Located in the coveted Old Las Palms Neighborhood is an incredible 2-story 1936 Spanish Colonial on an approximately one-acre corner lot. The home exemplifies the architectural style of California's Golden Age architect Wallace Neff. The five-bedroom nine-bath home is 6577 sq ft of living space with a gorgeous chef's kitchen, two primary suites, three guest suites, a theater, an exercise room, and an upstairs office with a terrace and mountain views. In 2001 a four-year loving restoration began with the main house being taken down to the studs to rewire, replumb and modernize the home, which boasts a fully integrated Crestron whole-house control system, WiFi network, and a hard-wired monitored alarm system. The exterior of the house received new stucco and a new tile roof. Upon entering the property, an extraordinary old-world brick motor court greets you, which is one of a kind and took a master craftsman more than a year to construct. Each room received careful attention in restoring the Spanish revival details of the period. Beautiful Mesquite hardwood floors run throughout the home. Native Tile artisans were commissioned to reproduce the many Malibu, Gladding Mcbean, and Moorish design tiles. The sparkling blue ceramic tile pool is salt water, with a shallow tanning bed area that is also great for small children, and a built-in spa. The furnishings, including antique Monterey furniture, Persian rugs, rare Spanish revival furnishings/fixtures, and beautiful teak outdoor
