Los Angeles (City), CA 90077
The finest residential offering in the United States. "Chartwell" is the ultimate trophy and a legend cherished for generations. Situated on 10.39 acres in the heart of Bel Air, the main residence was originally designed by Sumner Spaulding in 1930 with a timelessly elegant exterior of symmetrical cut limestone in the French Neoclassical style. The interiors were masterfully renovated in the late 1980s by Henri Samuel, one of the most important designers of the 20th century. Offering panoramic views from downtown to the Pacific Ocean, "Chartwell" is a rare combination of extensive grounds and powerful jetliner views. Features include a Wallace Neff designed 5-bedroom guest house, 75-foot pool with spacious pool house, tennis court, car gallery for 40 vehicles, 12,000 bottle wine cellar and precisely manicured gardens befitting a chateau in France. Discrete and world-class, an estate of this caliber has not been offered in decades. Shown only to prequalified buyers.
