A charming English Tudor Revival with half-timbering, exposed brickwork and two prominent chimneys has hit the market in Beverly Hills for $15,495,000. The 8,000 square foot home last sold in 2008 for close to $7,000,000 and has since been updated while preserving many details from the past. The property comes rooted in Hollywood history. Architect and builder Carl S. Arganbright designed the home for the parents of Colleen Moore, a silent film actress who helped popularize the bobbed haircut. According to Michael Locke on Flickr, architect John Wolf remodelled the home in 1953 for Gordon Oliver, actor and film producer, appearing in more than 45 films and television shows. The 0.56 acre property not only includes the charming main house but two additional guest homes beyond an elegant swimming pool. Enter into a soaring foyer with a hand-carved wood staircase flowing into the formal living room with coffered ceiling, library lined with wainscoting, a refined dining room, chef’s kitchen and a sun-filled family room that opens up to the sprawling grounds. Craftsmanship defines this romantic estate with solid woods beams, old-world plastered walls and crown molding. Journey through the enchanting English-inspired gardens with its expansive grounds, inviting pool, fountain and gravel-gardens. The spacious guest house is complete with full kitchen, living room, bedroom & 1.5 bathrooms, plus second junior guest house with kitchenette. This unique Beverly Hills property is on the market for $15,495,000 with Douglas Elliman.
