California- In 1927, on Chalon Road in the hills of Bel-Air, the owners of a dramatic 1.5 acre parcel with aweinspiring vistas hired an emerging architect, Gordon B. Kaufmann, to develop a unique vision for their property. The result is a truly iconic home that today is considered by experts to be a significant part of the architectural history of Los Angeles. Lovingly renovated and meticulously maintained, this extremely rare offering has been expanded and updated to accommodate 21st century living while graciously preserving the integrity and resplendence of the original design. Abundant detailing and amenities are found throughout the home’s three-level, 11,505 square foot floor plan. The generous use of rich varietal woods, ornately carved stone and light fixtures fashioned from sterling silver, onyx and fine crystal are superb representations of the era’s artisan craftsmanship.
