Here is your chance to own this majestic shingled chalet-style tennis court estate, sitting on well over half an acre lot. Once the residence of actor Leslie Nielsen, the 1913 property was one of the first houses built in the flats of Beverly Hills. It was completed a year before the incorporation of the city, and a year after the opening of the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is a short stroll away.
On the main level, gleaming original hardwood floors, wide hallways and voluminous formal living and dining rooms, that are lit by long expanses of windows. A step-down family room and a sunroom, opens to a brick-paved, glass-ceiling solarium space. A cozy den with a fireplace is located just besides the family room as well. 4 large master-suites upstairs, all with spacious walk-in closets. Master suite also has an enormous view terrace, looking out to the entertainment area in the backyard. An oversized pool and a lighted tennis court complete the grounds.
The county records reflect the property to be @ 27,960 square foot lot with a massive 95 foot frontage. The house itself shows as a 5,440 square foot structure, but was added onto in the later years. In addition there is a full guest house with its own kitchen, bathroom, a fireplace and a skylight. This amazing property is fronted by a sweeping lawn, encircled by a driveway and a covered portico, accommodating six to eight cars comfortably. There is also separate detached four-car garage.
Without a doubt, this is one of the best priced property available in Beverly Hills market today!
