This wonderful and exceptionally private Trousdale retreat offers a rare chance to acquire a largely original, yet impeccably maintained late mid-century estate in arguably Beverly Hills' most sought after enclave. Offered for sale for the first time since being built in 1970, this home boasts bright formal living spaces, iconic style and a veritable sanctuary of protective pines, accented by Palm Springs inspired succulent landscaping.
Both back and front of the exterior are a marvelous exercise in geometric intersections that exude the swanky essence of a beloved and stylish era. In particular, the pool area is skirted by living and dining rooms with spectacular floor-to-ceiling mullioned windows; it is also accessible directly from the kitchen, family room and master bedroom, as well as a striking architectural shaded colonnade.
Period distinct features abound, including a marble-stepped sunken living room with a vast centerpiece fireplace, polished marble floors, built in foyer planters, an utterly groovy sunken bar and an absolutely breath-taking mid-century fireplace in a magical mad-men vibe family room; the eat-in kitchen is adorned with splendid book-matched wooden paneling to add further warmth and charm.
There's an abundance of space including 4 bedrooms as well as a wood-paneled library/office with built in desk and storage.
Above and beyond everything else, this property boasts extraordinary privacy, situated high above the street and protected on both sides by street grade and thick and tall mature growth.
Trousdale is of course legendary and this is precisely the classic style of home that gave it its reputation. Call now for a private tour, available by appointment only.
