Magnificently situated on South Beverly Glen Boulevard in the majestic stretch between Sunset Boulevard and Wyton Drive, convenient to any Westside location, this gated Traditional Estate has grandeur and timeless style.
With its circular brick driveway affording easy access and departure, this stately residence has a refined presence and casual elegance. The house, built in the 1930’s, has retained the quality, crown moldings, and sophisticated spaces from that era, but has been thoroughly updated as a modern residence.
The centerpiece of the foyer is a beautiful staircase. The center hall floor plan creates an easy flow from room to room with warming touches like dark-hued wood floors, lovely windows, and much rich woodwork.
The chic and spacious formal living room centers on a grand fireplace and opens, through a set of French doors, to the patio and backyard. The handsome study has built-in bookcases and another fireplace. Beyond the study is an expansive family room with a vaulted ceiling, banks of French doors opening to a retreat like backyard, another large wood-burning fireplace, more built-in bookcases, and a full, professional-quality wet bar featuring an ice-maker and temperature controlled wine closet for 200+ bottles
The gracious formal dining room, oversized to accommodate large dinner parties, relates easily to the magnificent, gourmet kitchen.
With sun-filled views of the backyard, the capacious and stunning kitchen is the true heart of the home and features everything a discerning chef would ever desire. Lovely custom cabinetry offers a multitude of built-ins framed by unique Wenge wood countertops. Stainless steel appliances include separate Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer units, a Dynasty range with double ovens, a Viking warming unit and more. There is also an informal dining area on one end.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a bedroom with en suite bath, perfect as housekeeper’s quarters, for guests, or as an office. There is direct access to the two-car garage.
An elegant powder room and two entry hall closets complete the first floor.
Upstairs are three very spacious bedrooms. First, there is a fabulous master retreat complete with a fireplace, walk-in closet and dual bathrooms. One bathroom has a separate glass-enclosed shower and spa tub, and the other has an oversized glass-enclosed steam shower. Another unique feature of this home’s master suite is an attached full room, perfect as a fitness area, as a private sitting room, or as a personal office space.
Each secondary bedroom suite is special and spacious. Each has a lovely bath. One has its own sitting room.
The vast backyard grounds are superb and an entertainer’s paradise, very private and wooded with the picturesque swimming pool set in a lush lawn. The kitchen, living room, and family room each open onto the backyard, making al fresco entertaining easy. There are multiple areas for outdoor dining, sunning, cooking, and lounging around the romantic fire pit and brick patios.
