Beyond the Surface

This on-the-market Highland Park manse wows above and below ground.

FROM THE GROUND up, 3414 Beverly Drive dazzles all who enter, but what’s going on beneath the property’s surface might be the most interesting of all. Pull into the garage and a Phantom car lift will lower your vehicle to a spacious basement boasting 11-foot ceilings. Large enough for eight cars and wired for five flat-screen televisions, the subterranean space—which is being billed as Highland Park’s best man cave—features camera monitoring, broadcast epoxy floors, a wet bar with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and a work bench with a diamond-plated countertop. Designed by Brent Slocum of BK Design Studio and built by Robert Elliott Custom Homes, the 2017 newbuild recently hit the market with a listing price of $7.79 million and with special touches such as mature landscaping, handforged steel doors and museum-finish walls throughout, it might be one of the duo’s best collaborations yet. Featuring six bedrooms, six full baths and two half-baths, the 10,282-square-foot house has an eye-catching chef’s kitchen complete with a 60-inch range with double ovens and two Asko dishwashers. Like the front door, the vent hood is crafted from reclaimed Louisiana sinker cypress, bringing a bit of the outdoors in. Speaking of linking interior and exterior, custom oversize slider doors on both sides of the family room open the space to a generous outdoor living area that features recessed Phantom screens, a Lynx grill, and a Big Ass Fan and radiant ceiling heaters to keep the space pleasant no matter the season.
