Historic Makeover

Yesteryear details meet modern accoutrements at this luxurious Windsor Square listing

Written by Wendy Bowman

Designed in 1914 for banking executive Milton Getz by noted architects Sumner P. Hunt and Silas R. Burns Jr.—best known as the creators of L.A.’s Southwest Museum and Wilshire Ebell Theatre—this stately traditional home recently underwent an extensive restoration and addition that combines original period details with contemporary amenities. Expect bells and whistles: wine cellar, theater, guest house, cabana, pool, spa, and smart-home technology.

“What I love about the house is that it retains all the original character of the era but delivers on all of the conveniences one would expect today,” says Billy Rose, who is co-listing the home with Blair Chang, both of The Agency, for $10.950 million.

Situated at 601 S. Windsor Blvd.—in the historic residential enclave of Windsor Square— the four-level, eight-bedroom residence features almost 12,000 square feet of living space rife with designer lighting, hardwood flooring, elaborate moldings, soaring ceilings, and pocket and French doors throughout.

A grand entry leads to the dining, family and formal living rooms, and a gourmet kitchen sports marble countertops, a large center island and professional-grade appliances. The upper level holds a spacious master bedroom suite with a large walk-in closet and four additional bedroom suites, while the basement level showcases a high-end home theater.

Outdoors, one finds a 26,756-square-foot lot highlighted by show-stopping gardens, a barbecue area, pool and one-bedroom guest house with kitchen. In other words, a fortune.
