Timeless charm meets modern convenience
While it may be best known for its world-class shopping and dining options, Beverly Hills is also home to some of the most expensive and beautiful properties in the world—which means that house hunters will have no shortage of standout options when they’re looking for a new place to call home. While newly constructed spec mansions continue to pop up around the 90210 on a regular basis, there is something equally charming about a residence with a long and storied history. Tucked behind private gates on a prime plot of land in Beverly Hills, 902 N. Rexford Dr.
is an ideal choice for prospective buyers looking for a historic home. Built in 1924, the two-story treasure strikes the right balance between timeless charm and modern convenience.
A large motor court leads to the 9,824-square-foot home, which is equipped with seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms, as well as a three-car garage. A brick-and-stone exterior sets the stage for the rest of the home, which feels both stately and sophisticated. Vaulted ceilings, polished hardwood floors, and crown moldings speak to the home’s past, while large glass windows offer views of the mature hedges and well-manicured lawn beyond.
Designed with gourmands in mind, the sizable kitchen includes state-of-the-art appliances and a large center island. Residents can choose between eating in a formal dining room and a separate dining area that opens to the outdoors. Large enough to entertain a crowd, the wood-paneled great room includes a fireplace and multiple doors that open to the backyard. Residents can also opt to watch a movie in the indoor theater.
Envisioned as a sumptuous sanctuary, the master bedroom suite includes his-and-hers marble bathrooms, a fireplace, and walk-in closets. Three additional en suite bedrooms are located upstairs, making them perfect for older children or friends coming into town for a weekend visit. A 1,000-square-foot bonus room can be personalized to match the owner’s needs (think a yoga studio, an in-law’s apartment, or an art studio).
Designed to soak up California’s sunny weather, the interiors flow freely into a generous backyard. Residents and guests can gather in the private green space to enjoy an alfresco dinner, go for a dip in the sparkling pool, or unwind in the hot tub. Afterwards, they can roast marshmallows for s’mores or drink wine by the outdoor fireplace, which is positioned on a trellis-covered patio. For residents who want to work out, they can head to the outdoor tennis court or opt for a workout session in the private indoor gym.
The regal residence is currently on the market for $14.5 million. If you’re interested in touring the home, contact Rochelle Maize
