Powell, noted architect of Reed and Company, the 4 bedroom home was one of the first homes in California to be built fully electrical, coming to be known as “The Hollywood Electrical Home.”

When the groundbreaking home was first open to the public for tours, several Hollywood silent stars acted as docents, including actresses Pauline Garon and Kathleen Key.

The home has been beautifully restored, and featured in numerous architectural books and fashion magazines. Privacy, gated motor court entry, swimmers salt water pool, impressive views, and a separate guest/office quarters all combine to create a luxurious standout home in Hollywood.

The home was promoted as “an architectural replica” of the Petit Trianon, a small chateau on the grounds of the Palace of Versailles in France. Notice the ornate coffered ceilings.

The immaculate kitchen boasts marble counters, Viking and Subzero appliances, custom cabinetry, and a casual breakfast area.

The home’s living spaces are at once glamorous and inviting, including this brightly lit living room with its gorgeous fireplace and serene hillside views.

This exquisite spiral staircase functions as an eye-opening centerpiece of the home.

Imagine waking up each morning to the incredible views offered by these floor-to-ceiling French-style windows in the master suite.

The master suite has a skylight, dressing area, and a spacious closet.

The large, revamped bathrooms feature double sinks, soaking tubs, beautiful fixtures, and unique, elegant tile work.

Three more bedrooms, including this stunner with its built-in library, complete the home.

The gorgeous pool is surrounded by lush, tall hedges offering you, your family, friends, and guests complete privacy to enjoy the majestic grounds and saltwater pool.

The charming, romantic, and original Beaux Arts gazebo is a lovely and enchanting bonus. This is a rare opportunity to own a glamorous piece of Hollywood history in a superb Hollywood Dell location.
