In one of the best locations in Prime Little Holmby on one of its rare flat lots, this true home was designed masterfully by architect Godfrey Bailey in 1935, much in the style of the beloved architect, Paul Williams. So much of its original Traditional detail is intact and gleaming, having been lovingly maintained for decades by the current owner.
The living room is grand with its beautiful fireplace and French doors opening both to the front veranda and to the backyard. Adjacent and opening to the back is a light-filled study with stone floors, a bar and another lovely fireplace. The dining room, with its wainscoting and French doors leading outside, is very formal-feeling and quite spacious. The casual family room, with yet another fireplace and magnificent built-ins, takes in pretty green views of the sweeping front street scape. The breakfast room, with its romantic al fresco patio, has gorgeous built ins and leads to a sizable butler's pantry and to the kitchen beyond. The laundry area, a back staircase, and two guest bedrooms sharing a bath are nearby. A formal powder room completes the first floor.
Upstairs are four lovely bedrooms including the cheerful primary ensuite with windows front to back and a large walk-in closet. There's another ensuite bedroom as well as another two bedrooms sharing a bath, Jack and Jill style.
The backyard is flat and quite private with a large, swimmer's pool and ample patio spaces ideal for dining and lounging under the sun and stars. There's also a three-car garage that opens securely onto the property.
All this in the coveted Warner Avenue Elementary District and in very close proximity to UCLA, to Holmby Park, and to the great shopping and dining in nearby Westwood, Century City and Beverly Hills. Come make this magnificent property your own. Interiors have been virtually staged.
