Description:

Located here in picturesque Westwood Hills is this two-story quintessential Traditional: a true home. Built in the late 1930s and home to silent movie director Rollin Sturgeon and his actress wife Edna Fisher Sturgeon, much of its original architectural characteristics remain intact. Having been impeccably maintained over the decades, this home exudes an abundance of charm at every turn.

Its classic center hall floorplan provides an easy circular flow making this cheerful house perfect for entertaining small or larger gatherings. Bathed in an abundance of natural light, the public rooms are open and spacious.  The large living room with its focal fireplace opens to the verdant back patio spaces as does the wonderful cook’s kitchen through banks of French doors. The true hub of this home, its bright and expansive eat-in kitchen has all the updates a discerning chef would desire–custom built-ins, stainless steel appliances and a big center island. The formal dining room is framed by a large bay window. A powder bath and pantry complete the first floor.

Upstairs are three lovely bedrooms including an expansive en-suite master bedroom with two walk-in closets. Two additional bedrooms share an updated hall bath.

The private, lush backyard has several tranquil alfresco spaces, the mood set by a trickling fountain. Perfect for dining, barbecuing and lounging. The hillside above, serene with its mature landscape, includes a beautiful oak tree and feels just like having one’s own nature preserve. It offers several areas for quiet contemplation while enjoying the views and is also a kids’ adventure paradise!

Direct access to two-car garage. Located in the highly sought-after Warner Avenue School District. Close proximity to UCLA, to Westwood Village and to the 405.
