Los Angeles

Behind a gated driveway and tucked away from view, is this remarkably restored and lovingly maintained 1933 Spanish. Perfectly sited on the large lot to take advantage of indoor outdoor living and city views, this treasure of a home transports you to another era or distant land. The motor-court provides an abundance of off-street parking and a magnificent front façade welcomes you inside. The grand entry features soaring ceilings, decorative tiled steps and wrought iron details that wrap you in the opulence of Hollywood’s gilded age. A large formal living room features hardwood floors, a stunning black marble fireplace with hand painted motif, vaulted ceilings and a large window to take in the views. An extraordinary lodge-like den features a highly impressive stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings with massive wooden beams and a discreet wine closet. The main public rooms all open to an expansive brick patio with a firepit, outdoor dining area and views of the city below. The upstairs bedrooms suites include a primary with a chic and sophisticated bath with exquisite freestanding tub and oversized steam shower. An expansive balcony offers views of the patio, gardens and city views. Exterior steps lead you to the lagoon like swimming pool and a full guest suite with its own private entrance. The home is a unique and rich exploration of textures with brick, stucco, stone and tile all working symbiotically with forged wrought iron, a gurgling water fountain and lush, exquisite plantings. The gardens are an enchanted glen of citrus, native plants and blossoming vines with a pathway to a hillside spa. This property, with four bedrooms but currently used as three and an office, is an exceptionally unique offering which must be experienced to fully understand how special it is.
