Almost 2 acres of gardens and landscape surround celebrated architect A.F. Leicht's grand art nouveau mansion overlooking panoramic city views from Downtown to the Ocean. Indescribable interior details emanate from Egyptian-inspired geometric pillars and repeating arched passageways overlooked by curving gilded ceilings. Public rooms inspire awe from the majestic 2 story Living Room to the octagonal lounge/study rooms with endless windows surveying private acreage to the stone staircase rising from the Entry Hall 26 feet and higher to the Observation Tower. Exit the Tower to an expansive Roof Terrace that echoes the Griffith Observatory for views, altitude and drama. Private bedroom suites provide separate comfort and are perfectly arranged for guests or family enjoyment. Historic pedigree of ownership and residents include legendary performers of the 60's music revolution to recent headline musicians to oil industry heirs and recognized artists. Gated Motorcourt and porte-cochere lead to separate Garage, Studio and Guest Apartment residence. Meandering pathways guide you to gardens, a basketball court, and an immense 2nd flat lot for infinite potential to create more living space or construct a residential destination to enhance the inspired compound setting. Timeless and compelling.
