Actor John Stamos sold his Spanish-style in the BHPO neighborhood this month. Stamos initially listed the property in the spring of 2019, and was looking for $6.75 million for it. In May of this year, the ask had fallen to $4.5 million; ultimately, it was an offer of $4.2 million that won the home.
The home dates to the 1920s; it was designed by noted Los Angeles-area architect George Washington Smith. Stamos picked up the property in 2005.
As it stands, the home is as urbane as it is warm. The kitchen features custom cabinetry in dark blue, an effective contrast with the warmth of the antiqued plank hardwood floors below, the butcher-block island cap, and the tongue-in-groove ceiling tray that surrounds the skylight up above; a dayroom awaits quietly on the opposite wall. The living room boasts a cathedral ceiling in raw or lightly stained wood, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace accent wall in stacked stone; it opens via French doors to the outdoor living area on two sides.
The 3,500 square-foot home contains four bedrooms and four baths. One of the bathrooms has been designed in a particularly affecting style, with a stone-walled shower and a copper patina washbasin installed on a period-style cabinet.
The property exterior features a covered porch living and dining area with a grill and pizza oven, as well as lawns, gardens, a free form pool with a raised spa, and a guest cottage that was, at the time of the sale, set up as a music studio.
