Prime Little Holmby Traditional
Located in Westwood’s exquisite Little Holmby neighborhood on one of its most prime, tree-lined avenues, is this two-story Traditional by famed architect Paul R. Williams. Built classically with a central foyer floor plan, this stately home has six bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths and is sited on a corner lot. There are beautiful architectural details throughout the house: crown molding, wainscoting, leaded windows, wide-planked wood floors, pretty woodwork detailing and much more.
Enter through a formal foyer which most of the first floor rooms emanate from. A lovely, light-filled formal living room has a stunning fireplace with a detailed mantelpiece. Opposite is a large and sunny formal dining room with a big bay window and charming window seat running the width of the room. A butler’s pantry connects the dining room to the kitchen. Beyond the kitchen is a large laundry room which opens to two bedrooms, easily could be used as housekeeper quarters, guest bedroom and/or office plus a full bathroom. A sunny breakfast room is adjacent to the kitchen and opens to the back patio. A rich wood-paneled library with a corner fireplace also opens to the back patio; adjacent is a sunlit media room. A powder room completes the first floor.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms ensuite including a newer voluminous master retreat complete with a sitting area & fireplace, two walk-in closets, an exercise room or study and a sumptuous master bathroom. There’s a large luxurious soaking tub, a glass-enclosed shower, dual vanities with stunning marble counters all accented with beautiful glass tile. Through French doors is a veranda overlooking the newly landscaped backyard.
Set in very pretty stone, the large backyard patio features an outdoor kitchen complete with a built-in BBQ, sink, refrigerator and expansive counter space. Beyond is a wonderful pool and spa, stone fire pit, grassy area and a sport court all set amidst attractive landscaping. An outdoor sound system will set the mood for wonderful alfresco entertaining.
This lovely home has a two-car garage and plenty of storage. It is located in the coveted Warner Avenue School District and it is within close proximity to great shopping, dining and UCLA.
