This captivating, gated compound is a treasured sanctuary that’s been passed between Hollywood celebs with good reason. Built in 1933 the primary residence, just shy of 3,000 sq ft, is unique for the period in its custom style and because every room of the home opens to the outdoors. Detached guest house with ¾ bath, a recording studio, a play house/office, outdoor kitchen and a gated garden offer options for home, work and play. Sited on just over a half-acre and surrounded by lush landscaping, old growth trees and views of the hills the property is fully gated and features the latest high-tech security and privacy.
Spacious Chef’s kitchen and butler’s pantry/mudroom has marble countertops, Granada concrete tile floors, farmhouse sinks, brass faucets, La Cornue stove and a huge center island. The custom banquette in the kitchen opens to a garden with several large, raised garden beds. Between the kitchen and living room is the formal dining room featuring metal fret work built-ins; a high wood clad tray ceiling and sharing six sets of French doors with the extensive living room. Between an archway and down a few steps is the formal living room with an even higher, cathedral ceiling with detailed cross beams and an oversized fireplace mantel to center the substantial room.
Timeless details abound in the Master Suite - wood clad ceiling, wainscoting, Martinique wallpaper and dressing room with built in vanity. The en suite Master Bath has enduring style but has been modernized with marble countertops, dual sinks, a deep spa tub, large tiled shower and separate water closet. Four sets of French doors overlook the front and back yards with two leading out to a pergola covered brick patio.
The Second bedroom could be a second Master with its size and style with most of the same features - wainscoting, designer wallpaper, built in’s, vintage vanity dressing room and en suite bathroom with a separate tub, tiled shower, pedestal sink and original built ins. A long hallway with formal entrances from the front and back yards leads from the these two bedrooms to the bright Sunroom with custom milled seating, that could be used as part of the third bedroom, which is set up as a library with detailed wood walls, a brick fireplace and built in: bookshelves, seats, custom desk and cabinets.
