This spectacular listing could actually be four separate listings (hence, a lot of photos in this post). In addition to the main house there are two guesthouses, each of which are standout properties in their own right. And the land on which they’re all sited is a veritable parkland. The main house sits on the right side of this cobblestone driveway and the two guesthouses are tucked into the hillside on its left. Connecting the two sides of the property is a beautiful wooden bridge, seen in the distance.
The entry spans two-stories with a staircase featuring original Spanish tiles, beautiful wrought iron railings and carved wood beams.
As beautiful as this house is, it’s not an over-the-top, out-of-this-world type of home whose owner is striving to outdo the next celebrity around the corner. It’s a fairly modest 4 BR / 3.5 BA Spanish Revival that is as comforting and cozy as it is impressive. And I love it.
The step-down living room features a high beamed ceiling, huge fire place and lots of natural light.
A very handsome and respectably large wine cellar. I like the way one of the walls shows some of the home's original brickwork.
With west-facing view, this second floor sunroom is perfect for taking in the magical LA sunsets.
The pergola covered patio near the entrance to the main house features a beautiful stone fireplace, gas barbecue and lots of built in seating.
One of many tasteful additions by Sheryl is this beautiful bridge made of Brazilian Ironwood that crosses the cobblestone driveway below. It connects the east and west sides of the property and leads to the many paths and trails on the property.
I don't know if this is a registered landmark, but it probably should be. Built in 1885, this cabin is the first home that was built in the area and its condition is impeccable.
The home’s provenance is honored by the furnishings in place, which I'm told may be included in the purchase if desired by the buyer.
The home features 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, white oak floors, and eagle claw tub.
What better way to watch over the kids tumbling around a jungle gym than from a safari tent "office" outfitted with antique furnishings and phone.
Who needs a vacation when you have this right in your own backyard?
One could get lost here - figuratively and literally. And that's by design. The pathways around the property invite you to explore and play...
and relax and dream.
If a 1924 Spanish Revival and a cabin from 1885 aren’t enough to satisfy your thirst for historic architecture, the second guesthouse on the property might do the trick.
This 1909 Craftsman featuring 3 bedrooms and 3 baths is stunning. It and the cabin next door are worthy of being included on a tour by the Los Angeles Conservancy.
The woodwork throughout is absolutely gorgeous and all the hardware and fixtures in the home are authentic to the era.
