“Villa di Serenita” – 1928. Immaculate Mediterranean/Spanish fusion, blending old world charm with modern conveniences and energy efficiency. Step back in time as you enter the front flagstone courtyard with a trickling fountain. Upon entry of the home, you will be entranced by a sensational 2-story foyer with magnesite floors and European imported chandelier and lighting fixtures. The step-down living room has a rebuilt fireplace with open beamed ceiling and charming archways. Just off the entry is a cozy library with built-in book shelves. The kitchen has been gloriously restored with marble counter tops, center island, top appliances, built-in coffee maker, wine cooler and farm sink. Off the kitchen is a laundry room, as well as a separate family room with French doors leading to the backyard. A lower guest bedroom contains an extra plush Murphy bed to maximize space when not in use. Upstairs a stunning master suite overlooks the front courtyard, reminiscent of the Italian countryside. A grandiose custom-built closet will accommodate those in need of space. The magnificent master bath features custom-made dual ‘dresser’ sinks, and a glamorous claw-foot tub framed below a fetching stained glass window and crystal chandelier. Two other bedrooms upstairs share a beautifully marble tiled bathroom and shower. The private backyard oasis awaits, as you relax in the sparkling pool and bubbling spa. Other features of the home include dual-zone A/C and heat, copper plumbing and electrical, copper gutters, tankless water heater and new windows. For those looking for green friendly homes, the house has been energy audited and features a 4.5 kw/h solar-paneled electric system, and wiring for electric cars. “Villa di Serenita” breathes a European whisper, rich with character and detail, into a vintage California neighborhood. A true Hancock Park classic, that will stand the test of time.
