Maurice Bernard in the Hollywood Hills, Estate of the Day
The LA Times article says that the couple decided to make a few alterations to the Hollywood Hills home and nearly ended up rebuilding the whole thing. The four-bedroom Mediterranean was built in 1956 but has been given a very modern redo that includes a great room with pitched ceilings, a stacked stone fireplace and slate floors leading to an open kitchen. The four-bedroom home includes a lower level master suite with large his/her walk-in closets, sitting areas and French doors that open to the private yard and views. The Benards like to entertain and also built a covered patio entertainment area with an outdoor kitchen and a flatscreen television but there is no pool. The home is listed at $1.55 million.
