Description

This elegant Hancock Park estate, created by master of romantic revival design, Gordon B. Kaufmann, is remarkable for the quality of its materials and craftsmanship. A grand home, it is consciously designed with a series of intimate spaces leading to breathtakingly expansive ones, making it as suitable for small gatherings and private moments as it is for gala events. Architectural Digest featured the spectacular 3-story living room, paneled entirely in Indian teak, with its minstrel balcony and walk-in fireplace. The space is ornamented extensively with hand-carved details. A secret door in the living room leads to an unfinished hidden space with a three-story ceiling and majestic leaded glass window, just waiting for its next incarnation as a billiard room, home theater, or library. Hand-hewn wood ceilings, a stone fireplace, custom bar, and French doors that lead to the garden distinguish the den. The intimate formal dining room adjoins an updated gourmet kitchen and breakfast room featuring leathered quartzite countertops, custom cabinetry, and Miele appliances. The second floor features a richly paneled library with his bath and walk-in closet. This classically appointed space opens to the primary bedroom with her ensuite bath and walk-in closet. A generously sized second bedroom and bath overlook the gardens. Two very private bedrooms and a full bath are situated on the third floor and offer multi-use possibilities, such as home offices, studio, or gym. Charming detached guest quarters and bath are located above the 3-car garage. Truly magical, the terraced parklike grounds can be viewed from most rooms. Meandering flagstone paths lead past luxurious outdoor dining and lounging areas, a custom brick bar-b-que and fireplaces to a lagoon-style pool and spa, koi ponds, streams, and a storybook cottage perfect for an artist's retreat or writer's lair. The overall impression is one of being far removed from the city, though Hancock Park is arguably the most accessible neighborhood in Los Angeles. This extraordinary 1/2-acre estate is minutes from Downtown, Beverly Hills, Valley communities, and all points west.
