What do Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Howard Hughes, Sharon Tate and the Beverly Hills Hotel have in common with this home? They all share works of world-renowned and celebrated architect, Paul R. Williams. The first licensed African-American architect west of the Mississippi, Williams was a trailblazing pioneer in architectural history. Due to the rarity of this beautiful villa, many of its historically unique attributes have been meticulously preserved, making it feel like you are walking into a piece of architectural history designed for upscale living. This private, gated villa is located in the heart of Los Feliz on over half an acre, consisting of 2 main structures (the primary home and a spacious guesthouse or entertainment space). Entering the main house through a symphony of colorful custom Talavera tile, a breathtaking foyer leads you to a spacious great room overflowing with natural light. The exposed coffered ceilings are strikingly hand-painted with Spanish Colonial inspired art and coats of arms. A towering set of French doors delivers you to the pool deck and guesthouse grounds with a luscious lawn and spacious entertainment space. The other set of French doors teleport you into a secluded, intimate, and central courtyard with an authentic wood-fired Argentine parrilla. The courtyard's stone clad staircase leads you to a drape lined terrace that overlooks the large private backyard and courtyard. Upon reentering the home there is a spacious butler’s pantry adjacent to the kitchen as well as a service area just outside of the breakfast and dining areas. Ascending upon the stairs, you are guided by an authentic hammered handrail, one of the many wrought-iron details Williams expertly designed throughout the home. The subterranean level features a wood laced lounge and speakeasy style bar accompanied by a service and storage area. The guest house, located above the 4-car-garage, offers sophisticated living quarters lined by a corridor of triple set French doors allowing natural light to pour through the entertainment space and bar. At 4731 Los Feliz Boulevard, Williams captures the epitome of elegance, striking a perfect balance between world class entertainment and resort-style living.
