Per the Listing: "This is one of PVE's premier Landmark homes designed by esteemed Beverly Hills architect Gerard Colcord. It sits on a magnificent lot beneath La Venta Inn, w/ a gorgeous Queen's Necklace view of ocean and LA basin. It has been totally restored to it's original glory by the Colcord decorator Tom Boland. The main floor Master Suite showcases a bay window overlooking views, a carved stone fireplace, private terrace entered through French Doors, & "his and hers" baths, creating a private serene hide-a-way. On one side of the gracious entry is the large formal living room w/ stone fireplace, on the other side is the den/library/family rm. w/ brick fireplace, hand hewn beam ceiling & cabineted wet bar... This gem was planned for both family life as well as elegant entertaining, available for the first time."
It's always a pleasant surprise when a Gerard Colcord designed home comes on the market. it seems that when people buy them they tend to hold on to them for a long time, like this home, built in 1974, and being offered for the first time (unless you count the time it was offered in February for a few months before being delisted.) The views are really spectacular, and the upgrades have been minimal to keep a lot of the Colcord charm.
