Architect Harry Hayden Whiteley designed this gorgeous estate in Los Feliz by borrowing elements found in Andalusian architecture.
Built circa 1926, 4039 Cromwell Ave sits on a promontory measuring over half an acre capturing sweeping canyon and city views.
The main entrance reveals an only-in-Hollywood jaw-dropping rotunda entry with a curved wrought iron staircase, stained glass skylights, and a gorgeous hand-stenciled ceiling.
Filled with Andalusian accents, the 6,529-square-foot home features a grand scale living room with wood beam ceilings and archways, an adjacent library, a formal dining room, a kitchen equipped with our favorite brand-name stainless steel appliances, and multiple French doors opening to the private courtyard, pool, patios, grassy area, and gardens.
Three of the four bedrooms are upstairs, with the spacious master offering its private balcony where you can sit and enjoy the far-reaching views of Los Angeles.
With a long list of celebrity owners (the home is currently inhabited by the ex-wife of a former child star), it’s fitting the lower level has a nautical-themed, prohibition-era bar that was the original bar from the “Seven Seas” film set, screening room with rotunda foyer, and billiards/game room.
The home is listed for $4.998 million.
