If you have Brad Pitt's number handy, he'd probably appreciate a jingle about this. Pitt is said to admire Batchelder tiles -- and this listing is loaded with them.A hilltop vintage Spanish villa in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles with 800 Batchelder tiles has just come on the market for $1,899,000. It is owned by French artist Sylvain Copon, who has a studio in downtown L.A..
The house, built in 1939, is about 2,650 square feet and has four bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. It sits on 1.6 acres and has a mature olive orchard. There are panoramic views from every room. The home, which is gated, features hand-hewed wood beams, bronze window screens, chair rails and moldings, plank doors and tongue-and-groove oak floors. There is a fireplace, plus several water features and an octagonal breakfast room. Charm, charm, charm.Ernest A. Batchelder was one of the country's premier tile makers and personified the Arts & Crafts movement. His studio was in Pasadena; today, his tiles -- although not rare -- add value to a home and are greatly sought after.
Copon's works are shown in Europe and North America.
Magnus Hellberg and Alexander Firempong, both of Sotheby's International Realty in Brentwood, have the listing.
