Everything Pasquale Rotella creates is electric, and his extraordinary Hancock Park estate is no different. The founder of Insomniac, an electronic music event producer and organizer of the Electric Daisy Carnival festival, has listed his exquisitely restored Los Angeles home, originally designed by architectural icons Hunt & Burns in 1914.
Represented by Jon Grauman, the nine-bedroom, nine-bath residence evokes the glamour and prestige of the roaring ‘20s and Great Gatsby while seamlessly blending period details and modern amenities. View a video tour of the estate below.
Set amidst European-style gardens, the gated estate welcomes guests through stately arches to the two-story entry, showcasing handcrafted details, such as elaborate moldings, wainscotting and tray ceilings. Formal living and dining rooms are on either side of the entrance, while the magnificent chef’s kitchen boasts custom finishes and marble countertops. Nine bedrooms include the elegant master suite, with dual spa-like baths, custom closets and a private terrace.
Designed for entertaining, the lower level boasts a speakeasy, cigar lounge, home theater and gym. Outside the main residence, find a separate guest house, alfresco dining terrace with café lights, outdoor kitchen, pool, spa and poolside cabana. Offering absolute privacy amidst majestic gardens and mature trees, the estate is among Hancock park’s finest, located moments from Larchmont Village.
