Built for B.Y. Taft in 1927 by architect A.C. Zimmerman, Taft was one of the most notable real estate developers in Hollywood. He subdivided over half of the area now known as Sunset Square. This private and gated Tudor Revival has been meticulously curated with unparalleled quality and style for the most discerning buyer. Published in House Beautiful in 1929, the residence captures a timeless aesthetic with exquisite craftsmanship and character-rich details including smooth troweled stucco, wood beams, lintels, steel casement windows, original hardware, wide plank pegged hardwood floors, shutters and French doors that seamlessly unite the tranquil outdoor spaces with the public rooms. Recently renovated by interior designer Louise Voyazis, the home has a certain enchanted elegance that is a tribute to the spirit of old Hollywood glamour blended with modern amenities including whimsical designer wallpaper, custom window treatments, elegant lighting fixtures and brilliant use of color. The expansive chef’s kitchen is adorned with quartz countertops, Viking appliances, farmhouse sink and a breakfast bar. The light-drenched breakfast room features a built-in banquette and overlooks the majestic backyard oasis. A gracious family room/dining room adjoins the timeless living room with an oversized fireplace and an abundance of windows. This exceptional home is an architectural treasure in one of Los Angeles’ most coveted HPOZ neighborhoods. Conveniently located – a stone’s throw from Sunset Blvd boutiques, markets, restaurants and hiking. “The Fairfax House” is currently being used as a successful permitted Airbnb rental at $900/night.
