Live Like A Star At 1141 Maroney Lane, $15.9MAuthor:Candace Abbott
You don’t have to go far to find luxury in LA. From the decked out beachfront properties to the modernist hillside hideaways, you can find magnificent design almost anywhere. One of the latest palatial properties is , and it’s a real looker.
As if the location weren’t enough to wow a prospective buyer, the grounds are down-right stunning. Roll up to a gated, one-and-a-half acre estate that has a rich history and a private spa.
The 8,100 square foot home was originally built in 1938 by the Hollywood starlet, Virginia Bruce and her then husband director and screenwriter, J. Walter Ruben. What the couple created was a glorious haven tucked away and marked by natural beauties and glamorous details. And although the place has been completely remodeled, it still maintains some of its original charms such as an orchard, peaceful waterfalls, and a meandering stream that makes its way through rocks and shrubs with a lush landscape around and above.
Inside, the home has been updated to ooze opulence with Calcutta gold marble countertops and the finest, state-of-the-art kitchen appliances. The ideal eating and entertaining space, the kitchen is as warm as it is inviting.
But the invitational feel runs strong throughout as the home is aptly designed for hosting guests with a billiard room and guest apartment as well as a British-style pub and secret staircase. Common rooms mix modern with Old Hollywood, including a sunroom that feels like a glass box situated on the middle of the garden. The retro open feel mixes with sleek textures, glitzy lighting, and modern furnishing.
Meanwhile, the master suite offers a retreat with oversized dressing rooms, two to be exact and two baths, including an Old Hollywood-style soaking tub, fireplace, and a private balcony that veers down to a koi pond.
The sprawling property with its rounded driveway, walnut wood entryway, and sprialing staircase, rela pool, private spa, decadently designed bedrooms, and sitting rooms, has a $15,900,000 asking price, which is nothing in comparison to the luxury, location, and story that comes with it. It’s LA after all. Live like a star.
