Doris Jacobs Offers Stunning Beverly Drive Mediterranean Showplace
“Situated in prestigious Old Highland Park on ultra-exclusive Beverly Drive and within the award-winning Armstrong School District, 3516 Beverly Drive is a stunning Mediterranean showplace nestled on a gorgeous 80’ x 195’ lot with a circular drive and has fabulous drive-up appeal,” said Doris Jacobs, executive vice president and founding partner of Allie Beth Allman & Associates.
“Offered at $8,500,000, the spectacular residence was designed by architect Richard Drummond Davis and offers approximately 9,084 square feet, five bedrooms, five full and two-half baths, seven entertaining and two dining areas, six fireplaces, a wet bar, three balconies, courtyard with fountain, covered terrace with outdoor fireplace, side patio, gorgeous pool, and a three-car garage with guest apartment,” said Ms. Jacobs.
Enter through double wood-and-iron doors to an inviting outside front foyer, which overlooks views of a fabulous enclosed outdoor courtyard with stone fountain. The outside foyer leads through double iron-and-glass doors to an exquisite two-story entrance hall, which gleans with a groin-vault hand-painted ceiling trimmed with ornately carved plaster molding, a dramatic oversized crystal-and-iron chandelier, and gorgeous limestone-patterned floors, whose texture is deftly highlighted by a gorgeous stairway, with wrought iron-and-brass balusters, leading upstairs. Two gorgeous wrought iron balconies also look down to the first floor. An exquisite marble powder room, graced with faux finished walls and a stunning hand-painted trompe l'oeil, serves the area.
Capped by an ornately carved, cross-beamed ceiling, the richly paneled study showcases a marble-surrounded fireplace and abundant built-in bookcases. Light-filled French doors yield natural light on the herringbone hardwoods and open to the outdoor front entry and courtyard.
An exquisite gallery, with its hand-painted groin-vault ceiling, leads to the formal living room, which features a marble fireplace, ornately carved plaster molding, hand-scraped hardwoods and windows, with elegant taffeta silk drapery, overlooking scenic views of the front landscaped grounds. French doors also open to courtyard.
Graced by curved walls, antique Mission doors and a fabulous oversized iron chandelier, the spacious dining room also boasts art niches and dual hidden closets with oversized double doors revealing a silver closet and storage. French doors, with exquisite drapery, open to the side patio. The dining room also flows through a butler’s pantry to the kitchen.
Capped by a beamed ceiling and centered by a massive stone wood-burning fireplace wall with a raised hearth, the oversized great room also showcases hand-scraped hardwoods, richly stained built-ins, a granite-topped wet bar, and triple French doors opening to the covered terrace.

Second level of living is equally sumptuous and subtly grand. The luxurious master suite’s credentials include an oversized bedroom with a sitting area, gorgeous limestone fireplace and French doors, with elegant drapery, opening to dual iron-grilled balconies. The lavish master suite is appointed with an exotic marble vanity with His and Hers sinks, limestone floors with marble accents, a hand-carved limestone fireplace, claw foot tub, separate tumbled marble double steam shower, His and Hers toilet rooms and His and Hers huge walk-in closets. The Hers closet also includes an interior cedar closet.
