Being offered for the first time in its history, this is a must-see Hollywood Regency Estate and certainly a one-of-a-kind in San Marino. Built and designed by Hollywood's most noted 'architect to the stars', John Woolf, and designer, Robert Koch in 1974. Known for popularizing the Hollywood Regency style, Woolf and Koch combined French, Greek Revival and Modernist elements in this single story mansion on San Marino's most prestigious street. The property boasts a flat 1.5 acre lot, with a pool, tennis court and Woolf staple -- a pool pavilion featuring two pool houses -- the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining. Other historic details of a Woolf house included in this beautiful home are the English Oak Pullman Front doors, a 'floating' fireplace in the formal living room and wood coffered ceilings among other unique architectural details. Floor to ceiling windows in most rooms provide breathtaking views and an abundance of light throughout the home.An architecturally significant home offering luxury, history and location, it is no wonder that the New York Times and Architectural Digest have said that, 'it was a certification of taste' to own a Woolf house.
