Old meets new at this beautifully recreated home in the historic Los Feliz hills now on the market for $ 5.049 million
Modern-day necessities combine with Old Hollywood charm to create this striking Los Feliz masterpiece. Think a contemporary residence boasting large, open bedrooms with walk-in closets, along with an elegant infinity pool and spa flanked by an expansive Bangkirai wood deck, breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape and downtown skyline, and fully integrated smart-home technology.
“This home offers all of the elements that Angelenos are looking for,” says Justin Mandile, senior partner of Mercer Vine, who is listing the five-bedroom abode for $5.049 million. “From the open floor plan, to vaulted ceilings, [to] lots of natural light and functionality, this property has it all. A home of this magnitude and quality is difficult to find in a historic neighborhood like Los Feliz.”
Nestled behind stately hedges and palms on 13,000-plus acres at 2515 Glendower Ave.—near Griffith Park, Griffith Observatory and The Greek Theatre—the residence was originally built in the 1930s and completely remodeled by Vladimir Elmanovich of VEA Architects in 2017.
Expect more than 5,000 square feet of classic California-style living space on two levels crafted by Malgosia Migdal and Adrienne Valenza of MM Interior Design, including wide Anderson windows and LaCantina sliding doors, wire-brushed European oak flooring, and Italian stone and marble throughout.
Among the home’s standout features: an intimate sitting room replete with a fireplace, spacious dining area and media space; a professional chef’s kitchen featuring Calacatta marble counters and islands, custom white rift oak cabinetry, and Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances; and the aforementioned deck sporting an outdoor lounge and dining area ideal for large-scale entertaining or intimate gatherings. Finally, there is a motor court and two-car garage, as well as indoor-outdoor speakers and security cameras.
“A home such as this,” says Mandile, “is the standard of living in today’s society.”
