So let’s start with that accent. I mean… what is it? Thirties-era Mid-Atlantic lockjaw? Weirdly Americanized British upperclass? A completely self-invented hipster drawl? I could listen to it all day. Those flattened diphthongs! The slurry syntax! It’s almost more interesting than the house.
But on to the house. Architectural Digest describes it as “a spacious and secluded Spanish Revival four-bedroom, five-bathroom 1930s hideaway that comes with a bonus two-story guesthouse, Edenic gardens, and a pool area that is the definition of Hollywood glam.”
And yes, it’s all that, but I think you’ll be wow’ed by the yellow zebra wallpaper (EVERYWHERE! EVERYWHERE!), the Beatrix Potter wallpaper, the Prohibition-era secret bar/panic room, the gobs and gobs of modern art, and that soup can dress.
