Oh, boy. Another fantastic mid-century listing hits the market in the Hollywood Hills. This time it’s the Hurly Residence by Greta Magnusson-Grossman. And this is the first time this home has been on the market in the 55 years since it was built.

 The provenance of this home is incontrovertible thanks to the wonderful series of ‘then and now’ photos that are provided with the listing.

 The home features 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, and 2,684 square feet of living space marked by elegance at every turn, such as this stunning travertine fireplace with floating hearth that runs the length of the wall.

 From this early photo of the same room, we can tell that it’s virtually unchanged today.

Magnusson-Grossman was not only a hotshot architect during the height of the mid-century movement, but she was also an accomplished designer of furniture. Last year I blogged about another home of hers on the market in Bel Air. (You can read that here.) That home is still on the market. And I’m still crossing my fingers that a preservation-minded buyer steps up with an offer on that listing.

 The interior spaces open up graciously and extend out to multiple outdoor living/entertaining spaces thanks to the walls of glass used throughout the home.

 The home’s siting provides outstanding views of the canyon and city lights, and simultaneously affords a great degree of privacy.

 Looking up at it from below, especially in this vintage photo without the mature foliage, you can’t help but love the lines of its timeless design.
