This Spanish Colonial estate was built in 1928 and named Belvedere. Per the Merriam-Webster dictionary, belvedere is the ideal term for a building with a view. It derives from two Italian words, bel, which means "beautiful," and vedere, which means "view." Belvedere is perched majestically on over one acre with a panoramic view that spans from Catalina Island to Palos Verdes. The grounds are magnificent with perfectly landscaped walkways, 8 fountains, an arbor covered in wisteria, pergola, outdoor kitchen and multiple entertaining areas. The courtyard includes a wood burning fireplace, fountain and ample space for entertaining. In 1991, the property was completely rehabbed including new plumbing, electric and structural upgrades, just to name a few. The highest quality materials and finishes are evident throughout with mahogany wood floors, imported tile from France, a La Cornue range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and pewter countertops. In the past year, new HVAC systems and ducting were added and the primary bathroom was just remodeled. The primary suite, which is nearly 1,000 sf, includes two separate balconies with panoramic views, a new marble steam shower, jetted tub and quartzite counters. A historical estate like this one is truly timeless and a rare and special opportunity.
