Onetime home of illustrious LA scion has panoramic golf course views
Set mid-fairway on LA’s storied Wilshire Country Club course, this 5,125 square foot Hancock Park residence was once owned by Alphonzo Bell Jr. – scion of the pioneering ranching, oil, and real estate development family whose name graces the community of Bel-Air. 


Bell, Jr., was influential in his own right as an eight-term US Representative from California representing LA's Westside. He was known for his landmark environmental initiatives, including his introduction of "Save the Whales" legislation in 1975; successful efforts to open San Onofre Beach to the public; and leadership role in founding the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and preserving the Channel Islands.

The two-story 1949 home, set on a tree-lined cul-de-sac at the fifteenth hole of the historic golf course, is listed at $5,750,000. It has been impeccably maintained and extensively remodeled with a sophisticated open interior plan. 



Beyond the gated courtyard entrance, a grand floating fireplace serves both living and family rooms. An expansive chef's kitchen, open to the family room, features granite counters and dual ovens and dishwashers. Nearby, a spacious breakfast room opens to a charming patio. Menus created here are complemented by selections from the home’s  custom 1,000+-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar.  There is also a formal dining room with views to the front courtyard (made even more formal by closing its pocket doors) and the backyard.


Glass walls and doors invite a seamless indoor/outdoor flow to the spacious backyard, where a striking pool/spa, sweeping lawns, a Zen garden plus rose and herb gardens create a dazzling milieu for entertaining or family gatherings. The expansive yard also includes a greenhouse, vegetable garden, free run chicken coop and fruit and citrus trees.


The luxurious downstairs master suite overlooking the pool and grounds is served by a large his and hers master bath. Several upstairs rooms in the four-bedroom, five-bath home have delightful dormer window views. 

The unparalleled location is moments from the charming Larchmont Village shopping district, close to Paramount Studios and near many of LA's best restaurants and schools.
