This is an extraordinary opportunity to renovate and update a classic Little Holmby estate on an expansive flat lot. The Patterson house, a traditional Monterey revival designed by noted architect H. Roy Kelley, boasts all the hallmarks of his classic style of well-proportioned rooms, hardwood floors, crown moldings, arched doorways and copious amounts of natural light. A very stately home set back from the street, one steps into a formal entry way with sweeping stairway to the upstairs before you and step-down formal living to the left with original peg and groove floors, built ins around the windows and a generous fire place. To the right of the entry, along the main hallway, is a spacious formal dining room again with original peg and groove flooring, crown moldings, chair rails and inviting bay window, a cozy paneled den with fireplace, built in book shelves and hidden "Prohibition" wet bar and at the end a gracious center island kitchen with eat-in breakfast area. Also included on the ground floor is a powder room, ample laundry room and private maids and bath. Upstairs are four family bedrooms and three baths including sizeable primary suite with fireplace, combined dressing/closet area and full bath. The back of the house opens to a sweeping, verdant yard with covered brick lined concrete patio, grassy play area, fountain and large motor court. Located just across the street from Holmby Park, this true diamond in the rough is just minutes from Westfield entertainment center in Century City, tony Beverly Hills shops/restaurants, bustling Westwood Village/UCLA and in the highly desirable Warner Avenue school district.
