Aaroe Estates Director Craig Strong lists $8 million Toluca Lake estate

1938 Tudor revival by Paul Williams has Hollywood history

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Craig Strong, director of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of John Aaroe Group, has listed a Paul Williams lakefront estate in Toluca Lake for $8 million.

Craig Strong of Aaroe Estates lists Paul Williams 1938 Tudor revival estate in Toluca Lake for $8 million.

Like many of Williams' residences, this 1938 Tudor revival has a celebrity-studded history. His homes captivated the entertainment elite starting in the late 1920s and have come to signify glamorous Southern California to the world. Today, the appearance of a Williams home on the market is rare.

The estate was built for American screenwriter Gladys Lehman, one of the founders of both the Screenwriters Guild and the Motion Picture Relief Fund. It was featured in Architectural Digest twice, in 1937 and again in 1982 when it was owned by actor Henry Winkler. It also appears in Paul R. Williams: Classic Hollywood Style, a book by the architect's granddaughter, Karen E. Hudson (Rizzoli, 2012). It is one of Hudson's favorites among her grandfather's homes.

The estate reflects Williams' consummate command of historic architecture throughout, with leaded windows, dark wood flooring, intricate molding, custom wall inlays and leather details. Among its regal spaces are a formal entry, a majestic paneled library with beamed ceiling, a wine cellar, and a dramatic coffered-ceilinged office with a wraparound view of the lake and pool area. The sleekly modern kitchen supports entertaining on any scale.

A curving staircase, a Williams signature, leads to the second-story master suite, featuring a private balcony and a raised seating area with fireplace. A fountain and outdoor fireplace add to the enchanting ambience of the expansive covered brick patio. Highlights on the grounds include a gazebo, a canopied private area with built-in seating nook and fireplace, and a private dock.

"It's a special honor to represent an estate with such a superb pedigree," said Strong. "Williams' renowned mastery of historic architectural styles is reflected in every line — it's a magnificent interpretation of Tudor charm and elegance."

"This stunning listing is especially well-timed, since we're opening our seventh office in Toluca Lake this spring," said the firm's founder and CEO John Aaroe. "Craig Strong, who transacted more business than any other Aaroe agent in the San Fernando Valley last year, will move his base of operations to this location. We're excited to become a part of this wonderful community."
