Paul R. Williams-designed Spanish Colonial fantasy lists for $7.25M

Centrally located within Los Angeles’ Hancock Park, 148 S Las Palmas Avenue, designed by the august Paul R. Williams, envelopes you into a contemporary, well-woven Gobelins tapestry, a world of warm whites, thick plaster walls, muted jewel tones, allowing you to settle into your very own, secure, jewel box, complete with a generous porte-cochère, currently on the market for the first time ever.

The contemporary renovation of the home reveals a multitude of enfiladed light, bright spaces, each one building upon the last, creating a world unto its own, a world where you can pull up in a British racing green Range Rover and hop out wearing Birkenstocks with frayed and faded rag + bone denim with your latest haul of sprouted bread and kombucha from Whole Foods, a world where you will transition into archival Helmut Lang later in the evening before heading up to one of those all glass and concrete houses that all look the same up in the hills for champagne and “sustainably resourced” white lines—there’s a certain beauty in requiring so little out of so many things. A pop of green from you, probiotics from there, conversation supplied via the nostril, an effervescent champagne coupe refilled and refilled and refilled, yet never runneths over.

The dreamy interiors are dappled in sea glass shades of blues, greens, and dusky pinks, creating a country calm within the middle of the metropolis.

The rear yard provides just the right amount of space for lounging poolside or under the chartreuse, undulating boughs of the Palo Verde tree.

The floor plan reveals an entertainment-centric floor plan that allows for an informal, easy, breezy indoor, outdoor lifestyle that is a signature of the Hancock Park neighborhood.

148 S Las Palmas Avenue, a 5 bedroom, 6.5 bathroom, 6,127 square foot home located on a roughly 11,800 square foot lot, is currently listed for $7,249,000 by Jenna Cooper of Compass.
