A home fitted for celebrities, this remarkable 14,000 square foot residence by architect Harry E. Werner is located on a 1.73-acre lot in Beverly Hills, California. Its prime location is already an alluring feature, but there is much more to this property than its setting.
We are talking about a Spanish colonial estate with perfectly trimmed lawns and beautiful gardens, an outdoor covered lanai with fireplace, a cabana, a pool, a spa, and lovely meandering pathways. Citrus trees and superb roses make the property a truly wonderful place. The separate guest house features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a nice living room.
The 1927 main house flaunts superb views of the city and a long list of excellent conveniences. It all starts with the superb octagonal foyer with spectacular staircase, and then it goes on with a huge formal dining room, beam ceiling in the formal living room, informal dining room connected to an outdoor terrace, beautiful family kitchen, gourmet kitchen, 2 bedroom suites, and a media room/library.
There is also a number of exquisite fireplaces in the house, including a 16th century one from France. Other high-end details include the Malibu tiles, original wrought iron elements, leaded glass, and gorgeous hand hewn beamed ceilings. The two-story residence was extensively renovated in 1987 by one of its former important owners, the rich Sultan of Brunei.
