Michael Feinstein & Terrence Flannery List 1926 Gatsby-Style Mansion

Grammy-nominated singer Michael Feinstein and his producer husband, Terrence Flannery, have listed their 1926 Tudor Revival-style mansion in Los Feliz for $12.75 million. According to Mansion Global, the residence previously served as the site of the Russian Consulate from 1935-51.

Expect 15,391 square feet of living space on four stories highlighted by an underground tunnel for secret entrances and exits, as well as an upper level sporting an office suite, bedroom, service bar and one of two movie theaters.

The six-bedroom house also has a fitness room, pool, wine cellar and guest house with its own private entrance. 

Custom built in Los Feliz during the glamorous era of silent movies, this striking English Tudor-style mansion served as the site of the Russian Consulate from 1935 to 1951 and hosted to its share of lavish and storied events. Now owned by singer and entertainer Michael Feinstein and his husband, Terrence Flannery, it’s on the market for $12.75 million, complete with an underground tunnel for secret entrances and exits, sweeping city to ocean views and fabulous grounds showcased by formal gardens.

“The home’s well-preserved architectural details, history, views of the city and ‘old Los Angeles’ feel are priceless,” says Carrie Berkman Lewis, who is co-listing the property at 2405 Glendower with Fredrik Eklund, and marketing consultants Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon, all of Douglas Elliman.

Found on a half-acre parcel of land high atop the road—just a short walk from the Greek Theater and bustling Vermont Avenue restaurant scene—the six-bedroom dwelling is highlighted by 15,000-plus square feet of living space. Expect timeless yet elegant elements on four levels punctuated by restored woodwork, preserved original parquet hardwood flooring, Batchelder tile fireplaces, beamed ceilings, leaded glass, built-ins and custom Tudor brickwork. Among the many standout features: a chandelier-topped entry foyer boasting a wraparound mezzanine, an expansive master suite with fireplace, and a guest house with private entrance. A cozy and well-appointed movie theater on the fourth floor, meanwhile, offers city views via dormer windows, an entertainer’s bar, plush velvet finishes and a seating area, while additional amenities include a fitness room, wine cellar and pool. An architectural masterpiece requires a top agent to handle it.

“This is truly the best sleeper value in Los Angeles right now,” says Berkman Lewis. “It has everything—history, elevated architecture, understated elegance and emotional elements throughout.”

California Faucets, Cle Tile, Domingue, Floyd, Hem, Reform and Rejuvenation are some of the brands whose products adorn the house that is available for rent. Designed as a “fully shoppable residence”—every piece inside can be purchased—the intimate bungalow that was originally built in 1978 is spread over 1,900 square feet and comprises three bedrooms, two bathrooms and open living areas with a kitchen, dining room, living room and library, as well as an attached one-bedroom apartment.
