Built by famed architects Greene and Greene in 1914, and meticulously restored by noted designer Bill Sofield in 1997, this elegant home on Laurel Canyon Drive in Los Angeles is now on the market. Listed for $2,799,000, it comes with four bedrooms, three full baths, two partial baths and 3,782 square-feet of living space.
Sofield restored this home into his personal residence by re-creating an early 19th century time capsule, the listing notes. It includes custom designed, period tile work; a country-style kitchen; as well as commissioned art work from noted New York artist Nancy Lorenz. But this is not strictly a period home. It comes with all the modern features and conveniences. These include a studio/office currently in use as a screening room; a gymnasium with 15′ ceiling; and wired sound throughout.
The main floor has formal living and dining rooms, a library/den and the previously noted country kitchen, which is full of sunlight and outfitted with Patina walls and restored Magic Chef stove.
There is much more to be discovered. How about a beautiful Grotto entry, which opens to a Zen-like swimmer’s pool and steam room? You bet. This is truly a special and timeless property. Currently, it is tenant occupied and the lease may be extended until Oct. 31. Still, you will want to get the ball rolling if interested in purchasing.
According to the mortgage calculator, the estimated monthly payment is $12,226 given 20% down on a 30-year loan with a 4.0% interest rate. You can find much more information on this home designed by Greene and Greene, including additional photos, by clicking here.
