Elegance by a Master of Design from a bygone era. By the late 1930s Paul Laszlo was considered by many to be the designer of choice for the Hollywood Elite. In 1946, the Mayos commissioned Laszlo to reimagine their home and transform it into a shining example of modernism and luxury. This property is on the market for only the second time. Julius Shulman not only photographed the home but was invited over socially by both sets of owners. Many of the Laszlo details are intact. The formal entryway opens up to an ample sized living room featuring a 1940s curved mirror by Carvarts over the fireplace. The sizable step up dining room currently houses an original Laszlo dining set and a “neon lighted drop ceiling”. A gorgeous step-down circular bar room has been a focal point for family and friends to gather over the past century. The adjacent lanai was added as part of the architect’s renovation. It opens up from the living room and contains a stunning brick hearth surrounded by a mosaic inlaid glass wall. Fine design elements of rose gold mirror are threaded throughout the home. The 24,000+ square foot flat lot features several areas for outdoor enjoyment including a beautiful pool and multiple green and garden areas. A pool house with a wraparound bar is perfect for an apres swim beverage of choice. Come see this lovely home and be transported to 1940s glamour.
