Majestically sited on a 33,000+sf lot on Riviera's Amalfi rim, this authentic John Byers Early California Hacienda offers sweeping views across the canyons to the mountains and the sea. Set back from the street, the gated and elevated setting affords a world of privacy. The beautiful lawn surrounds the pool and several outdoor pavilions. The house itself, lovingly maintained in all its vintage glory, is virtually unchanged from the time it was built in 1933. Perfectly proportioned two story entry, gorgeous living room with oversized fireplace, vintage pub, period fixtures and tile, large multi-room master wing, separate two room guest/staff suite, motor court and much more. The prior owner, Eddie Albert, movie and television celebrity, lived here for a generation. Currently the personal residence of noted landscape designer Jay Griffith, this estate defines glamorous Old Hollywood and cannot be duplicated. Once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a piece of Los Angeles history.
