A truly special offering, this stately, quintessential 1930s Traditional on a large, flat lot in prime Little Holmby on sleepy Dalehurst Avenue is now available for the first time in over fifty years. This lovely home, steeped in quality and refinement, features a rare two-story guesthouse. Most unusual, it is 1,328 sq. ft. and was modeled to grace and compliment the original structure. With two fireplaces, one on each floor, it offers bountiful space for home offices and guests and takes in serene garden views. This beautiful feature could likely not be replicated today and is of great value.
The floorplan is sensible with an easy circular flow from a dramatic, two-story formal foyer complete with an elegantly sweeping curved staircase. The gracious formal living room is warmed by a lovely vintage fireplace and opens to and graciously relates to a sun-bathed family room. Both rooms share an open wet bar and the family room also features a fireplace. A stylish and unique oval-shaped formal dining room takes in backyard vistas through a wall of glass facing the gardens. The cook’s kitchen is complete with a sunny breakfast area, also with garden views, an adjacent laundry room and direct access to a two-car garage.
Upstairs features includes a rare four bedroom plan, including an unusually large sun-filled master suite with a fireplace, a sitting area, a walk-in closet, plentiful built-in storage areas and a marble master bath with dual vanities and a separate tub & shower. There are three additional sunny bedrooms, one en suite, the other two sharing a bathroom, Jack and Jill style.
The private grassy backyard is surrounded by lush, mature landscaping and an expansive brick patio, perfect for outdoor entertaining and large enough for several vignettes of lounging and dining.
All this in the coveted Warner Avenue Elementary School district and moments from UCLA.
