Nestled on an enchanting 13,836 sf lot, on a tree-lined street bordering Griffith Park, sits a magical home brimming with old-world European craftsmanship. Beyond an unassuming brick clad, half-timbered front facade, this historic c.1930 home welcomes you into a dramatic entrance hall with a curving, hand-carved staircase. A set of hand crafted doors draws you into the Great Room with its soaring vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams and trusses. Centered on the mantelpiece above the majestic fireplace reads the inscription in Old French, “To God, My Faith-To Friends, My Hearth,” said to have been hand carved by the house’s original owner and builder, Leona P. Wood. Seven-foot imported gumwood wainscot with intricately carved Oregon Pine accents surround an impressive ornamental wrought-iron picture window, framing an age-old Pepper Tree with sweeping views of the San Gabriel Mountains.
A rustic, inviting lodge-like study with brick fireplace, multi-color antique slate floors and tree-top views leads you to a spacious entertainer’s dining room crowned with an ornate plaster ceiling. The sunny Chef’s kitchen is tastefully updated with custom cabinetry showcasing Míele, Sub Zero and Bertazonni appliances. English slate shingle roof, stunning casement and leaded diamond paned windows, inlaid hardwood floors, antique heating registers, 3 restored and fully functioning fireplaces are just a few noted features across 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and 4,332 sf of living space.
Retire to your primary suite on the main level under an impressive corbel domed ceiling. Relax in a deep clawfoot bathtub in your en-suite bath with Dornbracht Madison fixtures and calming picturesque mountain views. There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with their own private sitting room, while the lower level offers the fourth bedroom, an additional updated bath, family room, and laundry room. Head outdoors to a lush, terraced garden where a third fireplace and a wood burning oven give endless opportunities for warm fall and winter outdoor entertaining.
Breathtaking park-like grounds by landscape designer Matthew Brown bestow total privacy, while creating a peaceful oasis where you can find your favorite meditation spot and become one with nature. Storybook pathways wind you along a magical gurgling stream with its own waterfall and pond. Two-car garage with ample storage. Notedly published in the Wall Street Journal in 2016, and featured in the books "Hollywood Interiors" and "Golden Light". Meticulously restored to preserve its charming period details, yet sensitively taken into the modern age, this once-in-a-lifetime character home is just minutes away from Griffith Park, the Observatory and the shops and restaurants of trendy Los Feliz Village.
