Description

For the first time in over half a century, this majestic tennis court estate avails itself. In 1927 this specific site was built to become the largest and most private compound in all of the 'Bird Streets'. Situated on just under two verdant acres and set behind a discreet gated driveway, this blend of architecture, landscape, and rolling lawns is a complete juxtaposition to living in the heartbeat of the city. The centerpiece of this distinctive compound is this approximate 5,800 sq foot main home consisting of five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Steeped in authentic characteristics of a Tudor home, the exterior has an earth-toned color palette, leaded quarrel glass windows, large brick wood burning fireplaces, and timeless slate roofing. The authenticity dramatically carries into the interior with timbered ceilings, arched doorways, dark wood paneling, and a wooden staircase. Once inside, one is immediately drawn to the step-down living room with the original wood burning fireplace that seamlessly leads to a light bright sunroom and a bespoke bar transported from London. The first floor also consists of a generous eat-in kitchen, formal dining room overlooking the front garden and a warm window-wrapped den with a paneled conservatory-style ceiling. Upstairs, the vast primary suite has a large private balcony overlooking the koi pond with the sounds of a gentle waterfall. There are period-rich wood-panelled duel bathrooms, and large dressing rooms, both with private-office features and built-in cabinets indicative of the era, both with garden views through oriel windows. Two further bedrooms with ensuites, and window seats round out the second floor. The romantic A-framed peaked the third floor features a tree-top level bedroom, bathroom, and gym. The grounds designed by Mark Rios epitomize an English estate with gravel driveways, brick pathed vignette entertainment spaces, a vast rolling lawn suitable for croquet, a stunning oval water lily pond with fountain, integrated outdoor kitchen, and dining space with a grand wood burning fireplace. Mature towering trees provide not just privacy but ample sound barriers from the city below, rock pools, koi ponds and waterfalls abound. Rose, fruit and kitchen gardens lead off the house, while multiple meandering paths, one of which leads to a private sitting area that overlooks the grounds called the 'Bird Nest' provide a unique tranquil setting. Further amenities include a north/south championship tennis court with viewing pavilion, an elegantly fenced swimming pool with a well-appointed vaulted pool house. A two-story carriage house/garage with a double-height guest suite and library wall and vast wine cellar, suitable for any serious collector. This storied property has been home to very few, but its guests have been a venerable who's who of entertainment moguls, movie stars, rock royalty and Angeleno elites. A truly beautifully maintained piece of property with unmatched provenance.
