    David Cooley Sells His Hancock Park Home for $6,786,400

    David Cooley, the founder and owner of The Abbey Food & Bar and The Chapel Weho, sold his home located in L.A.’s historic Hancock Park neighborhood for $6,786,400. He purchased the brick structure Rossmore House designed by architect Henry F Withey for $1.9 million in 2001. His asking price was $7,695,000.

    Alison Martino of Vintage Los Angeles was invited to Cooleys home and granted a tour of the space by Cooley himself, which can be seen in the link below:

    The Rossmore House was built in 1923 according to listing sites. It is described by real estate agent Rochelle Maize of Nourmand & Associates as… “A seamless blend of old-world charm and modern elegance, this remarkable 1923 English home sits on an expansive 18,750 sq ft lot, 5500 sq ft of living space within the prestigious Hancock Park HPOZ. Verdant privacy hedges surround this gated estate. Enchanting gardens and park-like grounds surround a semi-circular driveway leading to a grand porte-cochere. High-end finishes at every turn, from a refined color palette and wainscoting to the gleaming tile and hardwood flooring cascading underfoot.

    Natural light floods into the stately living room which opens to an intimate sunroom leading to a romantic courtyard. Glass doors that let the outside in set the mood as you host intimate dinners in the adjacent dining room. Chef’s kitchen, equipped with top-of-the-line appliances will guarantee an exceptional cooking experience. Designer cabinetry, gleaming countertops, and an oversized island under gorgeous pendant lights complete this remarkable space.

    A striking staircase takes you to the upper level where you’ll find three personal retreats. Luxury and comfort shape every corner of the three ensuite bedrooms, one of which has an oversized walk-in closet. Vaulted, beamed ceilings soar over your primary suite, highlighted alongside an opulent 5-piece ensuite with dual vanities and a frameless glass enclosure with a rainfall shower and clawfoot tub.

    Additionally, a versatile den can be utilized as a home office. Visitors will love the accommodations provided by the detached guesthouse. The lower floor is designed as a speakeasy with a wet bar for shaking up cocktails to enjoy in the fireplace-warmed outdoor living room. A bedroom and full bath await on the upper level.

    Escape to your own peaceful paradise, handsomely designed by Chad Waterhouse designs, with beautiful landscaping surrounding the saltwater pool. An outdoor kitchen with a built-in BBQ makes weekend gatherings a breeze while a tequila tasting room adds some spice to your day as you relax by the pool…”

    Dirt reports that the property was formerly occupied by model-turned-actress Katherine MacDonald — known as the “American Beauty” of silent films — and it was also a short-term outpost of “I Love Lucy” star Vivian Vance.

    The selling of the Rossmore House marks an end of an era for Cooley who hosted many fundraisers at the estate. With the recent listing of The Abbey Food and Bar and the Chapel at The Abbey, all signs point to the nightlife restaurateur retiring and possibly leaving Los Angeles.

    David Cooley also owns home in Palm Springs and a midcentury ranch-style house overlooking Malibu’s Las Tunas Beach that he purchased from actress Emma Stone last summer for $4.4 million.

    I hope this is all just part a next stage of life move. I can only imagine what a house like that costs to maintain.

    Congrats to David Cooley on the sale of his home.Mr. Cooley is in his 60s ,so I think he wants out of the bar business.After 30 some years,he deserves it.He had a vision and it is was a success.

    He is not going to be homeless,as he has a nice place in the north part of Palm Springs that is very nice.

    Congrats to Richie Rich? The same guy who told his go go dancers “Talk to the customers on your own time” followed by “you are all getting a pay cut!” They went on struck and he came to his senses.

    He sold his biz to an outside firm and then had to buy it back and took a huge loss. Sorry to disappoint you “KEVIN.”
