Inside a Regal Retreat in Beverlywood


Bringing to mind a timeless English country manor or—more fittingly—the glamorous estates of Hollywood’s golden age, this impressive 11,706-square-foot residence in a convenient central Beverlywood location epitomizes a uniquely modern combination of traditional elegance with contemporary comforts and conveniences.

Refinement is the order of the day here, just minutes from Cheviot Hills, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip. It begins with a handsome brick façade, diamond-paned windows, gambreled rooflines, and ogee arches framing windows and doors. In the foyer, a gracefully curving stairway with an elaborate wood railing links two of the three levels. Throughout, flooring is appropriately august—from eye-catching stone tile with contrasting inlays to regal parquetry—while ceilings soar, chandeliers dazzle, and wainscoting and other millwork exhibits clean classic lines.

A floor plan this vast—conceived by revered area architect Ken Ungar—practically begs for grand gatherings and festive fêtes. The formal living room is warmed by a stone fireplace—one of four in the home—while the formal dining room accommodates a crowd with ease. Cooks and guests will appreciate the roomy kitchen and its stainless-steel appliances, cream-toned wood cabinetry, stone countertops, farmhouse sinks, and oversized island with counter seating. In the more-relaxed but resolutely stylish family room, a fully equipped wet bar is steps away, and floor-to-ceiling pocket doors disappear, giving way to a covered patio and the backyard. A well-outfitted theater and a sizeable game and billiards room beckon from the lower level.

Peaceful privacy is also easily enjoyed, of course, in the home’s generous bedrooms and a stately office, den, or study with richly hued coffered ceilings and a gas fireplace. The primary suite is a resort-caliber oasis featuring a spacious bedroom with a fireplace, two baths and walk-in closets, and a private balcony gazing out over the treetops toward the sparkling city skyline. The residence offers five additional bedroom suites with walk-in closets, desks, window seats with convenient storage, and other thoughtful built-ins. An upper-level lounge provides a comfortable space for secluded relaxation and entertainment.

The property comprises two lots and is one of only three estates of such substantial scale in Beverlywood. The grounds are an all-encompassing refuge allowing for effortless indoor-outdoor entertaining with its hypnotically lush landscaping and flora, refreshing swimming pool and spa, sun-washed terrace, sports court, and alfresco kitchen with built-in grill, refrigerator, and sink. Other highlights include a gym, a sauna, a steamshower, a 24-foot-wide two-car garage, and a driveway offering additional parking for the vehicles of visitors who will surely clamor for an invitation to this dazzling, diverting oasis.
