This historic Fremont Place home features exceptional elegance and extraordinary provenance in a truly special, architect designed beauty!
Located within the gates of coveted Fremont Place, the dramatic entry offers warm woods, a remarkably stunning stained glass window and gleaming parquet floors. The grand scale living room boasts gleaming paneling, a decorative plaster ceiling, intricately carved wood mantle on the fireplace, handsome mitered hardwood floors and glistening leaded windows. The intimate den creates a cozy setting for reading and relaxing. The formal dining room with carved fireplace mantle is an entertainer’s delight allowing Thanksgiving seating for 20! The charming updated kitchen with center island is the perfect complement to the style and comfort of this wonderful home. A sweet breakfast room leads to the “summer/garden” room overlooking the sparkling pool and lush gardens. A powder room plus a maid’s and bath complete the first floor.
There are numerous examples of masterful carving in the mantles, the balustrades and staircase. Upstairs are 5 spacious bedrooms and 4 baths. The master bedroom is extremely generous with a beautiful, light filled adjoining sitting room and dressing room. Each of the baths has period tiles from the late 1920’s era.
There is also an enormous finished basement ideal for play for all ages. In the 1980s, Muhammad Ali came here to perform magic tricks for the neighborhood children. (Ali’s Fremont Place home is also on the market. Join us for a progressive open house on Tuesday, January 22nd, from 11 a. m.-2 p.m. to preview both homes while enjoying a delicious lunch and dessert!)
The notable architect M. L. Barker also designed John C. Fremont Library (on Melrose & June), Good Shepherd Church in Beverly Hills and Cathedral Chapel Catholic Church among several other structures.
