Behind private gates on just over 3 acres, this Beverly Hills American English estate boasts covetable city skyline, canyon and ocean views. Interiors by renowned White House designer Michael Smith, whose romantic and comfortable aesthetic allows the home’s architecture to speak on its own. The home was featured in Smith’s book: The Curated House, as well as Architectural Digest. Enter the charming foyer with its architectural wood beamed ceiling and inviting comfort. Instantly, the gracious formal living room beckons, grounded by its original Georgian plaster fretwork ceiling, antique limestone fireplace, Venetian plaster walls and French doors overlooking expansive terraces and picturesque grounds. The captivating salon/office features green glazed millwork paneling, a lovely fireplace and “secret” bar. Retreat through the paneled billiards room, into the well-appointed gentleman’s library wing boasting a soaring coffered ceiling with hand stenciled design, bleached, waxed pine paneling, custom bookcases/cabinetry, a stately marble fireplace and an office with private entrance (potential bedroom suite). The formal dining room enchants with a striking Zuber panoramic mural wallpaper and French doors that lead out to the terrace. The adjacent, light-filled, chef’s kitchen flows into the airy, octagonal breakfast room with charming vaulted ceiling.
Step outside and enter a world of your own: magnificent grounds, both lush and private. Designed by Christine London, the garden includes mature towering trees and perennials, expansive lawns for entertaining, a heated gazebo for alfresco dining and viewing dramatic sunsets, “secret garden” arches, gravel and limestone paths, courtyards, tranquil fountains and a majestic four-season planting array. The topography is dramatic and each of the many outdoor “rooms” feature specimen trees, framed views and unique charms—from sun drenched gardens, to woodsy courtyards and dells, to sweeping emerald lawns, to contemplative retreats and belvederes soothed by the sounds of water, to one of the City’s loveliest tennis courts. The approx. 5,725 sf Tennis Court Building is the perfect space for a fully equipped home office or private secondary living space, with dedicated entrance and motor court. Currently it is an entertainer’s delight with an outfitted theater, entertainment lounge with bar, billiards room, sizable office, recording studio and golf simulation room. Additional compound amenities include: ample parking, gym, manager’s office, wine cellar; all outbuildings/gazebo design by AD 100 architect Oscar Shamamian. A rare and special estate to be cherished by discerning owners for many years to come.
