At Home in West Hollywood

Award-winning designer Troy Adams has remodeled every last inch of his Los Angeles home over the past 15 years — and he’s finally ready to move on.

The backyard is both a private oasis and an entertainment hub. There are two gas fireplaces, a soaking pool, a spa, and an abundance of vegetation that enforces an atmosphere of serenity and privacy.
The designer and developer often derives his best ideas for improvement in his custom-designed kitchen.
The airy kitchen is decked out with top-of-the-line appliances and motorized cabinetry, plus a few delightful surprises — like a TV hidden on the back of the island (at right) cleverly aligned and visible to guests from the outdoor seating area.
Adams’ expansive living space and office area includes motorized Lutron privacy shades and luxe walnut hardwood flooring.
The greenery-ensconced backyard boasts uninterrupted city views.
Top: A generous row of windows brings soft light into the master bedroom. Bottom left and right: The master bath and master closet is Adams’ most recent remodel, turning both into one large, connected space.
An indoor dining room anchored by a dramatic floating staircase rounds out the house.
