The living doesn’t get much easier than at the Carlyle on what’s known as The Golden Mile of the Wilshire Corridor. It has the VIP services of a fine hotel and the convenience of being steps away from the movie theaters, cafes, restaurants, shops, and museums of Westwood Village. And if you’re going to make the Carlyle your home, you might as well do it in style in the coveted southwest-facing junior penthouse, now offered furnished as a true turnkey solution with interiors by TAL Studio–the highly sought-after luxury hotel design group–with no expense spared to create the perfect three-bedroom, state-of-the-art hotel suite in the sky. Let’s take a tour, shall we?
The Junior Penthouse is accessed by its own private elevator foyer.
Meticulously chosen fabrics in warm neutral tones cover every surface of this contemporary smart home where each element of the environment can be controlled via ipad touchsceen.
The living room draws you in with unobstructed dramatic views of the city and the Pacific Ocean showcased from incredible 13-foot floor to ceiling windows. The furnishings are by noted designer Holly Hunt.
The chef’s kitchen features custom Poggenpohl cabinetry, Miele appliances, and an eat-in breakfast area that faces West.
The master bedroom suite is covered in rich fabrics and features its own viewing balcony.
The master features oversized his and hers bathrooms and closets.
The Carlyle amenities include 24 hour valet and doorman, concierge services, a fantastic gym, private wine storage, a conference room and lounge, and a heated swimming pool. Whoever makes the Junior Penthouse their home is very lucky indeed.
