For those seeking never-ending vacation bliss, this resort-like Los Feliz Spanish Revival estate will keep its owner relaxed, recharged, and living in leisure year-round. Originally built in 1927, the six-bedroom home recently underwent a full restoration while maintaining the property’s character and warmth.
Signature Spanish design elements are incorporated throughout the property’s exterior and interior, including white plaster walls, red tile roof, terracotta flooring, rounded-arch doorways, floor-to-ceiling windows, courtyard and patios, wrought-iron accents, and ornate chimney tops.
Surrounded by greenery, the property’s gated motor court leads to a striking, double-height formal entry with a dramatic chandelier, ornamental spiral staircase with colorful tile risers, and painted mural on the cathedral ceiling. The first floor’s main living room features a carved fireplace, stained-glass accented windows, and access to a central courtyard. The formal dining room’s arched doorways and windows complement the curved coved ceiling, creating an intimate, inviting atmosphere.
The professional-grade kitchen is outfitted with Wolf appliances, wood cabinetry with spacious storage, long center island, and star-and-cross-patterned tile flooring that gives the room a warm, rustic look and lends to the estate’s old-world feel. Bedrooms include an en suite on the main level and three on the second level, including a primary suite with fireplace, vanity, and wood-paneled walk-in closet. Take in a movie in the cozy theater room or work up a sweat in the fitness center that overlooks the lighted tennis/basketball court. The backyard also features a pool and spa with adjacent cabana-like pavilion, pool house with bathroom, yoga studio, and garden with fountain.
