Are these the best two acres of land in Los Feliz … and even LA?
Clearly, pioneer developer William Mead thought so. In 1911, he bought 400 acres adjoining Griffith Park from Col. Griffith J. Griffith and began to plan what would become one of the City's most beautiful subdivisions. Out of all that land, he chose this site for his own estate — the first home built in Los Feliz, “The Original Hollywood Hills.” Standing on the front terrace of the compound at 4533 Cockerham Drive, it’s easy to see the allure … and why this property, listed at $7,950,000, is such an unparalleled opportunity for a visionary buyer. It’s more than the stupendous view that sweeps uninterrupted from miles east of downtown all the way to the ocean. It’s the remarkable way the downtown skyline sits in the direct center of that view at eye level. The effect is mesmerizing, and you won’t find it anywhere else in Los Angeles. It’s especially magical at sunset, when the cluster of silvery skyscrapers begins to glow with sunset hues, surrounded by a carpet of twinkling lights. Designed by eminent architectural firm Hudson & Munsell, designers of the treasured 1913 Natural History Museum building in Exposition Park, the massive compound of four structures sits on a cul-de-sac just above Los Feliz Boulevard. The main house interior has been stripped to the studs, ready for a new owner to bring the next phase of its storied history to life. Architectural plans by Domani Architecture include a 14,315+ square foot main house, 3,536 total square feet of guest house space and a detached 1,102+ square foot 4-6 car garage. City permits are at the Ready to Issue phase. The pool house/guest house (approx. 1,900 square feet) has been impeccably remodeled, with luxury hotel quality bath, kitchen and finishes. There is a second freestanding guest house along with a chauffeur’s quarters above the original garage. A brick drive, circular motor court, spacious patios, winding paths, verdant gardens and hundred-year-old trees enhance the timeless sense of grandeur and elegance.   This is your once-in-a-lifetime moment to purchase an unparalleled historic property; complete its restoration; and create a unique, magnificent compound worthy of the original vision of the founder of Los Feliz.
