In a word, stunning. This Comstock Hills Traditional, much admired with undeniable curb appeal, is majestically sited on a leafy section of lovely Comstock Avenue. Emotionally evocative with cheer and high-style in every corner, this special home has been painstakingly maintained by one owner for decades and has been updated consistently over the years with tasteful appointments and quality craftsmanship, designed specifically for very gracious entertaining. Professionally and magnificently landscaped, there is a seamless feel as you move from the chic interiors to the glorious outdoors.
Bathed in an abundance of natural light throughout, there’s an airy feel via skylights, soaring vaulted beamed ceilings and light-wood floors. The sensible floorplan has wonderful indoor/outdoor flow from most rooms with strategically-placed water features and sculptures adding a tranquil and artistic feel. Customized built-in cabinetry with display shelves and ledges are throughout the home.
The central foyer opens to a formal living room, featuring a tall, beamed ceiling, big picture windows, a fireplace and French doors leading to the central courtyard, a spacious alfresco living area with a bar area and plenty of room for larger outside gatherings.
The formal dining room, with its gleaming wainscoting, is spacious, opening to the sunny cook’s kitchen with its breakfast area, custom cabinetry, multiple built-ins, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and center island. The open den with its elegantly-curved, granite topped bar and fireplace also orients easily to the central courtyard.
The primary bedroom suite is quite magnificent, with its tall ceilings and French doors opening both to the courtyard and to the backyard patio spaces. The sumptuous, spa-like primary bathroom features dual vanities, a separate soaking tub, an over-sized shower and unusually extensive closet space. Access to the private, wooded backyard is also enjoyed by the junior bedroom suite with its big bay window and window seat, plentiful closet space and beautiful en suite bath. A cozy media room with a built-in media center, an elegant powder bath, and a handy butler’s pantry area complete the main level.
The lower-level family entertainment space features a TV lounge area, a billiard area, another bar, another bathroom, a laundry room, additional voluminous storage areas and direct access into the garage. This space would also be perfect as a private office.
All this in the sought-after Fairburn Elementary School District and in very close proximity to Holmby Park, shopping and dining at the Westfield Century City Mall, to nearby Beverly Hills and to UCLA..
