Los Angeles noteworthy home

The Tenenbaum family recently sold and moved out of their beautiful, traditional Hidden Hills estate – right into a brand-new estate across the street.

Howard Tenenbaum, vice president of Van Nuys-based Keyes Automotive Group, and his family traded up to a newer estate, leaving behind 1.5 flat acres with spectacular grounds that include a pool, spa, sports court, covered patio, and barbecue center. (more…)

Impeccable, commercial-grade materials are evident throughout a boldly designed 8,000-square-foot Malibu oceanfront estate, currently the community’s highest-valued residential listing at $53 million.

French limestone is used liberally throughout. Almost all lighting features commercial-grade LEDs, and is wired to work with simple control devices. All windows are commercial grade with tempered safety glass.

Noteworthy homes

Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bays Rays recently purchased a residence in West Hollywood for $1.95 million. The team’s slugging third baseman now calls the 1925 Spanish-style house home.

The 1,850-square-foot space was recently renovated, and its defining features are the courtyard entry, beamed ceilings, and arched doorways. The home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a formal dining room, an office, and an updated kitchen. Outside, the hedged grounds feature a patio, a courtyard and sitting area and a large lawn.

Noteworthy Homes

Before you even step into this 1956 post-and-beam, you’ll feel as though you’ve walked into a dream. The home, which backs a spring-fed creek in Montecito, is shaded by mature oaks and other trees, and sits on more than an acre of land.

Once inside, you’ll find no shortage of natural light. The open floor plan, walls of glass doors and windows, brick walls, and large wall fireplace will cause you to instantly fall in love. Other amenities include a three-bedroom guesthouse, a detached studio with its own bathroom, a patio swimming pool, and a fire pit.

This breathtaking property is listed by Montecito agent Marsha Kotlyar for $3.65 million, has five bedrooms, and 4.5 bathrooms. More pictures and information on this property, which was recently featured on L.A. Times Hot Property, can be found here.
