Timeless glamour. Modern spirit.

Set on what Vanity Fair once called “the starriest street in Beverly Hills,” this exquisite 1928 Mediterranean estate at 903 North Roxbury Drive has been extensively renovated by architect Richard Manion, one of the country’s leading specialists on bringing historic homes into the modern era. The six-bedroom, nine-bath residence has just been listed at $14,995,000 by Jacob Dadon.

The grand impression starts at the street, where elegant wrought iron gates open to a stone courtyard. Beyond it, another pair of gates opens to a vine-covered inner courtyard with fountain. A third set of gates in the main door, framed by a monumental stone surround, opens to some 9,778 square feet of grand yet welcoming spaces. Tall windows and French doors fill virtually every room with natural light and leafy views. In the granite-floored entry, a stairway with lavish ironwork rails curves upward, and a circular reception area with domed ceiling opens to the public rooms. French doors and windows in the high-ceilinged living room frame a garden view, while a massive 300 year-old French Burgundy fireplace welcomes guests.

Nearby, the wood-paneled family room opens to the central courtyard. Other luxurious gathering spaces include a formal dining room, library, den, bar and walk-in wine cellar. The vast entertainer’s kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances, a center island and a full casual eating area with French doors that lead to the courtyard. On the second floor, the lavish master suite overlooking the gardens is served by a deluxe walk-in closet, an office and a sumptuous bath. Three more en suite bedrooms and a gym complete this level. The estate is surrounded by breathtaking grounds, with an outdoor kitchen and both covered and open patios overlooking the gleaming pool. A two-story guesthouse and a three-car garage complete the amenities.

This is a rare chance to surround yourself in the beauty of the past … enhanced by all the amenities of today.
