Before & After: c.1914 L.A. Mansion Originally Designed by Hunt and Burns Transformed in Complete Renovation, Reduced to $8.9M
601 South Windsor Boulevard, Los Angeles, California, United States, 90005
Update March 2018: Reduced to $8,988,000! A stately home originally designed by esteemed architects Hunt and Burns in c.1914 for banking executive Milton Getz has recently been reduced following a substantial renovation. The historic property, in all its original glory, hit the market in late 2014 for $4,900,000 before selling in January 2015 for $4,300,000. Following the sale, Bowery Design Group completely reimagined the interior spaces including painting all of the original woodwork, upgrading the kitchen & bathrooms and installing new lighting throughout. The change, shocking to historic home lovers, was likely an effort to attract to a broader range of buyers. The 11,826 square foot home re-listed in May 2017 for $11,695,000 and dropped to $10,950,000 just two months later. It was reduced to $9,950,000 in October 2017 and once again in March 2018 to $8,988,000. The listing describes the new design as, “Awash in period detail, house hearkens to the ‘Roaring Twenties’ albeit with 21st Century amenities.” The listing from 2015 described it as one of Windsor Square’s finest homes constructed of materials which exude the extraordinary craftsmanship and details of Old Europe.
