On the market for the first time in 18 years, this “birdhouse” style home in the coveted Hidden Woods neighborhood of Sherman Oaks has been lovingly reconfigured while maintaining many of the original characteristics typical of these prized gems. The East Coast foyer welcomes you toward an enlarged classic farmhouse-style kitchen and entertainment-oriented dining area. Just beyond lies an inviting living room that retains the charming integrity of Mellenthin, featuring a stone fireplace, built-in shelving, and vaulted ceiling. The ground floor has a family/media room, five bedrooms and two bathrooms, in two separate wings. The second floor master features a luxurious en-suite bathroom, dressing room, walk-in closet, and sunlit study. French doors open to a spacious backyard beautifully landscaped with a built-in barbeque and cedar hot tub/deck. The property includes zoned HVAC units, an ample gated driveway with a 3 car garage, and is wired for sound, internet and security.
