NEW PRICE - A spectacular single-story Paul R. Williams-designed home is on the market for the 1st time in decades. Paul Williams was known as an architect to the stars in the ’40s and ’50s, when he designed French chateau, Regency, and Mediterranean-style mansions for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Barbara Stanwyck. Williams was the first certified African-American architect west of the Mississippi, and the first African-American member of the American Institute of Architects. Williams designed prominent buildings including the retro-futuristic elevated Theme Building at Los Angeles International Airport, the Saks Fifth Avenue on Wilshire, and the Beverly Hills Hotel. With signature features throughout this property, careful consideration has been given to preserve original details. Built with expansive San Fernando Valley views for American actor Richard Arlen, the address was 19000 Devonshire St. There are 23 sides to the home and the lot touches 9 other lots. The palatial owner’s suite includes a fireplace, sitting room, and exquisite bath. There are two additional guest suites, a Nanny/Chauffeur ensuite quarters, and a private guest house. The living room and family room are enhanced with tremendous views. A beautiful dining room with hardwood floor allows access to the rear grounds and patio. The gourmet eat-in kitchen offers granite counters, Subzero and high-performance appliances. Other features include a 4-car garage, 10 year old roof, copper plumbing, 3 A/C units, laundry room, circular driveway and wonderfully mature landscaping. This is a chance to own a one-of-a-kind home designed by a man honored in American History.
