Original, iconic LA homes are often diamonds in the rough, and rarely have any of the original details and features preserved. But, there are exceptions that pop up on the market every now and then. This stately 1940's home in Holmby Hills, similar in architectural style to a Paul Williams, is one of them, with 6 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths in just under 6,000 square feet. Re-imagine a time that was once celebrated as an era of Hollywood glamour. Once you step through the front door into the Entry area with parquet floor, you are welcomed with sunlight from the sunroom with wet bar. The formal Dining Room to your left can comfortably accommodate 20 or more guests. The grand formal Living Room with detailed marble fireplace is to your right. The first-floor flows with the ideal floor plan. It is a home with grounds built for entertaining and large Hollywood-style pool and garden parties. Your inner chef will appreciate the Kitchen with commercial grade 6-burner gas stove/oven with grill/flat grill, overhead salamander broiler, and a complete exhaust hood vent system. The kitchen has a large island with two Miele dishwashers, great counter space and plenty of undercounter storage. Additional counter and storage space will accommodate your next holiday event with ease. The adjacent Butler Pantry is aptly situated between the Kitchen and the Dining Room to house all your special cookware. Around the corner from the Breakfast Banquette is the wood-paneled cozy Library with a fireplace and custom built-ins. The downstairs Basement includes a large Bonus Room and a full Bathroom.. If not enough, the spacious, private, quiet Backyard has lush, floral foliage and a brick swimmer's Pool and Patio that is perfect for barbecuing and hours of backyard fun. The impressive half-circular Driveway outlines a large grassy area with mature trees, fruit trees and a badminton/volleyball court perfect for croquet. The current owners have taken immaculate care of the property. There are two ways to get to the 2nd floor - the custom designed half turn Staircase to the 2nd floor is a statement of art, and the back Stairwell leads from the kitchen/service area to the 2nd floor. Each of the four upstairs Bedrooms including a Master Suite have their own full baths and ready-to-go dressing spaces. A Bedroom off the kitchen also has its own bathroom. Off the kitchen is a Laundry Room, as well. There is a tremendous amount of both original beauty and architectural elegance with great bones. This is a unique opportunity for a new owner to remodel, restore or undertake a massive project. Will it be you? Property is being sold as a Trust Sale.
