A rare opportunity to own a piece of Los Angeles glamour; a celebrity-owned home featured in over 20 publications including Architectural Digest, GQ, and Maison Du Monde among many others. This home originally designed and built by Harold O. Sexsmith in 1927, has only traded hands three times in 94 years.
Hidden behind a private and secure gate, this sunny south-facing property boasts a home flooded with sunlight throughout the day and mature gardens bursting with fruit trees that hang romantically over the pool. From the original coffered front door to the hardwood floors, the arched openings to the casement windows, every detail of this one-of-a-kind home has been meticulously restored, maintaining the original charm, warmth, and essence of the 1920s. Upon entering one is met by a gracious foyer, accentuated by original period tile floors. To the left, a stylish and sophisticated formal living room, whose surrounding windows and over-all scale allow light in from every side, like an over-sized, original stone wood-burning fireplace provides art and warmth. The living room opens to indoor/outdoor dualling lounges, which are connected by French doors and offer sanctum for more intimate gatherings. A quiet, private backyard features two outdoor dining areas, a fire pit/lounge, and a pool designed to blend seamlessly into its milieu. The main floor is completed by a fully equipped eat-in cook’s kitchen, a large pantry with accompanying laundry facilities, and a guest bedroom with a full ensuite bathroom. The upstairs is comprised of the primary suite, boasting a chic primary bathroom and large walk-in closet; two additional guest bedrooms and a bathroom; a spacious office; and a Juliet balcony overlooking the front garden. Other features include a basement and a two-car garage. In the vein of The Chateau Marmont, and a celebration of the roaring 20s, this home is the epitome of style.
