685 Thayer Avenue, Westwood, CA
As one of the original neighborhood homes, this classic Little Holmby Spanish invites you back to the romance and style of the 1920's when homes were all custom built by highly trained artisans. This lovingly restored and updated property embodies this grand Hollywood period retaining all the authentic charm and details rarely seen today including intricate wrought iron railings, rods and accent pieces, Batchelder floor tiles, arched doorways, lath and plaster walls, steel case windows and original hardwood floors along with a full slate of updated systems. Set up from the street giving extra privacy and security, you enter the home by a relaxing, private front balcony into a barrel-vaulted center hall with period tile floors and arched doorways. Stepping down into the formal living room, it is easy to become overwhelmed by its grand proportions boasting a soaring wood beamed ceiling and baronial fireplace. This room screams for elegant evening soirees or intimate romantic moments in front of a roaring fire. On the other side is a warm and convivial formal dining room ready for chic dinner parties or informal family meals. Adjoining the dining room is a cozy breakfast area with views and an updated gourmet, galley kitchen with high-end stainless appliances ready for any aspiring chef. At the end of the main hallway is a superlative family room with hardwood floors, skylights, custom fireplace and wet bar ready to accommodate family game night, stream movies or host a football viewing party. The three bedrooms are located on either side of the house with the primary bedroom, featuring sitting area, hard wood floors, spacious closets, French doors, and sumptuous updated bath, and large family bedroom with hall bath on the south side and a maids or guest on the north. The rear of the house opens to sun-drenched all-season yard featuring newly installed outdoor kitchen with grill, side burner and refrigerator, retiled covered patio perfect for lounging on a lazy afternoon or alfresco dinner, and spacious grassy yard ready for the impromptu football or soccer game. Additional upgrades include seismic bolting, extensive new landscaping with exterior lighting, newer electrical wires and panel, improved drainage with sump pump, and new shelving/storage cabinets in the garage. Beyond the beauty of this glamorous home and neighborhood, you'll find yourself moments away from the relaxing atmosphere at Holmby park, the world-class shopping at Century City Westfield mall, the glamour of Beverly Hills, the vibrant nightlife of West Hollywood, the cultural offerings of UCLA/Westwood and easy access to the prestigious, award-winning Warner Avenue grammar school just a block away.
