Studio City Home Once Owned By Zooey Deschanel & Mark Ruffalo
ADDRESS: 3295 Bennett Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90068
This captivating, gated compound is a treasured sanctuary that’s been passed between Hollywood celebs with good reason. The home was designed in 1933 by noted architect Ralph S. Loring—whose period-revival style homes and apartment complexes can be found sprinkled throughout Hollywood, the Fairfax District, and Mid-Wilshire. The primary residence, just shy of 3,000 sq ft, shows off Loring’s vision, as the home is quite unique for the period – every room opens to the outdoors and there is storage space galore. Not included in the sq ft, is a detached guest house with ¾ bath, a recording studio, a play house/office, outdoor kitchen and a gated garden offer options for home, work and play.
Formal dining room featuring metal fret work built-ins; a high wood clad tray ceiling and sharing six sets of French doors with the extensive living room. Between an archway and down a few steps is the formal living room with an even higher, cathedral ceiling with detailed cross beams and an oversized fireplace mantel to center the substantial room.
HUGE Chef’s kitchen and Butler’s Pantry/Mudroom with Guest Powder has marble countertops, Granada concrete tile floors, farmhouse sinks, brass faucets, La Cornue stove and a huge center island.
Custom mill work Banquette in the kitchen opens to a garden with several large, raised garden beds
Timeless details abound in the Master Suite – wood clad ceiling, wainscoting, classic Martinique wallpaper & dressing room with built in vanity plus multiple closets for the Fashionistas!
En suite Master Bath has enduring style but has been modernized with marble countertops, dual sinks, a deep spa tub, large tiled shower and separate water closet
Four sets of French doors overlook the front and back yards with two leading out to a pergola covered brick patio
The Second bedroom could be a second Master with its size and style – wainscoting, designer wallpaper, built in’s, vintage vanity dressing room and en suite bathroom with a separate tub, tiled shower, pedestal sink and original built ins
A long hallway with formal entrances from the front and back yards leads from the these two bedrooms to the bright Sunroom with custom milled seating, that could be used as part of the third bedroom, which is set up as a library with detailed wood walls, a brick fireplace and built in: bookshelves, seats, custom desk and cabinets.
