The Epitome of an Outpost Estate
C.E. Toberman’s classic architectural design abounds in the stunning example of Hollywood’s Spanish Revival movement. This 3,505 square-foot four-bedroom three-bathroom residence has been recently updated and showcases a dynamic combination of original styling created by the “Master of the Outpost Spanish” mixed with materials and features he could only dream of in 1934. Wrought-iron gates, sconces, and railings grace the thickly plastered chalk-white walls of home. The step-down formal living room features original mahogany wide-plank pegged wood floors (just refinished). The 12.5’ vaulted living room ceilings are supported by large, exposed beams. Floor-to-ceiling arched, recessed alcoves line the walls. An over-sized gas fireplace adds great warmth to the room—literally and figuratively.
The house’s light-filled dining room has an original wrought iron “gated” entry. The room has new arched French doors that open to a patio. Integrated into the dining room is the home’s kitchen. Renovated in 2012, 100% of this room is new to the house. The new materials reflect the house’s original era (Cararra marble, Basalt floor tiles, polished nickel hardware), but move it forward into 2012 and beyond. Stainless-steel appliances (including a 6-burner professional-grade range), solid maple custom cabinetry (with invisible hinges), under-cabinet lighting, and a double-door refrigerator make this room a cook’s paradise. A laundry room with side-by-side large-capacity machines is accessible through the kitchen.
1,000 square-feet of free flowing family space compliments the home’s formal rooms. New travertine floors and two fireplaces add ambience to the room. Informal sitting area, game area, dining area, and a second kitchen make this space perfect for large gatherings. Five pairs of French doors open to outdoor entertaining areas and a flat, grassy yard.
Two of the home’s four bedrooms are located downstairs. Both are en suite. One of the rooms has a sitting area/office area, as well. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms which share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.
In addition to the homes flat-pad back yard, an elevated pool and pool deck fills-out the home’s 17,920 square-foot lot. A new automated watering system takes care of the house’s versatile outdoor areas.
In addition to the home’s two-car garage, there are two bonus rooms beneath the house totaling 471 square-feet.
Located in lower Oupost Canyon, home to Hollywood’s A-list, the residence sits high above street level, surveying surrounding homes. Its site affords the ultimate in privacy as well as the ease of being close to all that Hollywood and the Sunset Strip have to offer. It’s also an easy ride to Mulholland and parts North.
