Historic Holmby Hills property, designed by world-renowned architect Wallace Neff has been listed on sale for $75 million. Grand Classic Colonial estate with timeless elegance now being sold off by members of the Singleton family. Henry Singleton, who died in 1999, founded electronics firm Teledyne, and is also responsible for Richard Neutra’s Singleton House on Mulholland (which Vidal Sassoon’s wife sold to French businessman Francois Pinault earlier this year).
Magnificent gated property at 384 Delfern Drive, Los Angeles spreads on the ultra-private, lushly-landscaped grounds. It features 10 expansive bedrooms and 12.5 baths in 15,520 square feet. One of the largest private estates available situated on 3 parcels totaling over 7 acres. Every detail, from the walnut parquet to the white marble, from the Versailles-inspired oval hallway to the coffered ceilings, Neff envisioned, and created, a residence of lavish materials and gracious comforts. The property also boasts rolling lawns, tennis court, pool, massive motor court and an attached four car garage.
Wallace Neff has designed this Holmby Hills estate back in 1973. That was one of his last works. He is the Old Hollywood architect most famous for Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks’s great estate Pickfair, in Beverly Hills, as well as the King Gillette Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains and the Singer Mansion in Glendora, plus dozens of others.
This stunning property has been listed on sale back in 2008 with the price of $85 million, but it couldn’t find the buyer. Maybe this time, it’ll have more luck.
