Several years ago while shopping for an area rug I inquired with a salesman about one in particular that caught my eye. “Ah, this piece…”, began his reply, making it clear that this was not just a rug. Rather, this was “a piece” – a work of art. You kind of feel the same way while walking through the Thies Residence by architect Carl Maston, which recently came on the market in Studio City. The home feels like a work of art.

 The long walkway from the garage to the front door is covered and ends at a courtyard with a lovely stone-bordered koi pond at the home's entry.

 The home features 4 BR / 3 BA and 2,942 square feet of living space. And the polished cement flooring adds to the sleek luster of this light and bright home.
