Crowning what many consider the most coveted block of the most coveted street on the Westside, the radiant hacienda in Holmby Hills—former home to Frank Sinatra and obtainable for the first time in fifty years—commands some 2.3 magical acres of sublime privacy and seclusion. Steeped in prestige and generation, the historic haven remains an extraordinary exemplar of a true California hacienda. Elegant spaces punctuated by stone walls, tiled loggias, gleaming hardwood floors, vaulted beamed ceilings, five fireplaces, French doors, and exquisite original detail capture the heart. From both the captivating palm-laden front entrance (top right) and the endless lawns (above), the hacienda authentically articulates its romantic origins. Two view-filled paneled libraries (one shown left) richly resonate with the classic patina of lustrous wood paneling and cabinetry chosen to instill a spirit of congenial warmth. A cherished highlight and favorite setting of the house, the formal dining room (top) holds an album of memories, of entertaining family and friends against a backdrop of sunlit lawns by day and intimate candlelight by night. The junior dining room echoes the charm on a smaller scale. Beyond beckon other beloved settings: a radiant family room (the original screening room), a glass-wrapped garden room, and an executive office. Four alluring bedrooms and a generous guest apartment draw from the same luscious palette. A double staff wing and chauffeur’s quarters are also thoughtfully incorporated. Southern California’s sun-dappled beauty comes fully to life when you are sitting on the flower-bedecked patio gazing out at the natural serenity of the halcyon Holmby Hills setting (above). On its distant rolling lawns a classic pool pavilion outfitted with double cabanas rekindles a scene straight out of one of Sinatra’s movies. But as well-bred and enchanting as all the scenes on the property are, perhaps it is when you are relaxing beside the shimmering swimming pool, enjoying a forever-blue sky overhead and the soft seduction of breathtaking lawns and birdsong, that you best appreciate both the intoxicating beauty and the fabled history of this evocative estate. It is here, especially, that the lyrical brilliance of Frank Sinatra lives on.
