This whimsical estate was constructed by architect Robert Byrd in 1951. Byrd is well known for including a circular room with extensive beams in each home he built. You may recognize the name Robert Byrd from a far less pleasant story. Byrd is also credited for building the home where Sharon Tate and 4 others were murdered in the late 1960’s by members of the “Manson Family”. That home has since been knocked down, but this Byrd home is still standing in all her mid-century glory!
Byrd’s style tends to be whimsical and cool all the same. This property is located near Bel Air’s West Gate, and sits on a massive lot in a prime location. The home is set among lush gardens and beautiful, mature landscaping.
The home feels almost like an oversized cottage tucked away in the countryside. The lot is private and gated providing you with plenty of space to spread out across the grounds and relax.
The large rooms and public spaces provide the trademark ceilings, curves and built-ins you’d expect to find in a Byrd home.
The home offers an almost storybook or fairytale type feel that’s consistently on display throughout the property. The circular theme is continued throughout the home, and there is an flow from room to room.
The exposed beams are also found in several rooms providing some stability in the clean lines. The exposed beams add charm and character while keeping the more “fantastical” elements in check.
The bathroom pictured below looks like it belongs in a castle tower with it’s brick tile countertops and stone walls. There is a practical side to all of the fantasy as well. The bathroom does provide plenty of counter space, dual vanities, and recessed lighting along with a separate stall shower and soaking tub.
Upstairs, there is a private study with lots of built ins. The property also offers a large master suite, maids quarters and more.
Outdoors, you can find a sparkling pool with waterfall, sports court, cabana, and more! The property also offers a large circular drive that can accommodate 12+ cars and a 2 car garage! This property is truly one of a kind!
