Real Estate Report: Is this the smallest house in Beverly Hills?



Probably not. But it must come close, and some of us don’t need much more than this stylish little villa offers.


The Basics: A 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath house in Beverly Hills, built in 1962. With a lap pool, spa and a 2-car garage, asking $1.715M.

Not So Basic: It’s a very modest house that’s been transformed into a chic stucco villa. Like a woman with multiple facelifts, it’s hard to tell what it looked like originally, but with its little parking piazza and walled garden, it’s very private and enclosed. Plus no lawn to mow. Slightly romantic, vaguely French.

Uphill, theres’ a big screen of bamboo behind the garage, and downhill, the walled pool and patio sit well above the street and surrounded by hedges. Below in the pool-adjacent living room, the grey stucco fireplace has a long stone hearth, hidden by that pair of Florence Knoll sofas.

The dining area, below, which also opens to the pool, and the open kitchen to the right. Not sure about the sofa/niche/bookcase thing, but whoever lives here has a great eye for textiles.

More pics at the links below, and it’s worth checking the aerial views to see how the house is shoe-horned onto a lot between other houses and a private driveway; the landscaping gives it a sense of privacy it might not otherwise have.
