Fryman Canyon – Storybook Manor
Built in 1937, this original Briarcliff Manor Estate is better known as “Winterbrook.” Drive through a celebrity-filled enclave, behind secure gates, on to a private one (~1) acre, secluded compound on its own promontory amidst a forest of mature trees. Designed by renowned architect, Arthur Munson, this 4 bedroom/ 4.5 baths rustic, old-world, English Country Estate was once the home of famed composer, Elmer Bernstein. Off a 2-story foyer, the formal living room warmly welcomes you with beamed ceilings, rich peg/groove hardwood floors, large fireplace and a library alcove. Continue to a sizable, wet bar and huge informal family room/great room which lead out to the vast backyard, which boasts an oversized pool/spa and great entertaining space. Upstairs you will find three spacious bedrooms; all en-suite. Light floods into the Master Bedroom which is adorned with a cozy fireplace, dual baths, and huge walk-in closets. Panoramic Views of Wilacre Park, Hollywood Hills, and Mt. Baldy can be captured from both the home and from the mint, championship-sized tennis court. The grand, motor court allows parking for 15 cars or more. Move in as is, or bring your imagination and modernize and/or expand this glorious estate. Minutes from major studios, private schools (Buckley, Harvard-Westlake, Campbell Hall), hip restaurants, and chic boutiques. Shown only to qualified clients.
