Built in 1926 by Toluca Lake pioneer William Klump, this Spanish-Revival residence has been an iconic landmark in the community from day one. The Klump Estate sits solidly amongst the pantheon of Toluca Lake’s famed architectural gems.
Renovated in 2015, featuring an open modern kitchen and great room, as well as a superb master suite with a large walk-in closet. The thoughtful and dedicated renovation preserved the wrought-iron railings, arched windows, and curved doorways. Walls are thick plaster, and the gorgeous lighting fixtures and sconces harken back to another era.

Expansive grounds for large dogs. Original hardwood flooring runs throughout, and carved wood beams grace the ceilings. Four fireplaces, some bordered by authentic Calco tile.

Veritable orchard of Orange and Lemon trees. The grown Olive and Oak trees add to the homespun character, as well as add refreshing shade.

The compound enjoys multiple points of access, with a single-car driveway on the northern portion of the property perfect for welcoming business associates to the adjacent office.The elaborate wooden beams and original fireplace preserve the sense that innovative and important business was conducted here. The separate entrance is where a longer-term guest staying in the detached guest unit above the garage that comes complete with a kitchen.

Timeless charm abounds throughout the house. Intricate niches that house intriguing sculptures, bejeweled hardware, classic Calco Tile on the fireplace surrounds, and intricate wrought iron staircase railings make the home appealing to those who appreciate quality materials and craftsmanship.

The huge arched windows allow for generous streams of light. The floor plan presents ample secondary bedrooms and bathrooms. The dual staircases connect all corners of the house and make this grand estate feel like a cohesive cozy home.

The downstairs basement with daylight windows is ideal for a nearby studio exec to screen their latest movie release, or a Hollywood musician to record an album.

The entire estate provides great space for entertaining. A sun-drenched circular porch off the formal Living Room is just as enjoying when sipping a hot cup of coffee in the morning, as it is to enjoy a cooling cocktail while the soft glow of the sunset descends over the Valley. A pretty newly redone pool is tucked in the corner of the yard, framed by more of the historic trees. The immediate feel is that of a luxury boutique hotel.
