Just listed: Paul Williams designed estate on nearly an acre in Palisades Riviera

Master LA architect Paul Williams set this timelessly romantic residence on nearly an acre of serene, flat parkland — overlooking the foothills and tree-covered landscape below. The 7-bedroom 6.5-bath home at 915 Amalfi Drive in the prestigious Riviera area of Pacific Palisades has been listed at $9,995,000 by Sally Forster Jones, President of Aaroe International Luxury Properties.

Williams was acclaimed by his wealthy and famous clients for meticulously and lavishly interpreting period architectural styles for a new age. This home, designed in 1937 for retail magnate Benjamin Zucker, has been cited as one of his loveliest works. Set back behind an expansive, grassy front yard, the fairytale manor with six arched dormer windows is framed by gardens and beautiful landscaping. Behind, a personal and utterly private park unfolds, where grassy expanses are encircled by manicured gardens, fountains, a charming dining patio and an array of shaded seating areas.

This environment is just as ideal for entertaining as it is for simply unwinding. The interiors are lavished with exquisite period details, from rich wood floors, crown moldings and wainscoting to large windows that flood the inviting interiors with sunlight. Gracious spaces include a welcoming formal living room, comfortable wood-paneled den, and formal dining room that easily hosts large gatherings. The piano room, with its double thirty-pane windows, is the perfect retreat for after-dinner drinks and conversation. The spacious sunroom combines a decorative tile floor with large windows and doors that open to the sweeping yard.

Three upstairs bedrooms include a spacious master suite with glimpses of the ocean. A sitting room on this level features wall-to-wall picture windows framing the scenic back yard and the dramatic view beyond. There’s also a guest suite above the three-car garage.

Located south of Sunset, this ultra-private manor is moments from the exclusive Riviera Country Club, with easy access to beaches, parks, Brentwood, Beverly Hills and the best of the Westside. And worlds apart.
