Winchton L. Risley FAIA – 1927. Nestled among a curated landscaped wonderland lies a very special English Tudor Revival home. Perched above the street behind a gate, the property unfolds into a majestic garden setting meticulously manicured and cared for by its current owner. Rows of several varieties of rose bushes surround the property (some of which date back 100 years).
Lemon, apple, pomegranate, Japanese Maple trees and a picturesque tree swing are but a few of the garden delights that are too numerous to mention here. The home itself is by architect Winchton Risley, who’s many accomplishments include the UCLA school of Law, several buildings at UC San Diego, the Coca Cola Bottling Company in Atlanta and Los Angeles, and several residential homes dotting the landscape of Southern California.
The gorgeous Tudor home gradually unfolds showcasing various original period details. The owner has spent years collected vintage lighting fixtures which have been installed throughout the house. The light filled living room boasts double french doors opening out to quaint European feeling patio and a fountain where hummingbirds come to feed.
The amply sized formal dining room leads into a stunning kitchen complete with a generous breakfast banquet. The primary bedroom has views overlooking the garden and the downtown skyline of Los Angeles. A custom designed bathroom featuring a rose quartz vanity is truly spectacular.
The elegant wallpaper by Maison C was designed specifically for this primary bathroom. And with a stand alone soaking tub, you may never want to leave. The walk in dressing room has several closets and ample room for a little aperitif while getting ready for that black tie affair. If you’re looking for a unique and sophisticated property, come on by.
