This is truly a Legendary home as it was the setting for classic movies like The Godfather & The Bodyguard. If that isn’t legendary enough for you then it may be good to know that John and Jacqueline Kennedy spent their honeymoon there.
The home is situated on approximately 3.7 acres of land 3 blocks away from Sunset Boulevard. The original landscaping done by Paul Thiene is still well maintained and key up to date. The entrance gates open up to a long private drive way that is one of the city’s longest private drives.
One of Los Angeles most important families commissioned the architect Godron Kaufmann to create this home or shall we say masterpiece. The H-shaped mansion offers a perfect combination of Italian and Spanish style. The paneled walls, balconies, French doors, floor to ceiling windows and arched ceilings are all some of the features that make this mansion unique.
The main level of the home includes a 50 foot entry hall with a loggia, a famed library with hand carved woodwork, a living room with 22 foot high arched ceilings and a stair case that leads to a second story wrap-around balcony. The second story contains double masters guest suites and staff accommodations.
Some of the more notable features of the mansion include a formal dining room, breakfast room, and family room with outdoor terrace. The outdoor terrace can accommodate up to 400 people for a sit-down dining. The garden level contains an art-deco night club, one of two projection rooms and a wine cellar.
