Home Of The Week
13849 Weddington Street
Residing in Sherman Oaks’ Chandler Estates area, find one of the most stunning examples of Old-World style accented with modern sophistication. Built in 1992, the French Country estate exudes rustic warmth, satisfying the soul as much as the senses. Effortlessly elegant, the home’s country touches infuse incomparable welcome.
A gated entrance and brick motor court greets guests upon arrival. Stepping into the grand foyer, a rotunda floats overtop Pecan paneling, parquet flooring, and a curved staircase. Through the hallway, a living room with vaulted ceiling, leaded glass windows, and soaring stone fireplace impresses. Curved arches, soft lines, stonework, wood beams, and plaster walls play to the home’s countryside charm.
The magnificent sun-filled kitchen artfully balances state-of-the-art appliances with rural tradition. Residing adjacent to the kitchen, a breakfast room with brick fireplace that looks onto the backyard. An iron chandelier appears from a beamed rotunda for added appeal. A Pecan-paneled study with rich coffered ceiling and elevator servicing all three levels awaits around the corner. Taking the elevator to the lower level, discover a pub/game room, bathroom with sauna, wine storage, and guest suite with sitting room.
Moving outdoors, the rambling grounds are comprised of lush lawns, a classically shaped mosaic-tiled pool and spa, Koi pond, built-in barbecue station, and lanai with fireplace. A separate two-story guesthouse with lower level gym overlooks the tennis court.
Inspired by the gentle hills of rural France, the country-style estate eludes timeless style.
