***BACK ON MARKET *** LANDMARK CELEBRITY RETREAT, updated and restored, attention to detail shines throughout every element of this former home of Hollywood icons Bella Lugosi, Kathy Bates, and John Cryer. Built in 1930 by architect Frank W. Green, throughout its rich history this storied celebrity compound has been thoughtfully improved with top end finishes and modern luxuries, while preserving and showcasing its original details and elegance. Situated behind a gated courtyard entry, resort-like grounds replete with mature fruit trees and garden lie within a short distance of the historic Beachwood center. Inside, a skylit entry foyer gives way to a flowing floor plan complimented by multiple living tiers offering a variety of spaces from which you can enjoy the sprawling landscape. A grand living room with sweeping views through the canyon to Palos Verdes, gourmet eat-in kitchen with new Wolf appliances, fully integrated wireless HiFi sound, and large formal dining room with panoramic southern facing views, complete a living space ideal for entertaining. On the lower levels, three en-suite bedrooms on separate floors - including a large primary suite with a private patio, fireplace and steam shower - provide both privacy and comfort. Outside, meandering grounds that have been professionally curated to interact with the natural surroundings incorporate a large, state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen, wine cellar, expansive outdoor dining space adorned with built-in seating, gas fireplace, and in-ground spa truly make this home the best of indoor-outdoor living. This rare opportunity is one of the most special and unique estates in Beachwood Canyon, it must be seen to be fully appreciated.
