The social and architectural history of the Arensberg Estate in Hollywood is unparalleled in the history of Los Angeles. Built in 1920 by William Lee Woollett (designer of the Million Dollar Theater and Rialto Theater) the house has additions by Richard Neutra, Gregory Ain, and John Lautner. The rambling Mediterranean with its modern additions once housed the greatest avant-garde art collection in the world, and served as home to Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, and Man Ray. This illustrious history forms the narrative of the new book on the Arensberg Estate just published by the Getty Institute. The five year meticulous restoration of this estate was completed in 2021 and the results are stunning. Private, gated, and surrounded by exceptionally beautiful formal gardens and mature trees, the two-story house offers light, gracious interiors with custom furniture, custom lighting indoors and out, restored oak floors, and numerous French doors from every room leading to terraces, balconies and gardens for a perfect indoor/outdoor flow.Some of the homes special features include a movie theater by Gregory Ain, an office by Richard Neutra, and a carport by John Lautner with a turntable for easy entry and exit to the estate. The home has parking for six cars at this carport, as well as a two car garage at street level. The living room, dining room, and owner's suite all have large fireplaces. Outdoor amenities include a salt water swimming pool with spa, an outdoor kitchen, jaw-dropping fountains, and a sunken garden with stone dining table which easily accommodates 12 for daytime or evening entertaining. Located within easy walking distance of Runyon Canyon and the Hollywood Walk Of Fame this historic Outpost Estates residence is romantic, enchanting, and created for a lifestyle of comfortable luxury.
