Sublimely yours. And only yours.

We treasure historic homes more than anyone else we know. Still, we can’t deny the intoxicating allure of being the first and only owner of a just-finished stunner like this one in Toluca Lake. 600-bottle wine cellar? 133-inch-screen theater? 300-sq. ft. master closet? Blazing Cat 6 cable? Streaming media in the master bath? Come on.

Extravagant modern amenities wrapped in timelessly simple European luxury: that’s the definition of this Toluca Lake masterpiece at 4270 Arcola Avenue. Listed at $6,750,000 by Craig Strong, Director of Aaroe Estates, it’s over 7,500 square feet of sheer opulence. The magic starts in the foyer, where breathtaking hardwood floors, soaring ceilings and a dramatic chandelier set the stage. A wide flight of curved steps floats you to the family room with wet bar and surround sound. Nearby are the library, formal living and dining rooms, and state-of-the-art theater with 133-inch screen, 4K projector and surround sound. The chef's kitchen is prepared for entertaining on any scale, with 60" gas range, griddle, Sub Zero refrigerator, microwave drawer and dual dishwashers. It also features butler's and walk-in pantries, an eating area, and a jaw-dropping 600-bottle wine closet. French doors open wide to the pool and patio. A laundry room and en suite maid's quarters complete this level. Upstairs, a sitting area opens to the patio and three guest suites. The luxurious master is truly a world apart, with sitting room, balcony, fireplace, 300 sq. ft. closet. Its indulgent bath holds a freestanding Kohler tub and dual steam shower; vast walls of mirrors define the dual sink area. In the large back yard, family and guests are invited to a saltwater pool with adjacent bath, fire pit, and outdoor kitchen with 57" Viking barbecue and beverage center. An array of outdoor gathering areas invite relaxed conversation, Hidden beneath all the beauty are whole house speakers, Lutron lighting control, Cat 5 voice and Cat 6 data cable, exterior cameras, and an electric charging station in the three-car garage.

This enchantment has never belonged to anyone. Until now.
