“The Prettiest Home in Highland Park”
September 11th, 2013 | by The Update
“People often tell me that this is one of the prettiest homes in Highland Park,” says Joan Eleazer, top producing agent with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, who is representing the iconic Mediterranean property at 3821 Beverly Drive. “When you drive by, the home just looks so welcoming and beautiful.”
Designed by esteemed architect Larry Boerder, the home is a study in perfect proportions—starting with its placement on a ½-acre+ lot that, at 225 ft. deep, allows plenty of room for pool, outdoor living and a substantial lawn.
This 10,0000 square foot estate, incorporates a thoughtful floor plan in which rooms flow seamlessly—many featuring pretty pocket doors with glass panes that allow for versatility and livability. The home even has a comfortable downstairs guest suite complete with a private patio overlooking the rear grounds.
The heart of the home, the kitchen and morning room, are located off the family room and each provides a wonderful living and entertaining space. The kitchen has newer stainless appliances, including a Wolf range, SubZero refrigerator and freezer, dual dishwashers, center island, marble countertops, and a newly installed architectural window that lets in abundant light. The adjacent breakfast room has a fireplace and provides a cozy area for gathering.
On the second level, there are four bedrooms, including a master suite with Gracie wall coverings, tall windows, and an adjacent sitting room with a cozy fireplace and beautiful views of the rear grounds.
Outside, the covered porch off the family and breakfast rooms has a welcoming fireplace and plenty of room for entertaining, and mature landscaping and manicured grounds create a sense of privacy in this elegant oasis. The three car garage allows entry from the rear or front of the property. Above the garage, there is a large quarters area, comprised of two spacious apartments with full baths.
