3859 FRANKLIN AVE
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lease this furnished historic and stunning 1927 Spanish Colonial Revival compound with a pool designed and built for silent screen actor Johnny Hines by celebrity architect Robert Finkelhor. Located atop the Franklin Hills in the vibrant neighborhood of Los Feliz, this 4,578 sq. foot residence has been meticulously restored and sits on a 16,586 sq. foot corner lot with park-like grounds and commanding views spanning from the Griffith Park Observatory, Hollywood Sign, Century City, and out to the Pacific Ocean. As you enter through the front door you are greeted by a dramatic two-story octagonal turret entry hall with a stenciled wood-beamed ceiling, magnesite flooring, a curved stairway, stained glass windows, and centered by a rare 1920s chandelier. Next to the entry is a coat closet/phone room with a half bath. The step-down living room is spacious and features a hand-stenciled wood open cross beam ceiling, peg and groove hardwood floors, an impressive stone mantle and fireplace, original light scones, piano, and a large picture window that floods the room with sunlight and frames the city and ocean views. Off the entry hall and through the arched doorway is a cozy media room with French doors on both sides that open to a private tiled patio with two lounge chairs and a teak table that seats six for al fresco dining. The fully equipped remodeled chief's kitchen with breakfast room boasts a Wolfe range, teak countertops, a center prep table/island, custom cabinetry, a stainless-steel refrigerator, and a farm sink with a reverse osmosis water dispenser. Off the kitchen is a mudroom with a Miele side-by-side washer and dryer and additional cabinetry. The upper level houses all three bedrooms. The primary suite is a generous-sized retreat with refinished original oak hardwood floors, an elevated wood-beamed ceiling, walls of windows, a bright sunny sunroom/office with explosive views, a walk-in closet, and a dressing room with a vanity area and additional closets and built-ins. The remodeled primary suite bath with Mission tiles offers a soaking tub, a large separate rain head shower with a seamless glass door, pedestal sink, and ample cabinetry. The two additional guest bedrooms both have French doors that open to a private view balcony, plus walk-in closets and connect to a remodeled tiled bath. The lower-level unfurnished recreation room with a beamed ceiling, poured concrete flooring, a decorative stone fireplace, a separate entrance, plus a half bath is a blank canvas to transform into a space for your needs and wants. Works well as a music room, art studio, or yoga room. The garage has direct access, with one automatic garage door opener and an equipped workout area with a treadmill. The home has multi-zoned central air and heat with HEPA filtration and the upstairs closets are ventilated. There is also a water filtration system for the entire property. Just off the main house is a freestanding guest studio (fourth bedroom) with a full bath that has been transformed into a spa room complete with a massage table and dry sauna. It is the perfect spot to relax and rejuvenate from a busy day. There is also a separate home office/study tucked away from the main residence that has built-in shelving, a large desk, and two guest chairs for in-person meetings. You will never want to go into work again. The professionally landscaped PRIVATE backyard is a magical oasis. There are multiple pathways, a rose garden, a vegetable/herb garden, citrus trees, an extensive variety of beautiful flora and fauna, a flat lawn area with a pavilion, plus a view balcony with loungers. To complete this rare offering there is a private resort-style heated saltwater pool that is large enough for lap swimming and a pool cabana/house with accordion glass doors, lounge chairs, custom cabinetry, and a half-bath plus an outdoor Viking kitchen with sink, grill, and refrigerator.
