Situated in the exclusive celebrity enclave of Fryman Estates, this renowned Italian Villa-style Estate has been featured on many popular T.V shows. The sprawling frontage has been highlighted in countless episodes of “Keeping up with the Kardashians”, but what remains a secret is the magnificence of the beauty inside. This almost 8,000 square-foot home is detailed with one-of-a-kind craftsmanship and designer touches throughout, masterfully created as an art piece with furnishings imported from the best parts of Italy. Exquisite chandeliers illuminate the home allowing for its vibrancy, character and elegance to shine. A fully gated oasis that allows for privacy and seclusion from city life, yet it is minutes from the Westside restaurants, shops and studios.
Adorning the sprawling frontage of the estate is an 18th century Italian bronze fountain from the Malcolm Forbes Estate in Florence, Italy. A wrought iron and glass door opens to a spectacular two story foyer and details rarely seen in a private home – skilled artisans have crafted intricate and detailed plaster ceilings, hand carved custom woodwork, Venetian plaster walls, imported stone encased columns, hand forged wrought iron and elaborate window coverings made of Italian fabrics adorn every window – all recently completed in 2006.
The home boasts 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 2 powder rooms, dramatic formal rooms for entertaining, a drop down screen in the family room, study with custom woodwork, upstairs game room, sumptuous gourmet chef’s kitchen, butler’s pantry, and breakfast room, bar area, laundry and wine cellar. The first floor opens to an outdoor kitchen, expansive patios, salt water pool/spa and grassy yard.
The generous proportioned master suite offers a formal entry, wet bar, fireplace, dome ceilings, with fresco paintings and one of two covered loggias. The master bath provides dual sinks, steam shower, spa tub, two cedar closets, and access to pool area.
The antique chandeliers, 16th century sconces, 4 custom fireplace mantels, hand painted mirrors, 24 kt gold and other unique finishes create a layered opulence that takes your breath away. 7 Bedrooms, 9 Baths, 7,400 Sqft, Lot 38,398 sqft.
