and design talents to Los Angeles.

From the floor plan and materials to the final colors and finishes, Mar meticulously orchestrated every element of the Hollywood Hills residence inside and out. "My goal was to create a livable piece of art where all the facets blended to inspire an instant emotional connection," she says. No detail escaped her attention, down to the custom-built garage.

"The transformation of this property spanned several years and it was clearly a labor of love," says Rose. "Melanie demonstrates a clear understanding of the location and the lifestyle if offers, and she has delivered a singular architectural expression with exciting, yet elegant design," adds Rose.

"Homes above the Strip use many ways of maximizing the view," says Aaroe Founder and CEO John Aaroe. "This one embodies an especially creative, forward and livable concept. We're proud to be chosen to represent it."
