With much of its original architectural details intact, this incredibly charming, 1931 vintage, Westwood Hills Mediterranean will romance you right from the curb. Coves and arches, French doors, wood floors, original casement windows, tile roof and thick, plaster walls are its signature elements many of which have been enhanced by tasteful and recent updates. Set on an unusually large, flat parcel, you’ll have plenty of space to create the al fresco California get-togethers you’ve dreamt of.

Here is the perfect home for large-scale entertaining. You’ll marvel at the large, expansive rooms throughout the first floor. The grand two-story formal entry features a sweeping staircase accented in beautiful Spanish tile, lit by a dramatic, wrought iron chandelier.

Impress your guests with comfortable, warm, flowing, gathering spaces; the formal living room and expansive great room showcase tall beamed ceilings and carved stone fireplaces. Create your culinary masterpieces in the gourmet cook’s kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances, a Wolf range, multiple refrigerators including one for wine, a big center island, a breakfast area and much more. A butler’s pantry connects the kitchen to the spacious formal dining room where large, memorable dinner parties can be easily hosted. Also adjacent to the kitchen is a family room with a professional-style wet bar.

The private quarters include five bedrooms, one ensuite downstairs and four bedrooms upstairs including a sun-bathed master suite with its sumptuous bath and its own enormous sunning deck affording, as does much of the upstairs, treetop views across this wonderfully wooded neighborhood and beyond to the Getty Museum and to the Bel-Air hills.

Work at home in your well-outfitted office, warmed by its own fireplace.

Most of the public rooms flow easily to the private backyard which is designed for all kinds of entertaining. Swim in the gated pool and relax in the bubbling spa. Many patio spaces are perfect for lounging and dining and the grassy area and children’s playground will be a big hit with the kids. There’s even a koi pond to set the tone of total relaxation.

The gated, off-street motor court leads to a two-car car garage and doubles nicely as a sports court for those after-school basketball games.
You can’t beat the location in the coveted Warner Avenue School District within close-proximity to UCLA and Westwood Village.

Creature comforts include multi-zone heating and air conditioning and a security system.
