In the heart of Los Angeles, set behind grand privacy gates stands a testament to an era of Hollywood glamor. The Fuller Estate, a Spanish Colonial Revival masterpiece, now represented by Rita Whitney of The Agency Pasadena, is a timeless Los Feliz home that seamlessly blends Mediterranean grandeur with Old Hollywood allure. Built in 1929 by the esteemed architect Harry Hayden Whiteley, AIA, this one-of-a-kind estate exudes elegance at every turn.
“The Fuller Estate as it is known, is one of the most iconic of architectural endeavors. In the past 28 years, I’ve had the opportunity to represent extraordinary homes with serious architectural pedigrees, and 2400 Inverness doesn’t disappoint with its plethora of unique detail and original appointment,” shared Rita.
As you arrive to the two-story rotunda-style entry, a sense of grandeur envelops you. Hand-painted artistry adorns the walls, while a stained-glass ceiling casts a timeless spell overhead. The sweeping staircase beckons you to explore further, hinting at the opulence that awaits within. Rita describes the estate as “sophisticated and timeless,” noting the flawless renovations that have preserved its original charm.
“The renovations are flawless. I particularly like the rotunda entrance with its stained glass ceiling and sweeping wrought iron staircase; it’s dramatic and unparalleled. The pool, spa and patio hidden behind white plastered walls, so private and alluring; and the views from the estate are panoramic. Quietly sitting on top of Los Angeles, just secretly peering out on the world,” she added.
The Baronial living room, with its hardwood floors and ornate fireplace, opens up to a balcony overlooking a pool and the vast expanse of Los Angeles below. French doors bathe the room in natural light, offering panoramic views that stretch across the L.A. Basin. Adjacent to the living room, a light-filled library with a honeycombed coffered ceiling and Prohibition-style bookcase bar adds to the estate’s allure, providing a cozy retreat for intimate gatherings.
The dining room, adorned with a hand-stenciled wood ceiling, invites guests to dine in style while enjoying breathtaking city views. A crackling fireplace warms the air, creating an ambiance of luxury and comfort. Meanwhile, the chef’s kitchen boasts commercial-grade appliances, a butler’s pantry, and an oversized island, making it a culinary haven for the discerning chef.
Ascending to the upper landing, one is greeted with five exquisitely designed bedroom suites, each meticulously renovated to preserve the 1920s charm. The primary retreat is a dream within a dream, complete with a fireplace, spa-like bathroom with stained glass accents, and two walk-in dressing closets. Downstairs, the lower level offers a plethora of amenities, including a gym, climate-controlled wine vault, media room, sauna, and baths, ensuring that every luxury is at your fingertips.
Outside, the lush grounds enveloping the estate offer a verdant backdrop for outdoor entertaining, while a private drive leads to a four-car garage and oversized motor court. The sweeping views from the property offer a glimpse of the world below, while offering privacy and peace of mind overlooking Los Angeles.
