Welcome to the glamour of yesterday’s Hollywood. Nestled in the heart of West Hollywood just a leisurely stroll away from Sunset Boulevard and some of the finest restaurants in LA spans the Flores residence, considered one of the world’s finest examples of Hollywood Regency architecture; a gracious and hidden testament to classic days gone by. Actress Loretta Young originally commissioned the home and resided here for nearly thirty years. Rock Hudson also rented part of the property for several years. Ms. Young’s glamorous touches remain throughout and this sumptuous 6,000 square foot home is truly in a class of its own. Dramatic oversize double doors with original brass hardware leading into the residence are a captivating entrypoint. These signature doors (featured in Vanity Fair) tower magnificently as you approach and set a fitting stage for the opulence that awaits inside. As you pass through, leave the modern world behind and escape into a lavish world of classic style, sweeping architectural lines and all-encompassing Old World grace.
As you enter the Flores residence, an ultra-high domed ceiling opens into airy lightness, soft music is piped in throughout the first floor, and classic elements such as the antique chandelier and an eclectic blend of playful original art take centre stage. A spiralling stairwell ascends upward and sweeping lines are highlighted by handcrafted custom moulding, tying each area seamlessly into the next. Here, each enchanting room is a treasure trove to explore. The architecture incorporates Neo-Classical elements with British Regency, French Empire and Modern design elements, building seamlessly to create a glamorous whole. Period furniture and the unexpected infusion of boldly patterned feature walls completes this eclectic blend of antique and contemporary decor. Harmonious tones of ebony, ivory, and muted cream colors lend continuity throughout and the result is a richly layered feast for the eyes. The home’s original kitchen has been preserved meticulously and features stainless steel counters throughout as well as a double range stove top and modern stainless steel appliances. There are 8 bedrooms, five of which are formal and equipped with sumptuous linens and a television and DVD player. Your opulent master bedroom features fine furniture, lavish linens and a period leather covered floor-to-ceiling headboard. The deluxe en suite restroom is appointed with antique white marble throughout. As you step outside the Flores residence, find yourself in your own private courtyards, filled with blossoming fruit trees, or a walled yard with comfortable chaise lounges and an inviting turquoise swimming pool.
