Historic Studio City villa has double lot and star pedigree

Once the home of Hollywood icon Debbie Reynolds, this one-of-a-kind villa on a double lot in the hills of Studio City has been lovingly restored and updated with sensitive attention to its 1929 heritage. 3734 Reklaw Drive is exclusively offered at $2,799,000 by Aaroe Estates Directors Kevin Driscoll and Bryan Abrams.This is the ultimate entertainer’s home. From the grand foyer, guests move into the sun-drenched living room, where graceful coved ceilings and a fireplace create a welcoming ambience. In the nearby formal dining room, an arched picture window frames stunning views. The showpiece in the chef's kitchen is a custom-made stove from Diva de la Provence in France. It’s accompanied by a Traulsen refrigerator, a marble-topped island, a baking station and a butler's pantry. A maid's room/den with patio completes this level.


On the second floor are four bedrooms plus a large porch with pastoral views and private access to a guess room. The vast and very private lot is entwined with lovely pathways and a magical lantern-lit vined trellis walkway. An outdoor kitchen with pizza oven makes for easy entertaining on the romantic weathered brick patio off the pool. The 750-square-foot finished basement features a pool bath, wine cellar and storage/gym area. The home is served by high-scoring Carpenter Community Charter School.
