Built in 1921 in Windsor Square–one of Los Angeles’ classic neighborhoods–this gracious estate has been immaculately restored by noted architect William Hefner. It was featured in the May 2014 issue of House Beautiful, and is on the market for $4.1 million. Notable neighbors include the mayor, whose official residence is in Windsor Square.
Restored with many of the original details intact, this 3,092-square-foot home captures the essence of a European estate. The spacious main house has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, while the charming guesthouse has a one-bedroom, one-bathroom suite with private gym/office and half-bathroom.
A grand two-story entry with original hand-forged iron railings adds to the ideal interior flow of the elegant living room with a fireplace, large dining room, and media room. The chef’s kitchen features a large center island with Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Miele appliances, plus a butler’s pantry.
The generous master suite offers a tranquil retreat with a walk-in dressing area and spa-like bath. The fine details continue in the custom cabinetry and hardware, rich dark hardwoods, wood beams, honed marble floors and counters, distinctive lighting, and original millwork. Outside areas are private and include a covered portico overlooking a resort-style pool set among classically designed gardens. Updated systems throughout include audiovisual.
