Retired MLB first baseman Adrian Gonzalez purchased this imposing contemporary modern in Los Angeles last summer, according to public records; toward the end of last year, the house returned to the open market priced at $4.695 million.
From the street, the Beverly Grove home is a moody affair of gray scale tones, with a decorative flourish in the architecture of the upper floor: a series of towering rectangle shapes that enhance the home’s expression of proportion, and classify the home as a conspicuous first trophy.
Inside, the house contains many features desired by the contemporary buyer. The shared living area is open concept, with stone tile floors, a wet bar, a staircase with floating plank treads and a solid glass balustrade, a potent marble fireplace accent wall, a wine display, and a catering-ready kitchen. Tones are grays and browns.
The house spans 5,000 sq. ft., with five bedrooms and six baths throughout. Amenities include a media room, an office, a two-car garage, and Control 4 automation.
