Myron Hunt-Designed Hacienda With Private Chapel in Encino

New, 37 comments


This sprawling Spanish hacienda was designed in 1941 by Myron Hunt, the versatile architect whose projects included the Huntington Library, the Ambassador Hotel, Caltech, and the Rose Bowl. But here's a welcome change of pace: the pulchritudinous property is located not in Pasadena, but in Encino. Sited on a 6.4-acre lot south of Ventura Blvd., the 7,274-square-foot residence features six bedrooms, four and a half baths, hardwood and tile floors, beamed ceilings, a fireplace, swimming pool and spa, a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house, and "private chapel and campanile tower." Last sold in 2003 for $2.695 million, it's now asking more than double that--$5.75 million, to be precise.
