Hancock Park is no Beverly Hills or Bel Air — and yet as one of L.A.’s most exclusive neighborhoods, it continues to beguile celebrities and design fans with its historic architecture, sprawling green lawns, quiet streets and less ostentatious feel. It is in this tradition that this 1928-built villa has been flawlessly restored and reimagined.
Poised on an over 30,000 square-foot lot and situated on one of the historic district’s most desirable streets, the estate captures a modern affluent buyer’s imagination with an unparalleled combination of craftsmanship, authentic detail, incredible volume and the best in modern smart-home amenities. Among its design triumphs are a grand foyer, library/office, formal dining room and a standout living room with a subterranean spiral wine cellar. A lower level lounge offers yet another opportunity for sophisticated-yet-comfortable entertaining. Meanwhile, the gourmet kitchen impresses with professional-grade appliances, dual islands, a butler’s bar and an adjoining family room.
A desirable bedroom arrangement, meant to accommodate both family members and guests, offers enduring flexibility with a first-floor guest bedroom suite and five bedroom suites upstairs, including the primary suite. Lavishly designed, this superior suite provides a sitting room, wet bar, fireplace, dual walk-in closets, marble bath and terrace overlooking the spectacular private grounds.
Beyond the residence rests a true entertainer’s paradise with abundant patio space, deck with firepit, saltwater pool and spa with swim-up bar, two kitchens, a lighted tennis court and a detached guest house complete with a kitchen, living room, bedroom, bath, gym, billiards room and theater. Everything one could ever need for leading a life of ease. An elevator takes you to all floors, further lending to the home’s seamless flow and ambiance.
