THE G.H. BLACK RESIDENCE Circa 1937: Original Paul R. Williams traditional impeccably restored and expanded into an approximately 5,374 sq. ft. gated home and street-to-street lot with rear entry on La Fontaine. This stone faced collectors home, originally commissioned for the first Mayor of Beverly Hills, is perched majestically behind a gated motorcourt with original period Elm and Oak trees. The fabulous signature foyer looks straight out to the meticulous and enormous park-like grounds, English gardens and expansive brick entertaining deck complete which is complete with built-in barbecue, spectacular swimmer’s pool, spa and fountains. Gus Duffy, A.I.A., skillfully orchestrated the renovation and expansion that artfully connects the first floor gourmet entertainer’s kitchen to family room and guest wing with second story master suite with separate den and the best master bath and his and her closets in town. Walk out the master and relax on the hotel style decks and enjoy first class luxury in your robe. Two additional suites with period details and separate private study completes the second story. Second downstairs master overlooking lush gardens and custom built wine tasting room. Large separate gym at La Fontaine entry. Reminiscent of The Beverly Hills Hotel this magnificent trophy residence has entertained presidents, business titans and entertainment and sports industry legends. An extraordinary once in a lifetime offering of a 1930’s classic Paul R. Williams masterpiece.
