Mid-Century Glamour In Trousdale Estates, $14.5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Built in the early 1960s and previously renovated by the legendary architect-to-the-stars Hal Levitt in 1972, this spectacular residence’s design pedigree has taken a leap forward in the hands of interior designer Carter Bradley, with a comprehensive renovation has given it a glamour that’s ready for the 21st Century.
On almost a half-acre with wide-ranging views, the 4-bed, 3-bath, 2-half bath homehas been entirely brought up to date for today’s needs and is available fully furnished.
Trousdale Estates was originally subdivided in the mid-50s from the legendary Greystone Estate, and quickly became a desirable and eclectic new neighborhood with houses by Mid-Century architects ranging from Paul R. Williams to Frank Lloyd Wright, and glamorous residents ranging from Frank Sinatra and Groucho Marx to for some reason, Richard Nixon. It remains just as desirable today, with some of Los Angeles’s most extravagant residences and a star-studded, celebrity population.
Good Feng Shui: The main entry is through a courtyard with a fountain in the style of Isamu Noguchi, an enormous pivot door, through a foyer to the long living room extending along the pool.
Below, the sybaritic media room/lounge and bar.
What We Love: While the deep-toned primary bedroom facing the pool and patio is lovely, the dressing room is a clothes collector’s dream.
