Description

Don't let the location fool you - the house is set back from the street, completely walled and gated providing privacy and seclusion in the heart of the city. Built for B.Y. Taft in 1927 by architect A.C. Zimmerman, Taft was one of the most notable real estate developers in Hollywood. Published in House Beautiful in 1929 and uniquely maintained for 95 years, the residence captures a timeless aesthetic with exquisite craftsmanship and character-rich details including smooth troweled stucco, wood beams, lintels, steel casement windows, original hardware, wide plank pegged hardwood floors, shutters and French doors that seamlessly unite the serene outdoor spaces with the public rooms. Recently renovated, the home has an enchanted elegance that is a tribute to the spirit of old Hollywood glamour blended with modern amenities. The expansive chef's kitchen is adorned with quartz countertops, Viking appliances, farmhouse sink and a breakfast bar and is adjacent to the guest suite - perfect for a home office or a family member that cannot negotiate stairs. The light-drenched breakfast room features a built-in banquette and overlooks the majestic backyard oasis. A gracious family room/dining room adjoins the timeless living room with an oversized fireplace and an abundance of windows and opens to a lovely front courtyard with fountain and mature landscaping. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and the primary featuring whimsical designer wallpaper, custom window treatments, elegant lighting fixtures and a romantic balcony with views of the hills. This exceptional home is an architectural treasure in one of Los Angeles' most coveted HPOZ neighborhoods. Conveniently located - a stone's throw from Sunset Blvd boutiques, markets, restaurants, Chateau Marmont, Larchmont Charter School and hiking in nearby Runyon Canyon. "The Fairfax House" is currently being used as a successful permitted Airbnb Plus rental at $900/night.
