911 N. Beverly drive — Intricate Details
Beverly Hills | Spanish-style | Built in 1926 | 6,500 sq. ft. | $12.9 Million
A beautifully remodeled Spanish-style house originally designed by California architect Roy Seldon Price in 1926 has hit the market for $12.9 million. Found at 911 N. Beverly Drive, next to The Beverly Hills Hotel, this gated home previously owned by blues musician Gary Ballard was given a dazzling makeover by Tichenor & Thorp Architects in early 2000, all the while retaining original details such as beamed ceilings and tile.
Think 6,500 square feet of modern living space including five bedrooms (most notably, a master suite with a seating area and spa-like bath); a gourmet kitchen featuring a center island, butler’s pantry and breakfast room; a wine cellar and tasting room; and a meditation bungalow.
“When you walk into a house that has a soul, it changes everything,” says listing agent Tracy Tutor Maltas of Douglas Elliman. “Whoever ends up being the lucky owner will have a passion for design and appreciate all the intricacies that Price created…every room makes you feel something, and in this town, that is a rarity.”
