A Historic Home in Pacific Palisades Reflects Spanish Colonial Style

The Bradbury Estate, built for the son of real estate tycoon Louis Bradbury, is an architectural embrace. Constructed in the 1920s by famed architect John W. Byers, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom dwelling pays homage to the El Greco Museum in Toledo, Spain.

Designed with intricate details that include hand-stenciled wood-beamed ceilings, custom tile floors, and self-sustainable adobe craftsmanship, it embodies the legacy of the Spanish Colonial Revival.

“The uniqueness of a two-story adobe is an early tribute to green architecture,” says, Rachelle Rosten, executive director, Master Trust & Probate Division of John Aaroe Group.

“Since the adobe absorbs heat during the day and redistributes it at night, it creates an even temperature. Plus there are vents built into the living room to allow for fresh ocean air at all times.”

With a style that’s timeless and sophisticated, this home is an inviting cultural monument, providing its newest owner a chance to be a part of residential history.
