Per the Listing: “This Los Feliz Italian Villa is ready for its close up. Thought to be the carriage house once owned by Cecil B. DeMille as part of the family’s Laughlin Park estate, the private, gated & secure home was completely renovated in 2014. Custom designed and appointed by Bravia Design, the 4 b/4b stunner offers modern amenities in a classic 1920’s setting. Formal living & family room are perfect for entertaining. DR with French doors leads you to the custom kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, Miele built-in coffee maker, beverage refrigerator and Caesar Stone counters. The master bedroom retreat w/huge custom walk-in closet, spa-like bath with designer finishes and a garden courtyard completes the first floor living area. Up the light filled staircase is another master suite and 2 additional bds and baths. Soaring ceilings, home audio, fabulous outdoor terrace with fountain, lush landscaping and parking for up to six cars provides the ideal retreat in the heart of Los Angeles.”
According to public records, this 9,645-square-foot property traded hands in October of 2012 for a relatively puny $894,000. Here’s what it looked like at that time. In addition to some lovely swan-shaped bannisters, the 1922 residence also gained about 800 square feet in floor area with its recent makeover. Listed in April 2015 for $2.398 million, it’s been pricechopped three times since.
