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.
