A house in the country and yet in the city: 100 South Laurel Avenue. This home, invisible from the street behind ten foot tall hedges, is located within the magnificent Beverly Grove neighborhood, allowing you to walk to LACMA, The Grove with its multitude of stores and fabled farmer’s market, and anything and everything in between, this home allows you to construct a truly contemporary Los Angeles life surrounded by the timeless milieu of yesteryear.
Once over the threshold of this 1925 home, it’s fantastic, Norma Desmond-esque furnishings—all gilt, patterned, or glittering—take center stage, and as this home was featured in both Elle Décor and House Beautiful, nothing less should be expected. Gallery walls of art, books, and photographs greet you at every turn, complimenting the every evolving textures, tiles, and hardwoods as you progress from room to room. Once you arrive in the kitchen, truly the aesthetic heart of the home, its perhaps almost garish or baroque styling envelops you, leaving you no choice but the love this enlivened space.
The bedrooms and bathrooms of the homes are true showpieces; light, bright bedrooms give way into dark, moody, broody, high gloss bathrooms, creating a wonderfully femme fatale ambiance—the wisps of cigarette smoke are just off camera.
The rear garden includes a fabulously appointed guest house, raised tiled pool, and plentiful seating areas to take in Los Angeles’ most treasured commodity, sunshine.
100 South Laurel Avenue encompasses 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms within 1,957 square feet on a 6,489 square foot lot. The home is currently listed by Eric Lavey of The Agency for $2,495,000.
