Home of the Week

Old World Studio City

September 28, 2003|Ruth Ryon | Times Staff Writer

It's not a castle in the air, but it has the appearance of a castle, high on a hill with views of the mountains and Studio City.

The home was built in 1995 by its current owners. They spent nearly six years working on it. Now that their children are growing up and moving out, the nine-bedroom and 13-bathroom house is too big for the couple.

About this house: The San Fernando Valley home exudes luxury, from its hand-painted ceilings and imported crystal chandeliers to its inlaid stone floors. The house has an indoor racquetball court and a ballroom with a kitchen.

Asking price: $6.7 million

Size: The 11,488-square-foot house is on a 22,459-square-foot lot.

Features: A guesthouse with two bedrooms, a gym, a wine cellar, six fireplaces, a 10-car garage, a bar, a basement, a library/study and a sound studio. Outside, there is a pool and a hot tub.

Where: Studio City

Listing agent: Florence Mattar, Coldwell Banker-Beverly Hills, (310) 274-9688
