Wake Up to Views of Your Lush and Sprawling Grounds
Located in 90210, the most famous of America's zip codes, this former home of 1940's movie star Nina Foch, is a wonderful sprawling residence and a quintessential entertainer's delight. From the moment you step through the double doored entry you are greeted by a light-filled, glass-enclosed breakfast room/conservatory with views of the truly resort-like grounds. Every social room spills out to the lushly landscaped yard, rich in its water features, floral beds, a beautiful pool and so much more.
With period details at every turn, this special home is comprised of 4 private bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms totaling 4,838 square feet. The show stopping gourmet kitchen features an exposed, vaulted wood-beamed, sky-lit ceiling that opens up to the large formal dining room with its massive mantle and fireplace. The oversized living room, which also features an impressive fireplace, is the perfect setting to host any formal gathering. Anchored by three sets of French doors, the living room opens to the beautifully manicured gardens beyond. Upstairs is a massive media room, originally built by the late Mrs. Foch as her personal acting studio, where many of her fellow thespians like John Ritter came to hone their acting skills.
Beyond the gardens that lie immediately off the living areas are more expansive grounds that are verdant, alive with fruit trees and color; they offer many choice spots from which to enjoy the raised vegetable beds and rose garden, or to simply take refuge with a drink and a good book by the outdoor fireplace while overlooking the main pool area.
Truly a classic and iconic home, built around the art of entertaining, extremely private, and tastefully updated without compromising the architecture integrity.
