This exquisite Spanish Colonial in Beverly Hills has undergone a comprehensive restoration and rebuild, resulting in the perfect balance of period charm and modern amenities.

The home’s lush grounds offer tall hedges, beautiful plantings, and privacy. Inside the antique front door, you’re immediately struck by the entry hall’s grand staircase and the soaring cross-trussed beams of the formal living room.

The main rooms all open to the gardens- the redesign of the home has provided a contemporary indoor/outdoor flow that makes the space more modern and bright.

Every surface offers the finest materials and hardware. The massive chef’s kitchen offers butler’s pantry, huge island, marble counters, large informal dining area and adjoining family room that opens to the pool, spa, outdoor fireplace, and the pool house.

Upstairs, the lavish master suite has a fireplace, spacious terrace, large walk-in closet and a spectacular set of dual baths.

The estate was owned by Darryl F. Zanuck and Virginia Fox Zanuck from the 1920s into the early 1940s during Hollywood’s Golden Age. It was during the ownership of the estate that Darryl Zanuck formed Twentieth Century Fox in 1935.

This vintage treasure is currently listed for $9.5 million with John Galich and Daniel Schott of Rodeo Realty.
