Located on one of Hancock Park’s most coveted streets, this impeccably designed 5 bed, 4.5 bath 1920s Mediterranean masterpiece is a rare and special find.
Sited in a grove of mature olive trees, the landmark property has been fully updated to reflect a modern, chic sensibility while honoring its architectural integrity.
An antique honed European marble foyer leads to formal living and dining rooms, each with reclaimed herringbone French oak floors.
A completely renovated gourmet kitchen features custom cabinetry, honed limestone countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances.
French doors open to the perfectly landscaped garden and iron vegetable planters, just outside the kitchen doors—ideal for picking fresh herbs for cooking.
A beautifully appointed family room offers two sets of French doors that lead to separate outdoor patios, one covered with a fireplace, and the other offering a built-in fire pit and seating for eight.
Upstairs, the dramatic primary suite features a pitched ceiling, reclaimed wood beams, a gas burning fireplace, two ample walk-in closets, double vanities, a soaking tub, and a terrace overlooking the exceptionally private backyard.
Two generously sized bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bath, and another large bedroom with ensuite bath complete the upper level.
The Scott Shrader-designed garden is 20,000 square feet of pure magic. A dramatic outdoor kitchen with a covered dining area makes for intimate entertaining no matter the party size.
The gated, cobbled limestone driveway leads to a porte-cochere, a two-car garage, and an updated guest house which is currently used as a pool house, featuring a spa-like steam room and a flexible bonus space overlooking the extraordinary private pool and yard.
