This stunning 1928 Spanish-style hacienda with classic Hollywood glamour has been extensively remodeled and furnished by renowned fashion designer Sue Wong. Situated in Los Angeles’ prime Los Feliz neighborhood at the entrance to Griffith Park, Villa Feliz is a signature home that marks the debut of the Sue Wong Designer Estates brand. The home at 5370 Los Feliz Boulevard is listed at $4,995,000 with St. James + Canter & Associates in our Beverly Hills office.
No detail goes unnoticed in this “Living Canvas of Art,” which is turnkey from one-of-a-kind Andalusian furniture down to kitchenware and bedding. Sue Wong personally restored the 6-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom villa to its original charm and integrity, while adding modern updates with smarthome technology.
Each exquisite room in the 6,000+ square-foot home on a 15,171-square-foot lot has its own special flavor. Enjoy a glass of wine by the fire, while listening to the baby grand piano in the magnificent 1,200-square-foot living room. Gaze upon its custom-designed and created “Tree of Life” stained-glass window in the shape of a huge floor-to-ceiling arch, inspired largely by Viennese Secessionist artist Gustav Klimt. All 6 bedrooms are en-suite with Talavera tiled bathrooms and Moroccan influences.
Whip up a feast in the chef’s kitchen and dine like royalty in the formal dining overlooking the courtyard. Stay warm thanks to fireplaces in the downstairs primary suite, dining room, and living room. New double-pane windows help ensure a quiet ambience, and a Nest security system has been installed for peace of mind.
Turn on your state-of-the-art surround sound as you soak in the sun-kissed backyard’s glistening pool, cabana, and gazebo. A kiva fireplace and 2 fire pits warm up any chilly nights outdoors.
Escape the noise of the world in the enchanting cactus and succulent gardens that make you feel as though you are hours away in your own “resort” desert oasis. Experience the warm breeze whispering through the towering sycamore trees as they seem to gently set the stage for sunset. The full outdoor kitchen, BBQ, and bar make dining alfresco a breeze. Water features dazzle the night in the magical cactus and succulent garden.
Centrally located in Los Angeles, the villa is close to Griffith Park Observatory, Greek Theatre, hiking trails, and Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.
The charm of Los Feliz is unparalleled, offering the comforts of a small town, manicured tree-lined streets, wonderful boutiques and restaurants, curb appeal, and old Hollywood history. This is where film and music executives, artists, rock stars, and Bohemians choose to frolic and resign to escape the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.
