Once-in-a-generation opportunity to own a pristine and expansive property situated on almost two-thirds of an acre in the heart of Sherman Oaks. Mature plantings, intimate gardens, manicured lawns and an idyllic pool and patio terrace grace one of the largest and flattest parcels in all of Sherman Oaks. On the market for the first time in forty years, don't miss your chance to make this exceptional "Forever Home" yours for decades to come! Enter through the main gate down the flagstone path to the generous four bedroom and four bathroom main house. The large privacy hedge surrounding Valley Vista allows you to be transported to a tranquil and serene cottage garden encircling the home. Upon entry, a spacious formal living room and large formal dining room are bathed with ample light and serene views of the front garden. The first floor of the main home has a large kitchen and dine-in breakfast nook, informal den, screened porch, laundry, guest suite, two bathrooms, and a massive bonus room and office with separate exterior entrances. The kitchen offers access to a substantial unfinished basement with abundant storage and/or additional opportunities for expansion. On the second floor you will find three bedrooms, including a large primary suite that has a private office space and a bathroom with a luxurious soaking tub and walk-in shower. Both the primary suite and the parallel upstairs bedroom have large decks off the rooms that provide the perfect escape for a morning cup of coffee as you look out onto your majestic backyard. Experience the pinnacle of Southern California living in the sweeping, immaculate back yard, pool and patio terrace. Through the screened porch and off the patio is the gated pool area, surrounded by hedges and raised planting beds, giving it the feel of your own private oasis. To the right of the pool, and down a winding path through lush foliage you will find a child's dream treehouse built into a nearly century-old avocado tree. Further down the path you'll pass a multitude of mature trees, including several bountiful fruit trees, leading to a large grass area perfect for entertaining on a grand scale. At the rear of the property is a detached guest cottage, complete with full kitchen and living area. The guest quarters are adjacent to an additional, unfinished garage storage area or workspace. Other amenities include a covered carport, chef's range and built-in appliances, skylights throughout, convenient accessibility to the Westside, and a significant seismic retrofit and upgrade in 1994/1995. This exceptional property is truly not to be missed.
