Living Spaces Mix With Charming Touches of Yesteryear at 720 N. Elm Drive in the Flats of Beverly Hills
Looking like it just stepped out of the pages of a storybook—with its ivy-clad, Tudor Revival-style façade—this striking Gerard Colcord-designed estate in Beverly Hills exudes historic design elements (think wood-beam ceilings, arched doorways, an intricately crafted staircase, and black-and-white checkerboard marble flooring) side by side with fully remodeled environs laden with colorful, ultra-luxurious contemporary finishes, and a wealth of pleasurable pursuits both inside and out.
“This home offers everything buyers are looking for today,” says Coldwell Banker’s Steve Frankel, who is listing the eight-bedroom, 11-bath property for $19.8 million. “It provides a sense of old Beverly Hills, coupled with modern, sexy interiors and every amenity for today’s lifestyle.”
Standing out is an elegant living room with walls perfectly suited for an art collection and French doors that open to the expansive yard, a custom green-paneled screening room with a fireplace, a large, temperature-controlled wine closet, private office with built-ins, and a gym.
A gourmet kitchen showcases a French La Cornue range, massive center island, and separate light-filled breakfast room, while the lavish master retreat is outfitted with a balcony, fireside seating area, a duo of spa-like baths (one with a chandelier and soaking tub, the other with an oversized shower) and dual walk-in closets.
Absolutely not to be missed are the picturesque grounds, replete with towering privacy hedges, a built-in barbecue, plentiful patios, a sparkling pool and spa, and a sports court. Adding to the home’s charisma: a two-story guest house featuring a full kitchen, four bedrooms, and two baths, as well as a four-car garage.
“This home is a rare find,” says Steve Frankel. “It’s an ideal opportunity to own a true trophy property in The Flats of Beverly Hills, in the premier 700 block of Elm Drive.”
