Stephanie Quevedo is settling in with the Giordano, Wegman, Walsh, & Associates (GWW) team at Christie’s Ulterre.  She started at the end of May after previously being affiliated with Virginia Cook Realtors.  While her former employer’s closing was a shock, she feels it may ultimately turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

I have never understood the need for a sitting area in the Master bedroom. A chair or two, but if the closet is large enough — and walk-in — why do you need a sofa in the master? Can someone please explain? This $17,995,000 over the top home is in Los Angeles, of course: over 9,200 sq.ft. of living space, lower Bel Air, almost 35,000 sq.ft. of verdant grounds overlooking the Bel Air Country Club golf course.¬† Spacious public rooms include the lovely formal living room, grand formal dining room, library, & family room. The large kitchen is a chef’s dream with professional Viking & Traulsen appliances, center island, & separate breakfast area. The 2nd level of the estate houses all 6 bedrooms, all en suite, including the luxurious master suite with fireplace, sitting area, separate office, & dual baths & walk-in closets. The lower level of the home offers great space for entertaining with media & game room. The grounds are extraordinary with pool, spa, lawns, mature trees, Japanese meditation garden, & European garden with picturesque domed arbor. Wow.
