Designed by famed architect Gerard Colcord in 1929, this French Tudor-style residence—once known as the “Trippet House”—is sited on a 20,877-square-foot flat swath in California’s Palisades Riviera.
Located at 13535 Lucca Drive, the historic estate—currently on the market for $8.15 million—features six bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths on top of a guesthouse, and wraps around a central courtyard showcasing a manicured lawn and picturesque rose bushes, invoking a sophisticated rural farm complex.
The charming, rustic residence—which was highlighted in a 1931 issue of Architectural Digest—underwent a revamp back in 2006, which included the addition of a sparkling pool/spa and an outdoor kitchen.
The light-filled home’s key original elements—such as its exposed wooden beams, hand-plastered walls, peg-and-groove floors, and large-scale fireplace—were also restored, while its country kitchen was granted marble counters, a Viking range, Sub Zero appliances, and a built-in desk.
Among other noteworthy details are the abode’s beautiful wall reliefs and gothic-arched doors.
