Gerard Colcord-Designed Holmby Hills Home Hits the Market for $25 Million
Built on 1.2 acres the home offers a sprawling outdoor space that includes a putting green, a pool, private spa and several patios.
A Holmby Hills mansion built on more than an acre of land and designed by famed architect Gerard Colcord has just hit the market for $25 million.
The nine-thousand-square-foot home is found at 323 Mapleton Drive in the neighborhood known as the Platinum Triangle, which has been the setting for a number of record sales and listings in recent months. Set behind gates and up a long driveway the single-story home has an A-framed shingled roof. Inside the five-bedroom, seven-bath home, visitors will find vaulted ceilings, wood floors complimented by hand-carved wood details and several large wood-burning fireplaces. There is a family room that connects to a former bomb bunker that has been converted into a wine cellar. There is a gym and a large master suite with its own fireplace.
The house is suffused with natural light provided by the floor-to-ceiling windows, and French doors that lead to a sprawling outdoor space that includes a putting green, a pool, private spa and several patios.
Colcord, who was known as the “Hollywood society architect,” has designed hundreds of residential estates in Los Angeles that have attracted a range of entertainment-related persons including Nicolas Cage, Reese Witherspoon, Bob Newhart, Dean Martin and Harrison Ford. Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel recently purchased a Colcord-designed home in Brentwood for $12 million.
The Platinum Triangle is where ‘Spelling Manor’ is currently listed for $200 million and the Playboy Mansion, which recently sold to investor and businessman Daren Metropoulos for $100 million.
The listing agent on 323 Mapleton Drive is Aaron Kirman of the John Aaroe Group.
