Over a year ago three homes hit the market in the area for over $20,000,000. 2405 Glendower Avenue, along with legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Ennis House just down the street, and Cecil B. DeMille’s former estate. Only the Cecil B. DeMille estate, which was purchased by actress Angelina Jolie, sold near asking. Even so, Ennis House’s sale earlier this year for $18 million dollars made it officially the most expensive Wright-designed home ever sold and 2405 Glendower Avenue is certainly poised to join the $10,000,000+ club.

The home is situated on a large half-acre lot just below the Griffith Observatory. The stylish English Tudor Revival property was designed in 1926 by Harold S. Johnson, mostly known as the architect of Pasadena’s Trinity Lutheran Church and Metropolitan High School in Downtown. The home was built during the Roaring 1920s in Los Angeles when magnificent homes were being built in Griffith Park and nearby Hollywoodland to house movieland’s growing roster of silent screen stars.

For decades the property has been the site of storied parties for hundreds of guests and is primed for more decades of lavish indoor/outdoor entertaining. From the magnificent double-height chandelier entry with parquet floors and wraparound mezzanine to the gracious public rooms detailed with glossy woodwork including coffered or beamed ceilings, leaded glass, magnificent built-ins, elaborate moldings, Tudor arch doorways, and multiple fireplaces with intricately hand-carved mantels, the home is sure to dazzle and impress with its many singular architectural details.

The home has six bedrooms each with their own en suite bath, including an extraordinarily spacious master suite that occupies nearly half of the home’s second level. The master has its own fireplace, walk-in closets, and breathtaking vistas.

The formal dining room is a masterclass in design, it’s of the 1920s period but its beauty and craftsmanship is endlessly enduring. The dining room opens to balconies, verandas, and entertaining decks.

There’s also a cozy breakfast room that’s clad in sunlight. The perfect spot for your family’s morning rituals.

The chef’s kitchen includes two – yes, two – nine burner stoves, making the kitchen ideal for the catering of large dinner parties.

While the listing is light on photos of the private bedroom spaces and the gorgeous meandering and lush gardens, the home also has a screening room, fitness gym, wine cellar, secret passageways, recording studio, music room, expansive storage space, and a large guest house with a private entrance.

Much of the home must be seen to be believed including the panoramic city, treetop, and ocean views from the estate’s tranquil patios.

Fun fact: The exterior for Donna Martin’s house from the first season of Beverly Hills, 90210 was 2405 Glendower Avenue.

Along with the French formal garden, the gated estate’s grounds contain a scalloped swimming pool framed by citrus trees and city views.

Truly a masterpiece, the luminous mansion offers exceptional privacy, luxurious living, and sophisticated indoor/outdoor entertaining. If you have always wanted to know what this incredible home looked like behind the walls, now is your chance.
