This Mediterranean estate has the best from its past, built in 1931, including stained glass windows, Spanish tiles, rod iron work, intricate designed ceilings and moldings, and the best from the present, since it has been completely updated with the top of the line in appliances, amenities and electronics. The decor was designed by one of the top decorators in Los Angeles, complete with silk wall coverings, fabrics and drapes, tapestries and antiques.
The entrance is grand and airy. The rooms are very large and all look out onto lush landscaping. Hard wood floors are throughout the house. Three plasma TVs are in the house. The massive family room and office look onto the backyard where all the glass paned doors can open to the backyard for the indoor/outdoor feeling.
All bedrooms are very large and each have their own separate bathrooms. The Master bedroom has a king size bed, pop up plasma TV at the foot of the bed, fireplace and his/her bathrooms, connected via a hallway to an office with fireplace, with doors opening to a balcony and a lush garden-like terrace overlooking the backyard. The "her" Master bathroom has a separate makeup area, and the bathroom has a separate bathtub and shower. The "his Master bathroom has a very large shower that can be used for a sauna.
The other 2 upstairs bedrooms are also very large with desks and lots of sitting areas. One has a queen size bed, the other has 2 twin beds.
There are 2 offices, one upstairs and one downstairs. The upstairs office can be used as a bedroom and is adjacent via a hallway to the Master bedroom. The house is fully equipped with high-speed internet and printers.
You may never leave the house with Netflix and Directv snuggling into the down fill cozy couch watching on the 75 inch screen tv or peacefully opening all the french doors onto the backyard and relaxing.
We have 2 older children, so the house is ideal for those who want to travel to a very safe child friendly home with books, balls, bike, board games, pool toys, and computer games. There is a big jungle gym in the backyard and basketball hoop. We removed the fence around the pool so it is safe only for those with kids who can swim.
There is a separate 2 story guest house. The downstairs of the guest house is used as a big playroom with:
ping pong table,
electronic basketball game,
The backyard has lush landscaping with mature palm trees, birds of paradise trees, azaleas, bougainvillea and fountains so that you feel like you are in the tropics. Also there is a very large pool and a jacuzzi. There is also an outdoor BBQ unit.
The house is an easy drive to Venice, Malibu, downtown LA, theme parks and the San Fernando Valley. Also serves as a comfortable home base for day trips to Santa Barbara, Newport Beach, the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. In short, a blissful oasis in the middle of teeming Los Angeles. The perfect way to vacation with children.
