Years before the city of Beverly Hills was incorporated, there was the Beverly Hills Hotel, enticing guests to its door and luxury homebuyers to its vicinity. Helped along by the legendary acting couple Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, whose Wallace Neff-designed Pickfair estate holds a place in lore as the ultimate Beverly Hills lair, the area around—and, especially behind—the hotel came to be known as the premier spot in the city. Referred to in many circles today as the “Billionaire’s Horseshoe” for the long list of celebrities and magnates who have lived among its hallowed ground, this enclave within the 5.7-square-mile city of Beverly Hills exhibits some of the finest homes and estates in the world, not just the city.

901 Oxford Way is a modern masterpiece that serves as the ultimate showcase for exquisite family living and a trophy property for entertaining unlike anything before.

The private estate on a coveted lot directly behind the hotel includes nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, two private offices, and fixtures and finishes to impress the most distinguished tastes and please connoisseurs of modern architecture and high-end design.

A sea of white Italian porcelain slabs creates a striking first impression, while inside, every amenity for luxury living and entertaining are revealed in 16,646 square feet. The main living area acts like an immense great room, with one distinctive space comprised of multiple living and gathering areas plus a gourmet kitchen and a sleek, fully equipped bar. Push closed the sliding wall between the home office and sitting room for privacy. The same can be done between the formal dining room and living room, separating it from the rest of the main living area.

The one door you may never want to close is the one that runs that separates the living space from the resort grounds. Push aside a wall of glass, and you erase the barrier between inside and out completely, exposing you to all the best of southern California living on a grand scale.

The decadent master suite features not one but three fireplaces, creating a romantic aura that is further enhanced by the direct-access, covered cabana. A plush movie theater that opens into to the pool room/ lounge offers a full bar and a wine room with extensive storage. A game room with pool table extends the entertainment opportunities.

The immaculate grounds include a sports court; a saltwater pool outfitted with a waterfall, color-changing lights and underwater music; built-in seating areas, a fire feature, and lush landscaping to round out the resort feel.

The estate also offers two guesthouses, dual covered loggias, an elevator, and an eight-car garage with total parking for 30 cars.

901 Oxford Way is offered for $35,000,000 by Ginger Glass of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Beverly Hills North.
