Set back from the street, on a prime tree-lined block, this spectacular restoration of a Hancock Park classic is available for the first time. Enjoyed by the same family for over 70 years, and now lovingly restored by its current owner, this 5 bedroom 6.5 bath Paul Williams-designed Mediterranean is not to be missed! With original steel framed windows and refinished original oak hardwood floors throughout, careful consideration to preserve original details while delivering the modern amenities a buyer today would desire give this home rare warmth and depth.
A sweeping staircase in the double-height foyer leads to a grand entry and the step-down living room with a restored gas-burning fireplace and a large picture window. A beautiful formal dining room with a restored chandelier original to the house allows access to the backyard and patio. The gourmet eat-in kitchen offers marble counters, Miele and Subzero appliances and a French, high-performance Lacanche range. The kitchen connects via a tiled outdoor arcade and courtyard to a giant family room with a built-in bar. Custom-built French doors throughout the first floor all lead to the lushly landscaped backyard, sparkling new pool, BBQ, and a built-in dining counter. An office/maids with beautiful tiled bath completes the first floor. Upstairs there are 4 generous ensuite bedrooms including a huge master bedroom with fireplace and dual bathrooms and closets. Included in the master suite is a spacious retreat large enough for a home gym, office or private lounging space.
Other fantastic details include iPad-controlled Lutron + NEST system, multi-zoned Sonos system, camera security system and a generous porte-cochère. 2 car detached garage allows for ample off-street parking. Third Street School. This is the house you have been waiting for!
