“Behind gates with expansive motor court and beautiful views. Classic 1956 Harold Levitt is timeless and in impeccable condition. The antithesis of the proliferation of modern boxes currently flooding Trousdale. On a large 39+k lot. The entry is flooded with light from the high ceilings and opens to the living room, bar, lanai and game room plus a large dining room opening to a special outdoor dining area.
The music room leads into the book-shelved library. The magnificent kitchen and butler’s pantry are stainless steel and generous from cooking to storage. The kitchen opens to a family room with large screen TV. Left of the entry are three bedrooms with baths (one is now a gym). To the right is the sumptuous master bedroom, with separate his/hers baths, looking out to a fountain and the view beyond. A sunny pool, lounge area, and bar and BBQ offer private swimming and sunning areas. Off the living room is a wonderful sitting area with an outdoor fireplace.”
