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.

 The lime green front door gives the first hint that some pizazz awaits you on the other side.

 The living room features hardwood floors and a sleek fireplace with a wood mantle and tile inlays. But its grace comes from the huge arched windows that look out to the canyon in one direction and to the patio in the other.

 I love this wonderfully functional kitchen for its size, its abundant light and views, its layout and its equipment. It features SubZero and Viking appliances, an apron sink, eat-in breakfast nook, plenty of built-in storage and a patio just beyond

 This terrace is fantastic. Protected by a lush hillside with Angel’s Trumpets, Birds of Paradise and an avocado tree, the space is magical.

 The covered area, with its arched supports adorned by hand painted Spanish tiles has an air of tradition and history. I’ve little doubt that countless parties have carried on here until the wee hours of morning.
