With land scarce in most wealthy L.A. neighborhoods, that isn’t the case in Beverly Park. Lot sizes come in acres rather than square feet and the most expensive home is sprawled across 10 acres. Encompassing 28,660 square feet, Villa Firenze houses 13 bedrooms, 17 full baths and eight half baths. Outstanding features include huge windows - some two-story, large Old World-style fireplaces and surrounds, coffered ceilings and wide-arched walk-throughs. The exquisitely landscaped motor court is surrounded by exotic 40-foot Canary Island palm trees, a central landscaped fountain, and has parking for up to 30 cars. Opening to a grand foyer, the area beyond contains 20,000 square feet of formal entertaining space. The grounds contain a two-story guest house, huge pool pavilion with pool house, and a tennis court. There is a jogging/walking trail around the perimeter of the property. Grassy lawns, water features, rose gardens and other gardens and multiple verandas for outdoor entertaining assure activities for everyone.
