What follows was the original description of the property...
Located in one of the most desirable locations in the city, 718 North Alpine Drive offers a new resident the opportunity to RESTORE, EXPAND, or BUILD. The 6BR/7.5BA residence is currently a classic Tudor beauty in the heart of the Beverly Hills Flats. The main house is over 4,300 sq.ft. and other buildings include a pool house with a kitchen, a guest studio, and garages for five cars (dimensions are listed under RESIDENCE FEATURES). The home's floor and site plans are available under the FLOOR & SITE PLANS tab.
Although only a handful of owners have called 718 home since it was built in 1922, neighbors recall Vaudeville icon Gypsy Rose Lee and (separately) actor Van Johnson as residents within the home’s walls.
The stately main house sits back from tree-lined Alpine Drive and is fronted by a lush, green lawn. A unique foyer with its very own fireplace segues to the home’s public rooms. A powder room lies just off of the foyer. The living room has another fireplace (the second of four on the property), leaded-glass windows, a wall of built-in bookcases, and gleaming hardwood floors.
The dining room features a leaded-glass bay window. The beating heart of the house is its family/game room. This “ranch”-themed room has a three-sided built-in bar and enough room for lounging, screening, and game tables. The family room has a wall of glass doors that open to the home’s pool area.
The large kitchen and breakfast area is located between the dining and family rooms and also is accessible from the maid’s suite and one of the homes’ two laundry rooms. “Secret” access to the house’s California basement is also through the kitchen. Everyone loves a hidden door to a Prohibition-era hide-away!
Upstairs are two bedroom suites (including the master with walk-in closet) and two bedrooms that share a Jack’n’Jill bathroom. One of the suites also has a separate playroom/office within it (not counted as an additional bedroom).
A u-shaped complex of rooms surround the home’s sparking pool and grassy lawn. The pool house—perfect for a gym (currently a dance studio)—has a fireplace and a kitchen. Two separate pool bathrooms (one yellow tile, one green) serve pool guests. Another bedroom suite (“chauffeur’s quarters”) is also out back. One of the two garages on the property houses three (or more) cars and has another laundry room. This garage was used in the past as a location to restore Packards and Studebakers that are now housed in museums. The garage is accessible from the alley between Alpine and Foothill.
The home’s “front” garage (facing Alpine) has ample room for two cars.
This compound sits on a 15,897 sq.ft. lot, which makes ideas for expansion or other possibilities a thrilling reality. This special family home’s next generation of ownership will experience Beverly Hills living at its finest.
All of the city’s offerings are close by—as well as highly-desirable Hawthorne School (but “just far enough” away to not be a incursion on this home’s incredibly quiet solitude). The home's other school, Beverly Hills High, is a short drive away. The Beverly Hills Hotel and the park just south of it are a short jaunt on-foot or a minute by-car. Shopping, restaurants, and other highlights are detailed in the NEIGHBORHOOD tab. And don't miss the home and neighborhood video tour under the VIDEO TOUR tab.
