This Spanish Mediterranean estate boasts hybrid sensibilities, with a modern gourmet kitchen that coexists comfortably with the classic lines of the nearly century-old property.

The three-bedroom, five-bathroom home built in 1925 sits on a professionally landscaped lot measuring 15,560 square feet near Caltech and The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens. The leafy grounds include an expansive backyard, a gated area with a pool, spa, bar, full outdoor kitchen and a cabana-pool house with bifold doors and full bath.

Inside, the 3,675-square-foot residence has several rooms that harken back to a more formal time—an elegant living room, library and formal dining room. Living areas also include a family room, breakfast area and laundry room. The basement is outfitted as a media room, with a movie projector, wet bar and bath and the property’s original fireplace and such upgrades as a movie projector, wet bar and bath.

The listing is held by Carla Buigues of The Agency.
