With the surrounding streets a “who’s who” of Los Angeles life, this Spanish Revival home in Brentwood could not be more central: Just north of Sunset Boulevard, the property is minutes from The Getty Center, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica State Beach and the University of California, Los Angeles.
On the market for $8.75 million, the home was built in 1926 and has been updated to include a chef's kitchen, a swimmer's pool and spa, and a guest house complete with kitchenette, wood burning fireplace and patio doors that open to the pool. It also has four bedrooms and six bathrooms.
It features the traditional Spanish-style contrast between tile and wall, as well as pitched, wood beam ceilings. The listing is with Barbara Tenenbaum of Hilton & Hyland, whose associate Eric Hassan tells us, “When someone thinks of a Spanish-style home, this is what it is.”
“Every room has tall ceilings, wide doorways, and large arched windows,” Hassan says. Featuring an open, spacious floor plan, the home is ideal for entertaining indoors or out. It boasts a gated entrance and plenty of parking for visitors, as well as new landscaping, a fountain at the front of the home, and a large dining area that opens up to the rest of the yard. And most areas of the home lead directly to the courtyard or backyard, making it a prime home for hosting.
At 4,690-square-feet, the home is smaller than some of its neighbors and perfect for someone who wants the perks Brentwood has to offer, but isn’t looking for a 10,000-square-foot house.
“This particular street and this particular part of the city is rare to find [on the market],” he said. “It’s one of the best streets in Brentwood.”
