Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent are looking to unload their stunning Spanish Colonial home in posh Hancock Park. The designers bought the mansion two years ago and gave it an elegant refresh, “retaining its soul but thoroughly bringing it up to today’s standards.”
The couple’s work was spotlighted last year in Architectural Digest. The magazine says they “layered the house with rustic French, Swedish, and American furnishings of wood and stone,” which they “juxtaposed with more tailored Continental pieces.”
Measuring in at 8,477 square feet, the dwelling, which was built in 1928 by prolific Los Angeles builder Edwin S. Rowley, holds a wealth of sumptuous features: a dramatic foyer with 17th-century marble floors; five bedroom suites, including a master with double walk-in closets; a paneled library; a screening room; and a formal dining room with coffered ceilings.
The home sits on 0.66 acres, and the grounds are equally beautiful. Among the stand-outs are a detached five-room guest house, a 200-year-old oak tree, an outdoor fireplace, and a harlequin-patterned pool deck.
Berkus and Brent paid $8.185 million for the property; it’s listed now for $13.795 million.
