The Grande Dame of Eagle Rock! This historic and architecturally significant property was originally built in 1924. 2403 Hill Dr is well known throughout schools of architecture for being one of the finest examples of a Spanish Colonial Revival home. This magnificent Eagle Rock estate is one of several masterpieces built by renowned builder/architect Godfrey Edwards, of Edwards Wildey and Dixon. Sited on a private knoll above the street on more than a 25,000 sq foot lot, this estate takes full advantage of the incredible views of the hills of Eagle Rock, Mt Washington and beyond. The grounds are spectacular with a sprawling front lawn, mature palm trees, colorful bougainvillea, a large rose garden and birds of paradise. This five bedroom, five bath property is rich with original details, boasting original hardwood floors, a cozy fireplace and thoughtful, bespoke updates. There is a dramatic entrance and formal entry that leads to an enormous living room with dramatic views of the city. The remodeled kitchen with breakfast area boasts quartz countertops, custom cabinetry and is equipped with a deluxe Italian Bertazzoni double oven six burner stove and grill. The large formal dining room is perfectly placed between the kitchen and the living room. Adjacent is the sizable screened in loggia with views of rose gardens and fruit trees, perfectly perfumed for naps on a sunny day. The spacious Library has rich walnut wood paneling, views of the city, and would easily serve as an office or den. The primary suite has two rooms that are bi-level with French glass doors which open out to a cozy veranda. There are two other en suite bedrooms on the main level. A downstairs bedroom is like an apartment with its own entrance and bath. Upstairs is the belltower bedroom with arched doors that lead to a Juliette balcony with views forever and terrazzo floors. Indicative of Spanish Colonial style is a private central courtyard with a custom brick and wood arbor complete with gas and electric. Perfect for an artist or musician who wants an office or creative studio, the detached two-car garage is fully finished with original wood paneled walls and a 1/4 bath, plus a large, enclosed storage room below. This home is filled with rich history and has never been purchased on the market. The current family bought the home on a bright sunny day in 1960 when their father, James H. Duffy, knocked on the door unannounced to ask if the owners wanted to sell. Much to his surprise they did, and on a handshake the rest as they say is history! What the previous owners didn't realize was that part of the home's history was the fact that James H. Duffy's father, James D. Duffy, was the artisanal Blacksmith who created its custom ornamental wrought iron work. Don't miss out on this timeless and majestic Eagle Rock estate. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. A sophisticated forever home.
