Located in wonderful Westwood Hills on one of the prettiest blocks of fable Sunset Boulevard is this gracious two-story, five bedroom, four-and-a-half bath Traditional on an unusually large, mostly flat lot.

The large Formal Entry welcomes you with its sweeping staircase and adjacent, there is a spacious Formal Living Room with a large fireplace as its anchor. The Living Area opens to a sun-bathed Family Room/Garden Room with a wet bar and access to the patio and backyard beyond. Also off the Entry is a handsome Library/Den done warmly with rich accents and another fireplace. Beyond the Entry is a large Formal Dining Room, fit for large gatherings and perched to afford great views of the backyard.
The Kitchen has a center island and a large, sweet-feeling Breakfast Room. A full-sized Laundry Room connects the 5th bedroom and full bath with the Kitchen. This area would make a perfect Guest or Housekeeper Quarters or Office. There is direct access to a two-car garage and to the extraordinarily expansive parking area. A formal Powder Room with the original vanity area completes the first floor.
Upstairs there are four unusually roomy bedrooms including the Master with its separate dressing area, ample closet space and private bathroom with separate shower and tub.

Particularly notable is the property's circular driveway designed for easier ingress and egress onto and from Sunset Boulevard. Further, there is provided an uncommonly large parking area in addition to the garage and driveway so when this concrete expanse is not being used for basketball games or the like, many additional cars can be easily parked on-site.
