This Gordon Kaufmann-designed house on L.A.’s Westside has deep roots in regional history.

One of the very first residential or commercial properties ever integrated in Bel-Air, the prize estate dates to the 1920 s when contracting and engineering business owner Arthur S. Bent and his better half Eliza commissioned the designer to develop their brand-new house.

At the time, the London-born Kaufmann was going far for himself producing Mediterranean Revival design structures. He would go on to deal with the Hoover Dam and the Los Angeles Times structure, to name a few landmarks.

Hardwood surfaces and an arched ceiling boost the conventional appearance of the library.

For this task he selected a stacked stone outside on the front and included a leading level of Tudor-style stucco and half-timbering on the back. These surfaces stay, although today ivy covers parts of your house. High chimneys and dormer windows extend from the deeply steeped roofing.

The premises, then and now, include a little more than an acre. Today the gardens and yard are shaded by fully grown sycamore and oak trees.

Designed for amusing on a grand scale, the interiors have actually been carefully brought back to preserve a classic, timeless atmosphere.

The lofty living-room has heavy ceiling beams and a stone fireplace.

The high-ceiling official living-room centers on a baronial sculpted stone fireplace. Wood floorings continue into the surrounding library, which includes an arched ceiling, wood paneling and integrated glass-enclosed racks.

The official dining-room has its own fireplace and opens to a seeing balcony.

The center-island cooking area mixes stainless home appliances with white cabinets. It is tiled from flooring to ceiling in a nod to kitchen areas of the 1920 s.

Chandeliers, wood floorings and a fireplace are amongst the functions of the official dining-room.

Wood stairs with vibrant tile risers lead up to the next story.

The main suite includes a fireplace, a big soaking tub bath, a dressing space and extensive closets. There are 5 more bed rooms.

The two-story guesthouse consists of a living-room, a cooking area and 2 extra bed rooms.

Stone actions at the back of your home result in the pool location.

A wrought-iron gate opens to the pool, which is surrounded by yard and lavish landscaping. A day spa sits to one side.

A vine-covered trellis shelters outdoor patio area near an outside fireplace.

Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland is the listing representative for 620 Siena Way, Los Angeles. The asking cost is United States $43 million.

Los Angeles International Airport has to do with 14 miles away.
