Hanock Park Heineman & Heineman Historic-Cultural Monument #1108

Historic-Cultural Monument #1108 is a glorious estate built at the height of the American Arts & Crafts movement by renowned Craftsman architect Arthur Heineman. Heineman – and his firm Heineman & Heineman – was a major force in the Arts and Crafts Movement in California. The firm is perhaps best known for their Craftsman style bungalows in Pasadena including the Parson House on East California (1909-10) and the Bowen Court on Villa Street (1910). 221 S St. Andrews Place is a prime example of the Craftsman style and ethos. The home was originally built in 1913 and has recently been beautifully renovated by one of Los Angeles’s very best modern day architects, Barbara Bestor.

The home is located on a peaceful tree-lined street in convenient St. Andrews Square, only a short stroll to all the shops and restaurants in Larchmont Village.

The residence includes a double porte-cochère for covered parking for multiple cars. The beautiful and spacious front porch is sure to delight you each time you enter the home.

Enter the warm and inviting living room which features exquisite woodwork throughout. The living room has hardwood floors, a magnificent chandelier, original details, and an inglenook fireplace.

The alcove with the fireplace has unique built-in seating and just above the mantle are a pair of elegant stained glass windows.

The lovely dining room has original built-in shelving and storage painted a deep and dark green, with modern lighting fixtures added to add an element of 2021 to the room.

The fabulous open and bright kitchen features Viking and Miele appliances, plus open shelving painted black up top, with playful pink drawers below.

The expansive kitchen is the perfect spot to entertain with its large eat-in island with marble countertops, plus a breakfast nook and easy outdoor access to the fantastic entertaining deck.

The kitchen connects to a relaxing family room with plenty of room for books and blu-ray storage.

The primary bedroom is upstairs and has wonderful views of the garden.

Designer elements are found throughout the home and seamlessly blend with the historic and timeless accents that have now been in place for over a century.

The suite has a walk-in closet with simple, no nonsense shelving.

And a supremely chic en suite bath with a floating pink vanity with polished concrete countertops and a pink and black tiled walk-in shower.

And a luxurious soaking tub with updated tiles and fixtures.

There are two more bedrooms upstairs and each shine with their own charms and quirks.

The two bedrooms share the home’s second full bath. There are two more half baths for guests downstairs.

The expansive deck is just off the kitchen making for an excellent spot to start your day with a cup of coffee or end it with a glass of wine.

The deck leads to a serene, picturesque garden professionally designed by landscape artist Campion Walker. The private backyard is a true sanctuary with gorgeous mature landscaping, multiple seating areas, and room for kids to play, or perhaps a pool to be added?

The home’s architect, Arthur S. Heineman, was also the inventor and primary architect of the world’s first motel, the Motel Inn. It was originally called the Milestone Mo-Tel and is located in San Luis Obispo, California. It opened on December 12, 1925. Although it was planned to be only the first of a chain of eighteen motor courts, Heineman was unable to register the name as a trademark, which allowed competitors to use the name, and his plans to extend the concept himself were scuttled.

Finally, a detached guest house recently designed by House of Honey is the ideal work-from-home space.

The skylights, custom shelving, stained glass, and hand painted ceiling mural of snakes create a one-of-a-kind space that is sure to inspire and enchant.
