Artful Mid-Century in the Hollywood Hills

Artful Mid-Century in the Hollywood Hills

A home’s merits are often, and rightfully, attributed to the architect that designed it. But there are also homes whose wonder can be attributed to those that inhabited them. I don’t know if I’ve ever come across a home that made better use of its space, both indoors and out, than this one and does so in a manner that is practical, interesting, and artful.

Brilliant Mid-Century Remodel in Upper Nichols Canyon

Back in September to 2012 I blogged about a midcentury fixer in The Colony neighborhood of Upper Nichols Canyon in the Hollywood Hills and described it as a diamond in the rough, anticipating that a developer would scoop it up and transform it into something special.

A Mod-ish Spanish in the Beachwood Canyon

A Mod-ish Spanish in the Beachwood Canyon

Built in 1925, this Spanish style home in Beachwood Canyon features all the great elements that are true to its heritage, such as coved ceilings, wrought iron, terra cotta tiles and beautiful terraces. But what I really love is that as soon as you walk in, it exudes a snappy, modern vibe that is open and bright with a great flow and is eminently livable. It’s the kind of space that it just feels good to be in. Oh, and by the way, it used to be the home of Jim Morrison. Yeah.

Richard Neutra – Linn House in the Hollywood Hills

Richard Neutra – Linn House in the Hollywood Hills

Simple lines, simply beautiful. That’s the essence of what you’ll find in the Linn Residence by Richard Neutra in the Hollywood Hills. Neutra fans may recall that the home was sold just last year as a fixer. Now it’s back on the market and I’m happy to report that the buyer did a superb job restoring it and, thankfully, maintained the home’s original character in the process.
