Sited in Prime Westwood’s Little Holmby on tranquil Thayer Avenue is this tastefully updated large Traditional home with warmth and charm in every corner, and picturesque views across this majestically wooded, mature neighborhood to the Bel-Air and Hollywood hills beyond.
The floorplan has been substantially updated and graciously opened with today’s casual lifestyle in mind; the flow from room to room is perfect for entertaining and the flow to the outdoors feels seamless, much like today’s newest designs. Meticulously maintained is the 1930s-era detailing, with gleaming wood floors, rich crown moldings and beautiful period trim. The living room, complete with a focal fireplace and views to the front yard, is large and inviting. The formal dining room, with its crisp wainscoting and chair railing is also amply sized and enjoys a large wall of windows. The great room, a large relaxed gathering place, flows between an open, enormous chef’s-style island kitchen, large family room, eating bar and sunny breakfast area orienting out to the gorgeous backyard through two sets of French doors.
Overlooking the lush gardens downstairs is a sumptuous den with an additional fireplace and walls of rich wood built ins. There’s also a fourth bedroom suite, perfect for guests or a housekeeper. There is a fabulous full marble guest bath with steam shower and access to the back yard and spa. Direct access to the two-car garage, with its additional Sub-Zero refrigerator, built-in cabinetry and completely level driveway completes the first floor.
Up a sweeping curved staircase, the second floor is home to a magnificent master bedroom suite complete with a romantic fireplace, soaring vaulted ceilings, a lovely sitting room and lavish, zen-spa-like bath. A true retreat with a glowing evening view of distant lights. Closet space is truly enormous and the views from the master and bath, as well as from its large private terrace, are inspiring. Completing the upstairs are two large and very light secondary bedrooms, each with their own baths, great closet space, and split from the master for privacy.
The beautifully landscaped backyard is absolutely party-ready with its well-equipped outdoor kitchen and barbecue, its al-fresco dining area, grassy areas, sunning deck, oversized spa and contemplative, secret-feeling garden. In one corner, there is also an intimate conversation area warmed by an outdoor fireplace.
This Thayer Ave home has it all, here in the coveted Warner Avenue Elementary district close to UCLA, Westwood, Brentwood and Beverly Hills.
