Now available for the first time in 35 years is Pacific Palisades’ beautiful Bradbury House. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places as well as on our local list of Historic-Cultural Monuments, the Spanish Colonial-style home was designed in 1923 by Santa Monica architect (and high school teacher) John Byers for Louis Bradbury, whose real estate tycoon father commissioned Downtown’s famed Bradbury Building.

Modeled after the El Greco Museum in Toledo, Spain, the two-story residence was constructed of adobe brick with a thick outer layer of stucco, and follows a U-shaped plan around a central courtyard.

Notable interior features include a two-story entry hall, stenciled-beam ceilings, lavish tilework, and ornately carved oak mantels, railings, and doors. There’s also an attached two-story garage/guest house that was added on in the 1970s by the illustrious Wallace Neff.

And if that’s not impressive enough, the historic property also comes with an inviting swimming pool and lush yard, two vacant parcels across the street, and Mills Act tax benefits.

Asking price is $12 million.
