Tucked away in the coveted Fryman Canyon Estates, this authentic 1930s country English compound showcases nearly an acre of lush and secluded grounds and true period charm throughout more than 4,600 square feet of living space.
Designed by noted Southern California architect Arthur Munson, the circa-1937 estate is nestled amongst mature trees at the end of a long, gated driveway. Beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, casement windows with diamond-patterned grilles, and rich period accents lend the interiors a dignified tone, emphasizing the home’s architectural pedigree. Off the two-story foyer, a formal living room is heightened by a commanding brick fireplace and charming library alcove, complete with a vintage rolling ladder. Beyond the living room, an informal great room with a wet bar and seating area leads out to a vast backyard, while a large kitchen and dining nook look out over the pool and grounds beyond. Three spacious ensuite bedrooms, a sprawling master suite and multiple walk-in closets complete the living spaces.
The home's expansive grounds are truly transportive, featuring a voluminous swimming pool and spa, ample entertaining space, and a sunken championship-sized tennis court all surrounded by stunning mountain views. Just minutes’ from the Westside, this extraordinary retreat feels miles away from the city but is adjacent to the Fryman Canyon hiking trails and within minutes of the movie studios, farmer’s market, and esteemed shops and restaurants of Ventura Boulevard.
