Located in Westwood’s highly regarded Little Holmby on one of its premiere, tucked-away, sleepy tree-lined streets is this stately four bedroom, three-and-a-half bath 1926 Spanish.
With keen attention to today’s casual way of living, this sunny home has been beautifully updated, whispering quality, good taste and sophistication at every turn. Historic touches, left intact by loving owners, anchor the home in authenticity.
With its open floor plan, offering easy flow room-to-room, the public rooms orient to the backyard patio spaces through many banks of French doors and large-paned picture windows.
Gorgeous wood floors abound. The expansive living room area is large enough for several seating arrangements with the majestic fireplace as a focal point, its surround graced by original, hand-done moldings. That and the high, coffered ceilings are just a few of the many original architectural details throughout nodding to its 1920s roots.
There’s a lovely formal dining room and a study, both taking in views of the front. As the true heart of the home, the great room-like gourmet kitchen and family room area have vaulted, beamed ceilings accented by sky lights; the cook’s kitchen is sure to impress. Features include custom, glass door cabinetry with Caesar stone counters, a big center island, stainless steel appliances, vintage lighting with adjacent butler’s pantry. The family room and informal dining area is warmed by a stone fireplace and opens to the backyard through a bank of French doors. A powder room completes the first floor.
All bedrooms are upstairs including a fabulous master retreat. The spacious master has dual walk-in custom closets, one with a vanity and dressing area. Flexible also as a nursery, 4th bedroom or casita-type room, the master also has a spacious sitting room with its own door to the outside and a beautiful beamed ceiling overlooking the backyard. The sumptuous master bath is done in marble and has as large soaking tub, a large glass-enclosed shower and dual vanities. The secondary bedroom is ensuite and the third uses a full hall bath. There is also a romantic, covered veranda overlooking the yard. A laundry room completes this floor.
The uncommonly large, basically flat, grassy private backyard is a very special feature and comes complete with a beautiful al fresco entertaining space with an outdoor living room and cozy fireplace. There is plenty of room for a swimmers pool.
