Sophistication, style and stunning architectural detail are some of the hallmarks of this truly remarkable Hancock Park estate. Designed by Reginald Johnson, Gordon Kaufman & Roland Coate, three of the most significant architects of the “golden age” of Southern California, this distinguished brick-and-stone 1/2 acre English Tudor Revival is set back on a tree-lined street, home to notable executives & Hollywood celebrities. Dramatic public spaces have been the site of grand receptions, charity events and chamber recitals. Architectural Digest featured the extensive use of teak paneling, including the spectacular living room, its soaring 24-foot ceiling & choir loft. Reminiscent of an English pub the family room has a bar. A gracious formal dining room with fireplace adjoins the updated gourmet kitchen & charming breakfast room. A beautifully detailed 2-story staircase ascends to a stately primary wing. A richly paneled study with a hidden door opens to the bedroom suite with cathedral ceiling, 2 baths, walk-in closets and a fireplace. 3 more bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths complete the main house.
A charming en suite guest quarters rests above a 3-car garage. Plus, a storybook cottage with kitchen and bath creates a perfect writer’s lair.
Gorgeous grounds are enhanced by an outdoor covered kitchen & dining area, a lagoon-style pool, spa, paths that meander along streams, koi ponds and fountain. The enchanting garden boasts numerous varieties of roses, orchids, hydrangea, lavender and camelia.
The provenance of this magnificent estate is unparalleled.
