Resplendent period 1924 Spanish Colonial on one of Los Feliz most coveted streets. Commissioned by entrepreneur William C. Hay and completed by architect Charles H. Kyson this Architectural Digest published home truly embodies Hollywoods golden-era. Sited hillside, the multi-tiered property takes full advantage of panoramic city views while providing complete privacy at street level. Meticulously renovated and maintained Bonvue features a double-height grand living room, with coffered, hand painted ceilings, towering French doors, step-down den and wet-bar, all accessed from the scene-stealing foyer staircase. The imported English wood-panelled formal dining room includes a second level verandah, an ornamental plaster ceiling and stained glass vignettes, a bespoke detail that runs throughout the home and compliments the many hand painted oak doors. The primary bedroom offers an oversized en-suite and elevated closet. A chefs kitchen, 600 bottle wine cellar, elevator, family room, library, staff-rooms and home offices all round out this unique interior offering. The extensive grounds feature multi-level terraces, gravel pathways, hidden gathering spaces and repurposed speak-easy, outdoor dining, and an abundance of fruit trees. A formal lawn with period fountain leads to a private pool, visible only from the home. Truly an enviable, charming, one-of-kind piece of Hollywood history, moments from The Griffith Observatory, Greek Theatre and the other grand estates of Los Feliz.
