The one-acre property is hitting the market for the first time in 60 years
Coming up for sale for the first time in 60 years, this secluded property in Laurel Canyon is the longtime family residence of renowned mosaic artists Hanns and Monika Scharff, whose handiwork can be seen in Disneyworld’s Cinderella Castle, Los Angeles City Hall, and the USC campus.
Located at 8519 Crescent Drive in the Wonderland Park tract, the 1940s home contains six bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,981 square feet of living space. Its features include vaulted and beamed ceilings, hardwood and tile floors, picture windows, French doors, two fireplaces, built-in shelving, and, not too surprisingly, extensive mosaic work.
Included in the sale are eight parcels of land, totaling over an acre, and an owned solar panel system. There’s also parking for approximately 10 cars. The property is listed with Lorena Costino and Alexis Boris Waterman of Compass at an asking price of $3.3 million.
