The style and sophistication of Fifth Avenue just two houses from the Hotel Bel-Air. Featuring renovations by renowned architect John Elgin Woolf, the impeccably pedigreed Hollywood Regency-style home neatly encapsulates the best of Woolf's work--a dramatic oversized entry, black lacquered double front doors, oval shaped windows, and gracious symmetry--all beneath a mansard roof. The exceptionally private home is well-suited for effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining on a grand or intimate scale--the French doors of the large formal dining room and a bright living room, with fireplace, both open to the expansive covered terrace with outdoor fireplace, in-ceiling heaters and multiple seating areas. Conveniently located on the first floor, the primary suite overlooks the private hedged garden and features a fireplace with marble surround and two full bathrooms with walk-in closets. The Chef's kitchen includes banquette seating for casual in-kitchen dining. A library and bar off of the living room are perfect for a night cap and movie. Upstairs is another large sitting room and four generously sized secondary bedrooms. The guest house has a bedroom and bath with a private entry, and a separate gym, office and full bath. Set on one acre in lower Bel Air, the manicured grounds include a grassy lawn, large pool and spa, vegetable garden, and a hidden, turfed play area that leads to a quiet knoll under a grove of heritage Oaks. Available for the first time in two decades, this is a rare opportunity to own a well-appointed estate of contemporary elegance and architectural significance in Los Angeles' most exclusive neighborhood.
