Legendary tennis court estate, rich with celebrity history, located on a celebrated cul-de-sac street in BHPO. 1.5 acres surround multi-building gated secure compound including a Paul Williams grand Traditional main house, 2 Guest Houses, recreation bldg including Bowling Alley & Billiards lounge, jogging track and Putting Green. Interiors are beautifully tuned to the current design themes of 'comfortable luxury' and focus on all the natural sunlight entering the rooms, washing across gorgeous deeply hewn hardwood floors, rich earth-tone wall colors, endless sets of French doors opening to the outdoor destinations, up-to-the-minute stylish Kitchen & baths-- all the reflection of understated sophistication everywhere you look. The residential compound provides 2 Primary Suites, one in the Main House, the other in a semi-attached Guest House. Some rooms overlook the azure Pool, others the championship sunken Tennis Court, and others the rolling lawn or golf green. Hollywood events with over 500 attendees have enjoyed the fun recreation bldg with its 2-lane bowling alley plus billiards table and surrounding lounge. This is a veritable vacation retreat within the city, yet one would not realize the city is outside the high walls & thick hedges. Renowned architect Paul Williams was commissioned to create and build the residence for actor Bert Lahr, famous for his role as the Cowardly Lion in the original Wizard of Oz, co-starring next to Judy Garland. Since its first day as a home, it has welcomed Hollywood luminaries ever since. Experience remarkable California living in the Beverly Hills -private but convenient to so many destinations.
