Timeless Elegance Meets Whimsical Charm in this  $6M Storybook Castle  in Los Angeles

by Jenny Schafer

In an enclave of tree-lined streets in the upscale neighborhood of Brookside in Los Angeles sits a storybook castle known as Chateau Lemoine.

And it’s now looking for a new owner, one that can appreciate its timeless elegance and whimsical architecture. 

Recently listed for $5,999,999, the 'crown jewel' of Brookside offers  5 bedrooms, 6 baths, and interiors that seem plucked right out of the pages of an interior design magazine. 

Extensively remodeled, the 4,508-square-foot home has a dramatic living room with vaulted ceilings, a minstrel balcony and carved stone fireplace.

It also has a striking exhibition kitchen with carved stone hood surround and pro-style appliances.

Each and every nook of this stately California home maximizes comfort without sacrificing on style. 

But despite its many attributes, it's the architecture that steals the show.  Built in 1926, Chateau Lemoine is an exceptional example of storybook architecture.

Think Edward Scissorhands meets Hansel and Gretal – a Hollywood take on medieval and European architecture.
