Open House Obsession: A Breathtaking Renovation In Beverly Hills Seamlessly Melds The Old And New, $16MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 627 North Palm Drive, Beverly Hills
When: Sunday, June 11 from 2:00pm-5:00pm
What: A walled, gated and hedged 1929 mansion designed originally by architect Ralph Flewelling in his characteristic hybrid of Spanish Mediterranean and Mission Revival, now transformed into a serene 5-bed, 8-bath home with a pool and guesthouse, and brought to the market this week by Mercer Vine. Setting the stage, entry is through a courtyard with a quartet of old olive trees, evoking a classic Spanish caserio.
The Team: Renovation design by STANDARD Architecture with project/development management by Plus Development LLC; Jason Bolden and Adair Curtis (already well-known for their clothing and eyewear) of JSN Studio undertook the staging; the exceptional collection of fine art was curated by Creative Art Partners. The property is represented by Mercer Vine agents Adam Rosenfield, Justin Mandile, and Kyle Giese.
What We Love: It’s both beautifully crafted and looks back to vintage ranchero California, yet is now completely contemporary. Below, the dining room with a pair of Warhols over the sideboard.
Despite it’s valted ceiling, the climate-controlled wine room’s not buried in the cellar but in a central location with a view of both the entry courtyard and the pool.
Below, the master bedroom plus two (out of eight) knockout bathrooms.
