Step through the arched door and step back in time to the Great Gatsby Era of the rich and famous of 1928! The walls will hug you & welcome you to your vintage sanctuary, home, sweet home. The private 2/3 acre offers you refuge yet the location rests just a few minutes above the charming Spanish Village by the Sea with its beautiful beach, fabulous restaurants, friendly people & best climate. Step down into the grand ballroom with its giant arched window overlooking Catalina Island and be awestruck by the 11' coffered ceiling. French windows open to lavish gardens of bougainvillea, palms, eucalyptus trees and delicious gardens. The Gold Medal architect, Paul Revere Williams created every fine detail just as he fashioned for Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, and the many Stars blessed by his genius, which made him so world famous. With 17 rooms, 4 balconies, 3 patios and 360 degree views - come feel the energy & “good bones” of this masterpiece. Recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, the property is honored by the City who values it as a Landmark Resource. Experience the tremendous Pride of Ownership. Restored lovingly to its vintage character, you are welcome to make it your own, with changes (in keeping with the style of the time). Create your living legacy knowing that you are part of something historically significant. "They just don’t make them like this anymore!". Appreciate the PROPERTY TAX of just $5,050 PER YEAR which TRANSFERS WITH TITLE.
