Come and experience the exquisite restoration and modernization of a 2,781 s.f. 1930’s Mission Revival residence by architect Arthur W. Hawes. With all new systems, exceptional high-end finishes and carefully curated water saving landscaping, this gem was recreated at a cost of more than $700K. Located mid-block, it is positioned in a quiet section of a lush palm-lined street. At 8,786 s.f., it is among the largest lots to come on the market in South Carthay. Thick arches & plaster portico/courtyard entry opens to a classic soaring center hall. The hall leads to a series of impressive spaces: a step-down living room with a wooden ceiling rising to 14 ft and a fireplace; a bright, open concept island kitchen – family room combination with a second fireplace. These spaces wrap around an enclosed outdoor courtyard providing a spectacular multiroom entertainment space. The formal dining room is ideal for entertaining up to 16 people; each of the 3 bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and large closets. The oversized master spills out to a large shaded deck overlooking extensive gardens, patios and footpaths. The two-car garage has been converted to a top-flight gym/playroom with AC and sunshine from 3 exposures (it’s a possible office or ADU). Each detail, from the oak hardwood floors, ‘Malibu-style’ tiles, tiled patios, carved beams, detailed ceilings, wrought iron and hardware, to the luxury, modern touches have been well-chosen and meticulously executed. A stunning home!
