1800 Angelo Drive, Beverly Hills, 90210
Nestled behind private gates in prime Beverly Hills, North of Sunset Boulevard, rests a wonderful Spanish estate by one of Old Hollywood’s most famous architects, Wallace Neff. Originally built in 1926, Neff showcased his unique blend of Spanish and Mexican architecture, which came to define the “California” style for which he became most famous. The home’s subtle detailing includes red Spanish Saltillo tile, hardwood floors, wrought iron railings, curved archways and classic tiling that echo from another era. Adding to the romantic architecture, the house is built against a hillside reminiscent of an Italian Villa on the Amalfi Coast. The interior features an expansive wood beam living room with a fireplace and a lounge with an abundance of natural light.
A substantial and sleek modern chef’s kitchen by Boffi opens to a breakfast area and an indoor dining room with a patio. A private outdoor dining area with a BBQ grill and a fountain make it an entertainer’s dream! The luxurious master suite, with sitting area and fireplace, opens to one of five private outdoor terraces. Natural light spills into a cozy family/media room. Three additional bedrooms complete the upstairs with individual access to a plant-lined walkway and patio. All of the closet interiors have been finished by Poliform.
Beyond the main residence, park-like gardens with fountains and pathways intricately weave around the property, providing intimate local lookouts and unimpeded views of the gorgeous Hollywood Hills. Further amenities include a swimmers pool with cabana, an oasis spa with a waterfall, an art studio, and a two-car garage and one-car motor court. This estate, which is situated across from what was Jack Warner’s estate, once belonged to renowned Hollywood choreographer Busby Berkeley. This unique property represents a rare opportunity to purchase both a home and a legacy.
