Own A Piece Of The Past When You Buy 2600 North VermontAuthor:Candace Abbott
Los Feliz is a Los Angeles neighborhood that’s constantly celebrated for its charms and vintage spirit. Home to the Griffith Observatory, chic shopping spots, a rich design culture, Spanish style homes, and resturants that people can’t stop talking about, the neighborhood has yet another thing to buzz about…the sprawling property that sits at 2600 North Vermont, which is currently on the market for $5,499,000.
The Spanish Colonial property boasts over 10,000 square feet of history and unmatched beauty. Originally built in 1925, the home has had only a few owners, one of which includes its most recent, the Missionary Society of St. Columban.
The home, which was designed by Paul Williams, has 14 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, and overflows with intriguing details like rich molding and fireplaces, authentic original tiles from the ’20s, and gorgeous stonework. One of the property’s most stunning features is the grand foyer with its cascading staircase, vaulted blue ceilings, and vintage chandeliers spilling from above.
Unobstructed views of the Obersvatory are available from several rooms within the home and entertaining is almost a must here thanks to multiple sitting rooms with stunning natural light and vintage detail, a luxurious dining space, even a ballroom, and hidden speakeasy. Not to mention the property has parking for up to 30 cars as well as a magnificent circular driveway.
It’s hard to overlook a property like 2600 North Vermont as its potential is unlimited. Much of the home begs for someone to come in and add personal touches to enhance the vintage beauty which already exists. The grounds offer space for recreational expansion including a pool or sports court.
This is a chance to bring an age-old gem, it hasn’t changed ownership since the late 1950s, into a new era and do it with style.
