Located at 3550 Stewart Avenue in the gated community of Entrada Estates, this Walter De Garmo designed villa has just closed for $2,600,000 or $444.00/square foot. It was on the market for just 45 days, and closed 7% off of its list price (below the historical average in the Grove of 10%). Built in 1923, the home had many of the original details including wood beam ceilings, a courtyard with fountains, sunroof, library and wine cellar. This 5,845 square foot home was situated on a 24,000 square foot lot, offered 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and an updated kitchen with a Wolf gas stove, SubZero & Miele appliances. 3550 Stewart Avenue was listed by Saddy Delgado of One Sotheby’s.
The home was last on the market back in 2005, when it sold for $1,800,000.
