[From Curbed LA] UCLA Lists Japanese Garden-Adjacent Carter House For $9MM


News came in January that UCLA is planning to sell off its lovely Hannah Carter Japanese Garden in Bel Air, and preservationists sprang into action, hoping to keep the property intact. Meanwhile, the supporting player in all the fuss has been the adjacent Carter House, which was donated to UCLA with the garden in 1965, but occupied by Hannah Carter (the widow of former chair of the UC Board of Regents Edward W. Carter) until 2006. Now here it is, quietly up for sale for $9 million. The five bedroom, six and a half bathroom house sits on its own .85 acres and has a library, "formal & junior dining rooms," five fireplaces, staff quarters, a guesthouse, and a pool and pavilion (plus some killer brokerbabble: "it will disarm even the most ardent traditionalist"). According to a 2009 report (pdf) from UCLA's Revenue Task Force, the house and guesthouse total about 7,300 square feet and were appraised at $9 million in 2007. A press release from last year said that the university is looking to sell the garden and house to raise $4.2 million for endowments and professorships "identified by the Carter estate to benefit UCLA's academic mission."
