Located on picturesque, tree-lined Moraga Drive in one of Lower Bel-Air’s most desirable, quiet neighborhoods is this unspoiled, 1939 Traditional Ranch designed by renowned architect Allen Siple, known as the master of “Country Luxe”.
Sited on almost an acre of magical grounds, this true home is graciously set back off the road and is framed by majestic sycamores.
Much of its original architectural characteristics are intact throughout including beamed ceilings, crown moldings, carved-wood wall panels, wainscoting, decorative door and window trim, casement windows, and wood floors.
The single-story floorplan is sensible and opens to the outdoors from almost everywhere.
The spacious formal living room features a large brick fireplace and opens to a sun-filled family room and to a handsome wet bar.
Three amply-sized bedrooms are in one wing including a restful master suite, complete with a multitude of closet areas and featuring a large bath with a separate shower and soaking tub and dual vanity areas. The two additional bedrooms share a bath, Jack and Jill style.
The country kitchen, with its views of the glorious front yard, opens to a sun-bathed formal dining room.
There’s also a fourth bedroom, ensuite, and another family/media room.
The backyard nothing short of magnificent, truly private with seemingly endless rolling lawns; its expansive brick and stone patios and paths provide a plethora of al fresco moments, perfect for lounging and dining by the warming stone fireplace. There’s a grand pool area and also a sports court.
Warner Avenue Elementary School District. Close to UCLA and to shopping and dining in Westwood, Brentwood and Beverly Hills.
