The Franklin Otis Booth Jr Hacienda, 1949.A single-story hacienda, designed, built and owned by Franklin Otis Booth Jr, philanthropist and great-grandson of Gen Harrison Gray Otis, founder of the Los Angeles Times. A Caltech engineer, while building the Hacienda, Mr Booth was also responsible for the printing of the newspaper, and later became one of the earliest and largest shareholders in Berkshire-Hathaway. Built in 1949, the Hacienda was completely renovated and restored in 2015, adding modern design and conveniences, while preserving and accentuating the structure's defining architectural features. More recently, the Booth Hacienda has been subtly refined: relandscaping the front gardens to allow for more privacy and form, brightening interior spaces with new hardwood flooring and design, and adjusting interior spaces for greater livability. An ideal penthouse alternative: for those looking to simplify their lives, while maintaining privacy, security and the ability to entertain family and friends, intimately or on a grand scale. Situated in the Oak Knoll neighborhood, a stone's throw from the Robert R Blacker House and the Langham Hotel & Spa, the unassuming walled estate was most recently a celebrity's residence, unbeknownst to the neighborhood. Given the highest category of quality rating when first assessed, the Booth Hacienda will impress even the most discerning of buyers.
