Across the street from LA's most heralded hotel, the legendary Chateau Marmont, and once the longtime home of renowned furniture and landscape architect Cleo Baldon (credited with popularizing the "lap pool"), this 3-bedroom, 1926 Spanish Revival home exudes character and charm and maintains numerous authentic period details such as in the octagonal solarium with its vaulted and wood-beamed ceiling; the exposed wood truss ceiling living room with carved corbels and wood burning fireplace; vintage quarter sawn oak and brick flooring; and period tile work and wrought iron. In the mid 1960s, Baldon infused the property with her own sensibility by designing and installing the built-in bookcases, library ladder and other details evocative of her iconic furniture designs and fabricated by her factory, Terra. Baldon designed and added the conservatory above the garage (the new primary suite?), the sparkling lap pool, built-in benches, fountain, pond, pergola, and the stonework courtyard and walkways encircling the home. The current owners have updated the electrical, plumbing, heating & air conditioning systems and the roof. Includes a 2-car garage and off-street parking for another 2 cars. Homes proximate to the Chateau have been known to benefit by room service from, and access to, the pool, restaurant, and bar at the Chateau -- the best club in town you can't otherwise join. Ready to move in today or take it to the next level.
