The winding road, designed by John DeLario around 1926 and spanning 10,513 square feet, leads to the private gate of a secluded house on a three-acre hill overlooking 360-degree views of Hollywood Sign and Hollywood Lake.
Passing through the lobby, you can see the tower with a spiral staircase connecting several levels of the mansion, as well as an ancient elevator, decorated with wooden panels.
Among the features of the house in the Spanish style — arched openings and terracotta floor with bright antique tiles painted by hand.
Custom-made bending ceilings with open wooden beams and wrought iron also characterize the house located on the hillside.
Above the spacious formal dining room is a honeycomb-designed ceiling, which is close by the period-style chef’s kitchen featuring a center island and additional prep areas.
The mansion also has a loggia, facing the central courtyard with high palm trees, a fountain and a fireplace, where you can dine outdoors.
In addition to grand fireplaces, the home includes a wood-paneled library with custom shelving and two-story formal living room.
Decorated with stenciled wood beams, the formal living room in particular houses French doors that open to the expansive terrace with a lake vista.
The main wing of the apartment has recreation areas and double bathrooms with intricate tile design, as well as a branded tower with long seats and over 360-degree views. Three extra bedrooms for guests have the iconic background of Los Angeles, says in the announcement.
The mansion also offers many bonus rooms, including an office, media room and a chilled wine room.
Among the vast open area is an oasis with a swimming pool and extensive lawns, which grow pink gardens, sculptural hedges, citrus and perennial trees.
There is also a car court, a garage for two cars, a private gym with a large terrace and two rooms with kitchen for the staff.
