Aaron Kirman and Allen Roth list 1932 Paul Revere Williams jewel in Little Holmby
One of the most admired homes in Little Holmby, a rustic half-timbered English Country estate designed in 1932 by celebrity architect Paul Revere Williams, has been listed by Aaron Kirman, president of Aaroe Estates, the luxury properties division of residential brokerage John Aaroe Group, and Aaroe Estates agent Allen Roth. The home, located at 200 Loring Avenue in Los Angeles, is offered at $8,000,000. During his career, Williams was the architect of choice for Hollywood stars, including Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant and many more. This home is an exceptional example of Williams’ exquisite style. Tucked in an enclave next to to the estates of Holmby Hills, it’s surrounded by rolling landscape, mature trees, winding streets and historic architecture — moments from UCLA, Westwood Village and the Los Angeles Country Club. “Williams was sought after by celebrities and socialites for his ability to create sophisticated yet understated showplaces — homes that were as gracious and comfortable as they were magnificent,” says Kirman. “This is a superb example.” The nearly 6,900 square foot residence is filled with the architect’s celebrated signatures: warm yet refined traditional design, elegant proportions, and grand spaces with a cozy feel. Hardwood floors, wainscoting, crown moldings, beamed ceilings, arched doorways, lavish tile work and other distinctive Williams details are seen throughout. There’s also a planned exterior/interior flow, a Williams innovation that became a Southern California hallmark. The expansive two-story entry opens to a large living room with fireplace and a formal dining room. A cozy den is centered around another fireplace. The country kitchen, with pantry and sunny bay windowed breakfast area, combines timeless charm with top-of-the-line conveniences. The huge master suite features a sitting room equipped with its own Miele appliances, including an espresso bar and wine chiller, and a sensational walk-in closet. The luxurious bath is highlighted by a fireplace, spectacular raised marble soaking tub, steam shower and spa. There are two more family bedrooms, maid's quarters and a detached guest house. The spacious weathered brick patio is one of the home’s most welcoming “rooms,” centered around an expansive oval pool, raised gazebo spa and outdoor kitchen area. “This home has been cherished and enhanced over the decades,” says Roth. “Today, it embodies the easy, impeccable style that’s come to represent Southern California architecture at its elegant best.” Represented by Aaron Kirman and Allen Roth.
