An Architecture Star in the Palisades

1461 AMALFI DRIVE  |  PACIFIC PALISADES
6 BEDROOMS  |  7,039 SQ. FT

This historic estate in the sought-after Riviera section of Pacific Palisades was originally built in 1933 in the Streamline Moderne style for Grand Hotel author Vicki Baum, and it has since served as home base for the late English actor David Niven, as well as actress and comedian Whoopi Goldberg.

Found on a 24,000 square-foot parcel of land along the desirable Amalfi rim, the private and gated residence has been modernized through the years, but still retains many of its original features. Think a black-and-white checkered floor in the foyer, crown moldings, ornate fireplaces, a pub, and an onyx-clad master bath.

Combine these assets with a spacious remodeled kitchen equipped with a large island and high-end appliances that overlooks an attractive stone-rimmed pool, as well as a detached guest house, and one finds a “…home [that] last sold over the asking price nearly two years ago,” says listing agent Dan Urbach of Compass.

“The property now is back on the market at a higher price point due to the resiliency of the Pacific Palisades and Palisades Riviera markets.”

Brentwood Country Estates is Simply Exceptional

12833 CHALON ROAD  |  BRENTWOOD COUNTRY ESTATES
6 BEDROOMS  |  8,500 SQ. FT.

This desirable Mandeville Canyon property offers the rare opportunity to remodel, enlarge or raze an existing Tuscan-style villa and create a dream home in the prestigious 24-hour guard-gated community of Brentwood Country Estates.

“This is approximately 5.3 acres, where approximately 2 acres is flat for someone to build what could be one of the best estates west of the 405,” says listing agent Santiago Arana of The Agency.

“Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dr. Dre made this community their home, as well as Tom Brady and Gisele, Heidi Klum and even Seal.”

One of only 13 estate sites within the intimate enclave, the address not only provides complete privacy but also sweeping mountain, canyon and ocean views, along with a large grassy expanse dotted with fruit orchards and a lighted tennis court.

Those opting to keep the existing Robert Earl-designed home can expect 8,500 square feet of luxe living space lined with oversized French doors that seamlessly open to reveal multiple terraces and loggias.
