One of the oldest homes in Los Angeles’s tony Pacific Palisades neighborhood is selling for the first time in nearly 60 years.?

The Spanish Colonial-revival mansion, packed with its original Moorish-style interior details, has lorded over a corner lot on Corsica Drive for nearly a century. The historic five-bedroom house and two-bedroom guest house, a later addition, are expected to hit the market next week for $9.888 million.

Constructed in 1928, the home is about as old as it gets in this exclusive stretch of Westside Los Angeles, which has few surviving residential or commercial buildings from that decade, according to the local historical society. It was built the same year as the famed Thelma Todd Sidewalk Cafe and an iconic residence known as Villa Aurora, two other rare Spanish Colonial landmarks in the Palisades, according to historic records.

The seller, an octogenarian whose family has owned the Corsica Drive property since the 1950s, has carefully maintained many of the home’s original elements, said Michelle Schwartz, who’s listing it alongside Corey Kessler, both of The Agency.

Such details hit you from the front entrance, which still bears its original moorish tile, a geometric design that also climbs up a dramatic curved staircase. The tiles have sustained nearly 100 years of use without even “a hairline crack,” Ms. Schwartz said.

The tiles are also a century old.

“There’s really something to be said for a home that can withstand this much time and retain its authenticity,” she added. Almost everything in the entryway dates to the 1920s, including the wrought-iron stair railing and antique stained glass windows, which the owners have complemented with a Tiffany chandelier.

“You wouldn’t even want to put an entry table there because it’s so gorgeous,” she said.

A telephone nook, another bit of 1920s nostalgia, sits just beyond the foyer, in a corridor that leads to one of multiple living rooms.

The home bears many of the architectural charms decorators today love to mimic in contemporary homes, including dramatic exposed ceiling beams in the living rooms, old school lath and plaster walls and arched doorways throughout. One such archway off the foyer leads to a quirky octagonal dining room.

The next owners will surely put their own touch on the home, whose more eccentric details might not be for everyone. You won’t find slab marble, for instance, in this kitchen, where the countertops are covered in classic blue-and-yellow Spanish tiles. Same goes for the main bedroom suite, where the bathroom is clad floor-to-ceiling in a green dove pattern that might just be so retro it’s cool.

“If you hold on to something long enough it comes back,” Ms. Schwartz said.

The next owner might decide to embark on some bigger updates to the property, which at the moment doesn’t have a pool. And a two-bedroom Spanish-style guest house, which was added by a previous owner, “could use a little love,” she added. It could function as a guest house or as accommodation for a live-in nanny or housekeeper, she said.
