Here is yet another fantastic listing in the The Oaks neighborhood of Los Feliz. This time, it’s an impeccable redesign of a 3 BR / 3.5 BA mid-century, tucked away on a hillside cul-de-sac that’s bounded on all sides by the expanse of Griffith Park.

 Originally built in 1957, the home was re-imagined from the studs up with a “Contemporary Balinese” flair. Once inside, you are immediately greeted by a spacious, open floor plan that includes a living room and family room divided by a concrete wall

Originally built in 1957, the home was re-imagined from the studs up with a “Contemporary Balinese” flair. Once inside, you are immediately greeted by a spacious, open floor plan that includes a living room and family room divided by a concrete wall accommodating a sleek fireplace at its corner, as well as built-in shelves and a large cut-away section that connects the two spaces.

 Both rooms have walls of glass – one surrounded by the greenery of tropical forest, the other opening to a backyard oasis. If the natural light provided by the walls of glass isn’t enough, the vaulted ceiling connecting the two rooms features skylig

Both rooms have walls of glass – one surrounded by the greenery of tropical forest, the other opening to a backyard oasis. If the natural light provided by the walls of glass isn’t enough, the vaulted ceiling connecting the two rooms features skylights on both sides.

 Every nook of the home features something interesting, such as the far wall above with its windows wedged between the shelves of the built-ins, which add color, texture and style to an already awesome room.

What I love about this home is that it presents one surprise after another. Although there are no photos here of the front, from the street, it’s a bit of a tease because the home is largely hidden behind a front yard densely filled with lush, tropical foliage. But as you climb the floating stairs leading to the front door, it’s evident that good things await you. One of the home’s unique design elements is an 800-gallon aquarium that greets you in the foyer, providing a clever and exotic form of separation from the dining room on the opposite side of it.

 It’s often the case that in a remodel done by a home’s owners over the course of several years, you’ll find a degree thoughtfulness and attention to detail that’s not encountered in a remodel that’s been done to a property that’s being flipped. This

It’s often the case that in a remodel done by a home’s owners over the course of several years, you’ll find a degree thoughtfulness and attention to detail that’s not encountered in a remodel that’s been done to a property that’s being flipped. This home is a perfect example of that. A testament to this is the fact that it was featured on the AIA tour.

 Smart home technology, combined with top-of-the-line finishes make this not just a home, but an experience.

 The gorgeous master suite features a spa-like bath and huge walk-in closet. But what I love most about it (though not pictured here) is that it opens up to the backyard and pool.

If you want to ensure your guests don’t poke around in your bathroom, give them something to look at! Maybe that was the idea behind building one end of the aquarium into the wall of this bathroom. Love it. And, no, it’s not possible to peek into the bathroom from the outside.

There’s no lawn to mow in this backyard. Rather, it’s designed for a resort style experience, featuring an artistically designed pool and spa with a wooden bridge-way to the seating area, a waterfall, and a koi pond. And remember those surprises that I mentioned? Beyond the wall of the pool is a staircase that leads up the wooded hillside to a flat area, perfectly suited for building another patio or garden. And just beyond that, outside the property’s fenceline, is the soft, grassy hillside of the park, where it feels like you’ve been suddenly transported to Napa.
