World-class architect Wallace Neff’s A.L. Schoenborn residence has been authentically and meticulously restored, epitomizing Neff’s early classic Spanish colonial architecture and reflecting the heritage of early Southern California. Behind gates off a private driveway and with panoramic views of canyons and city lights of downtown and the ocean, the setting is unparalleled.
The classically-designed entryway leads to a massive living room with a two-story beam cathedral ceiling, a fireplace with original ironwork by Julius Deitzman, doors to patios, and verandas with sunshine flowing through all rooms. The stunning gourmet kitchen opens to a unique trapezoidal dining area and family room with views. The staircase with original tilework leads to four bedrooms and four bathrooms, including an incomparable master suite with a massive and luxurious, tiled master bath overlooking the city and ocean.
There’s also a guest quarters and a huge, rebuilt swimmer’s pool with a crescent shaped waterfall/spa. This magnificent home is an extremely rare offering with two exquisite original 1920’s tiled Crane baths and hardware, lighting, flooring, and rebuilt original doors.
