Designed by architect Sumner Spaulding, the 1935 residence was enhanced and restored under the direction of the recently deceased owner, Mr. A. Jerrold Perenchio, after he purchased the property in 1986. Mr. Perenchio engaged legendary French Designer Henri Samuel – known for his work on homes owned by the Vanderbilts, Rothchilds and Valentino – to redesign the estate. Inspired by eighteenth-century French Neoclassical design, the main residence is approximately 25,000 square feet in size with an elegant floor plan suited for entertaining on a grand scale. Features include exquisitely detailed limestone facade, a ballroom, formal salon, period-¬paneled dining room, world-¬class wine cellar, and covered parking for 40 cars. Three contiguous properties were acquired to form the current 10.3 acres. The remarkable grounds encompass a long private driveway, Wallace Neff guest house, expertly manicured gardens, a tennis court, and 75-¬foot pool with fully-equipped pool house, all set against sweeping panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean.
