827 Malcolm Avenue, Little Holmby
Sited on a flat, leafy parcel on popular Malcolm Avenue within close proximity to UCLA, to area parks and to shopping and dining in Westwood Village, this exciting home was taken down to the studs in 2013 and rebuilt with fine taste and high-quality touches including Ann Sacks and Walker Zanger tiles, gorgeous Paonazzo Calacutta marble and rich wood and gleaming marble flooring. Handsome architectural hints punctuate every corner.
The floorplan is sensible and circular, offering easy movement for gracious entertaining room to room and to the glorious outdoors. The large formal living room with its dramatic fireplace flows to the spacious formal dining room complete with a stunning, professionally-styled lit-onyx bar. The top-tier kitchen features Viking appliances and a chef-inspired design and opens to a sunny, casual dining area, to a comfortable family room and to a cozy media room. These conveniently contiguous rooms open easily to the backyard. The media room could also double as a downstairs bedroom, if desired. An artfully designed full bath completes the first floor.
Rarely found in this fine area are five well-sized bedrooms upstairs, including a stunning primary suite with a sumptuous bath, ample closet space and views of the Wilshire Corridor and Westwood Village.
Set serenely against the backdrop of mature treetops, the driveway and backyard spaces are gated and secure and are perfect spots for kids to safely run and play in. Designed for year-round alfresco entertaining, there’s also a fantastic covered outdoor living room, a 400-bottle wine cellar and a BBQ station. Also, out back, there’s a 657 SF multi-purpose room with an adjacent full bath.
Other features include central heat and air, a security system and solar power. There is a true, two-car garage. All this and more in the coveted Warner Avenue Elementary school district.
