If you’re in search of a home with impeccable East Coast style, this place has it in abundance — from its charming white wood-sided and black-shuttered façade, to a greenery-encased backyard ideal for al fresco entertaining, and even a latticed bridge leading to an area boasting a sport court and hot tub; and now it’s available in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, asking $4.5 million.
Nestled on a just under a quarter-acre parcel of land, and naturally fronted by a white picket fence, the stately structure was originally built way back in the 1930s and last sold a little over a decade ago, back in summer 2012, for a speck over $2 million. Renovated and expanded through the years, the attractive abode features five bedrooms and an equal number of baths filtered across nearly 4,600 square feet of living space spread across two levels, plus a basement.
Within the front door lies an entry foyer displaying the original hardwood floors and a winding staircase, which leads to a living room adorned with a fireplace, wall of built-in bookshelves and cozy window seat. Other main-level highlights include a formal dining room with a bay window that connects via a butler’s pantry and wet bar to an all-white kitchen outfitted with bespoke cabinetry, a marble-topped eat-in peninsula that seats six, center island and high-end stainless appliances, along with a family room and an adjacent den flaunting a fun beehive fireplace.
Four bedrooms can be found upstairs, including a spacious master retreat that lies beneath a soaring vaulted ceiling, and comes complete with a fireplace and sitting area, as well as a walk-in closet with yet another fireplace and plenty of room for a work-at-home office space. A marble-clad bath has dual vanities on either side of a dressing area, a soaking tub and glass-encased shower.
The master bedroom also has access to the aforementioned bridge, which is perched atop a rock-clad patio below that’s ideal for hosting friends and family with a built-in barbecue and overhead heaters. Last but not least is the bottom-level attached two-car garage, which adjoins a newly renovated laundry room replete with a dog-washing station, and you can see it all this weekend at an open house.
