DESCRIPTION

The Sparks-McLaren House; Arthur Kelly, A.I.A., architect; 1930. Rarely does one of the finest homes in Laughlin Park come onto the market, as here. This grand Mediterranean estate was built for an extended family of world travelers by the esteemed architect of the “Playboy Mansion” and other notable public and private architectural works of Los Angeles’s between-the-Wars golden era. Sited on a cul-de-sac at the highest point in celebrity-favored, gated Laughlin Park, the home enjoys wrap-around city, hills and Griffith Park views. All rooms are impressively-scaled. The floor plan is flawless. The original, elegant details are intact thanks to just two family owners over the past 90 years. Not on the market since 1970, the home has always been carefully maintained. 4 bedroom suites on the upper floor; guest/maid’s/chauffeur’s quarters and service rooms on the lower floor with outside entrance; pool; sunroom/den with Palladian windows on three sides plus fireplace; 3-car garage with direct entrance; rathskeller. Unforgettable.
