Haberdasher to the Stars's John Byers-Designed Hacienda

New, 4 comments

This tree-shaded hacienda was built in 1929 by Santa Monica architect (and high school teacher) John Winford Byers. Located next door to the celebrated Gibbons-Del Rio estate on Kingman Avenue, the Spanish-style residence was the longtime home of philanthropist, art collector, and "haberdasher to the stars" Monte Factor, who passed away in December at 94. Per the listing, the 3,579 square foot house features four bedrooms, three baths, beamed ceilings, hardwood and tile floors, two fireplaces, a separate guest house with bath, a pool, and koi pond. Sited on a .37 acre lot, it's listed at $4.35 million.
