The historic Van Griffith Estate, built circa 1925, is a unique compound for those who desire abundant privacy yet still want to live in the heart of the city. Built by the son of Griffith Park benefactor, Griffith J. Griffith, this rare Los Feliz estate is set high up from Vermont Avenue and sits on nearly three quarters of an acre. A large double gate, privacy wall, and long driveway lead up to this Mediterranean compound creating a sense of a secluded sanctuary. The main residence consists of a spacious living room, formal dining room, library/family room, large eat-in kitchen, speakeasy & rooftop deck. Exquisite tile-work, rich wood and oversized windows allow for an abundance of natural light throughout the home & spectacular views of downtown, the Observatory, and Griffith Park. The home's park-like grounds are framed by giant redwood trees, towering pines, mature olive trees, and stone pathways leading to a large saltwater pool & Montecito-style guest house.
