Architects Everett Babcock and Robert Ainsworth created this wonderful home in the French Eclectic Style of architecture. Built in 1927 by J.J. Brintnall, this elegant home has been in the same family for over sixty years. Sited in the Arden Road Landmark District, the current owners commissioned architect Harold Levitt to create a wonderful new living and dining pavilion off the back of the house in 1961. With ten foot ceilings and walls of glass, the space is signature Levitt- using similar details of the homes he designed for Steven Spielberg, Lew Wasserman, Quincy Jones and Lionel Ritchie, just to name a few of his many celebrity clients. There are four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. The generously sized primary suite and one other bedroom are located on the first level. The other two bedrooms are on the second floor. All bedrooms are ensuite. There is a powder bath of the foyer. The floor plan also includes a library. The outdoor entertaining areas include patios adjacent to both the living room and primary suite. The asymmetrical pool seems to float just beyond the living room windows, another Levitt signature detail. The property is located only minutes to South Lake shopping and dining, Polytechnic School, Caltech, The Langham Hotel, and The Huntington Library and Gardens. This sophisticated property is a wonderful opportunity for its new owner to re-imagine it with todays lifestyle needs.
