Description

With its gorgeous Spanish Revival-style architecture, resort-like grounds, and highly desirable location, this Highland Park manse is a rare gem. Completed in 1925 for mortgage and investment broker Harry Harlan and designed by Hal Thomson, the sprawling two-story residence sits on 1.5 landscaped acres and stretches more than 14,000 square feet. Fully renovated in 1985, with additional renovations in 1996, the home also includes an elevator and garage parking for five cars.

The six-bedroom estate is equally grand on the inside, beginning with the sunlit foyer. Here, soaring ceilings, sparkling marble floors, and ornate columns hint at the drama awaiting beyond the entrance. The rear of the foyer opens onto a large atrium, while a formal living room and dining room flank each side, both of which boast the original oak floors and plentiful space for entertaining. The living area’s beautiful millwork, hand-painted ceiling, and intricate fireplace add warmth to the space, and the dining area captivates with its stunning decorative ceiling. The perks continue in the spacious kitchen, which features a walk-in pantry and an adjacent wet bar and breakfast room. The kitchen also has a large island, a desk nook, Brazilian Bahía Azul granite throughout, and a coffered ceiling that adds the perfect amount of visual interest. In addition to an expansive great room with built-ins, a wet bar, and a fireplace, the first floor also houses an exercise room, a billiards room, a versatile hobby room, a cozy sitting room, and a wood-paneled library with a fireplace and ample built-ins.

Upstairs, the luxurious owner’s suite occupies a private corner of the second floor and comes complete with a fireplace, two custom walk-in closets, and a marble-floored bathroom with a marble-clad tub and separate shower. The second story also includes an office with built-ins, a craft room, a generous den, and five sizable guest bedrooms, all of which have en suite baths and walk-in closets. Outside, the sweeping estate has the feel of a private resort. In addition to an exquisite pool with a mosaic Italian tile floor and a stucco border wall featuring an eye-catching quatrefoil cutout, there is a charming gazebo with a built-in grill, as well as open and covered patios.

With its graceful interiors, elegant grounds, and copious amenities, this impressive property offers the ultimate in luxury living.
