Here’s a very elegant three-bedroom home located just a half block north of Studio City’s exclusive Colfax Meadows neighborhood. Built in 1937, the English-style residence has recently been renovated, but retains a fair bit of period revival charm.
It may even have some Old Hollywood connections; per the listing, it was built by prolific hotel and movie theater developer Charles E. Toberman, though that claim is difficult to verify and it certainly would not be Toberman’s most famous residence.
Interior features include vaulted and beamed ceilings, multiple fireplaces, ornamental light fixtures and chandeliers, leaded glass windows, and French doors.
In addition to the trio of bedrooms, the 2,520-square-foot home has four recently remodeled bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, family room, and a formal dining room.
The house sits on a quarter-acre lot with a grassy backyard enclosed by rows of tall hedges. There’s also a swimming pool, spa, outdoor fireplace, and a pergola-shaded seating area.
Asking price is $2.695 million.
