The breath-taking luxury home at 9268 Robin Drive sits nestled in one of the hottest neighborhoods near the Sunset Strip. This neighborhood has been the home of many famous artists and celebrities, including Leonardo Dicaprio, George Harrison, and Keanu Reeves. It’s also well known for its “jetliner” views of Los Angeles and its bird-themed street names, such as Blue Jay Way and Swallow Drive. For this reason, the neighborhood is often referred to as the “Bird Streets.” The estate at 9268 Robin Drive isn’t the only mansion in the Bird Streets, but it certainly is one of the most spectacular.
The 17,000 square-foot luxury home at 9268 Robin Drive was created by XTEN, an award-winning architectural firm. It’s the perfect medley of style, sophistication, and elegance. It offers stunning views of the southeast Santa Monica Mountains and the city below. Just imagine those superb city light views at night. Its convenient location also adds to its popularity. It is only minutes away from Soho, West Hollywood, and major studios. It’s also near the many top-tier boutiques, restaurants, and nightclubs that Sunset Strip has to offer.
One of the most standout elements throughout the home is the use of exquisite stones curated from across the globe. The stonework is absolutely striking. The variations in colors and patterns are some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. The impressive use of stone starts at the exterior of the house with stacked stone on the top left. At the entrance of the house, you are greeted by a gorgeous stone stairway. Even the handles on the grand front doors are made of exotic stone.
Inside 9268 Robin Drive is a very open and seamless floor plan connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces. The main living area opens up to the patio with a beautiful infinity pool. From here, you can access gorgeous views all around. Another unique element inside the house is the indoor landscaping. There is a tree surrounded by shrubs positioned under skylights. It serves as a fantastic focal point and brings out the greens of the nearby marble as well as the lush green rug. You can also see the tree from the home gym, allowing you to feel connected to nature as you’re working out.

The kitchen, bar, and wine cellar are all designer elements—literally! They are designed by Armani/Casa, which is reminiscent of the opulent designs Armani brings to fashion. An Italian company that specializes in kitchens, Dada, designed the chef’s kitchen. The iconic designers of Boffi, another Italian company, designed the bathrooms.
Actually, can we take a moment to talk about the bathrooms? The beautiful white and gray marble in the master bathroom is to die for! Even the vanities are marble. I love the backlighting of the mirrors that make them look like they are floating. Plus, this bathroom has a coveted freestanding tub. To top it all off, the bathroom opens up to a private outdoor area. You can soak up some nature while you’re soaking up some suds. What more could you want out of life?
A smaller, guest bathroom has beautiful red-brown marble walls and black vanity. With all of the beautiful stone in this home, it’s hard to pick a favorite! The uniqueness and variety of the types of stones selected add so much character to the home.
