La Cañada Flintridge | The Overell Estate

607 Foxwood Drive | $8,995,000

Sotheby’s Concierge Auction: October 13-18th | Preview Event September 22nd

The Overell Estate, one of the most iconic and historic properties in the San Gabriel Valley, has been updated and expanded with the latest technology without losing its classic character – with construction quality that would be difficult and exceedingly costly today. A unique blend of Spanish Colonial Revival and Art Deco architecture. The design, a collaboration between L.G. Scherer & Cyril Bennett, was completed in 1929. With just over 13,000 square feet, the house has been expanded, remodeled, and redesigned by the previous and current owners. There are two APN’s totaling 1.18 acres with outstanding landscaping, including several fountains, a waterfall, koi pond, pool, spa, lanai, views galore, and entertainment areas. Between 1999-2003, the house underwent a total renovation and addition of 5,000 square feet, comprised of the master bedroom, family room, pub, theater, gym, sauna, baths, and lanai. All five bedrooms are ensuite, spacious, have tremendous closet space, and feature balconies. The three-level floor plan is excellent. In addition to the four bedrooms in the main house, there is an attached one-bedroom guest apartment with its own entrance. Old world charm reminiscent of Hollywood glamour.

Pasadena | 1904 Italian Period Revival Estate

312 South Grand Avenue | $4,995,000

This beautiful Italian Period Revival house is a prime example of a ‘work in progress’ – over the last 118 years. Originally built “on spec” as a two-story frame dwelling in 1904, this property evolved through the years until 1930, when after several additions and re-designs under the direction of esteemed architectural firm Johnson, Kaufmann and Coate, the house evolved into the Italian Revival design we see today.  Additionally, the property to the South on Grand Avenue was razed to make way for the spectacular Italian garden and pool.

Beverly Hills Post Office | Renovated 1928 Spanish

1807 Benedict Canyon Drive | $4,495,000

It’s finished with the highest quality fixtures and amenities desired for twenty-first century living. Located in beautiful Benedict Canyon, you are nestled in greenery and nature, yet just a few minutes drive from the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel. And let’s not forget Warner Avenue Elementary. Entering through the arched entry door, you’ll be welcomed into the two-story, turret-style entryway. The original spiral staircase with twisted wrought iron detail transports you to another decade, while at the same time, the black-and-white marble and Belgium-honed limestone flooring set the tone for the sophisticated color palette of the home.

Westwood | 1927 Comstock Hills Home

10346 Rochester Avenue | $3,079,000

Of all the hidden neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles, the tree-lined streets flanked by period piece character homes of Comstock Hills remain one of the most desirable within the city. Located one mile from the UCLA campus, the bucolic setting is far removed from the glass and stone high-rise buildings along the periphery, as they stand sentry over the houses, some of which date back nearly one hundred years. Built high upon a knoll, this 1927 home is, perhaps, the perfect solution for someone working at one of the venerable educational or financial institutions in the area. At more than 2,300 square feet with a lot totaling near a quarter acre, the property lends itself toward restoration or possibly being reimagined as a larger home. There are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a formal dining room, step-down living room with hand-hewn wood beams and fireplace anchoring the oversized room, butler’s pantry, basement, and two-car garage. Two of the bedrooms are en-suite, one of which is currently configured as an office. The rear, covered patio is perfect for entertaining or just relaxing. The backyard is large enough to accommodate a pool or an ADU, either of which will add tremendous value to the property.
