Affectionately known as the “Mansion on Mayberry” and protected under the Mills Act, this 1927 Mediterranean Villa reigns with the supreme elegance of Italian-style decor and was recently featured as the Los Angeles Times Home of the Day. Neighboring the border of Echo Park and Silver Lake, the 2,564-square-foot residence enjoys the tranquility afforded by its large, fenced-in yard while being only moments from Sunset Junction, Mohawk Bend, as well as Griffith Park and DTLA. The property, located at 2508 Mayberry Street, is listed with Partners Trust Associate Partners Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen and is being offered at $1,895,000.
Built by Italian immigrant Innocenti Palombo to mirror a small palace from his hometown, this grand property has earned the distinction of being a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument and boasts hand-painted murals, elaborate crown moldings, Juliet balconies and Art Deco chandeliers draping from coved ceilings.
Free-flowing interior passages connect the formal living rooms and kitchen on the main level.
A central balustered staircase leads one to the upper-level where all four bedrooms are housed. Each bedroom features charming architectural details and plenty of natural light.
Joining the second floor is a sun-splashed terrace lending views of the surrounding Silver Lake neighborhood and Palm trees while overlooking the landscaped grounds below.
Fenced-in to add a considerable dose of privacy, the reimagined outdoor retreat is graced by rose bushes, fruit and citrus trees, a vegetable garden and canopied seating area. A loft-style basement comprising of a kitchen, media room, library and two garage bays extends the living space and entertaining potential of this historic property.
