Respectful to the original 1927 John Byers design, but reflecting elements for a contemporary lifestyle, this magical and soulful courtyard hacienda in the Pacific Palisades Riviera has been restored with meticulous detail and sublime style. Set amidst extraordinary gardens and pathways designed by legendary landscape designer Jay Griffith, the estate is a gated, super-private retreat on a huge, tree-studded lot. The intimate and comfortable five-bedroom home, which encircles the pool, covered patios and gardens, feels perfectly scaled and presents uncharacteristic elegance and drama. A breathtaking tile-floored galleria provides the entrance to the master bedroom (with its own seating area, fireplace, and skylit bathroom) and to two en-suite guest bedrooms. Two additional guest bedrooms are accessed from the courtyard. Additionally, there is a large living room with bar, separate den, secret basement room, elegant dining room and superb kitchen/family room. Carefully selected fixtures, gorgeous paint colors, cultivated and eclectic furniture, a beautiful collection of photography, gravel garden paths, lush landscaping, a front porch with original hand-planed columns, fountains, fire pit and solitude all make for an extraordinary living experience. The property echoes a villa in a faraway land yet is moments from the Palisades Village and Brentwood shops, markets and restaurants.
