Beautiful, and Poised to Become Stunning

Beautiful, and Poised to Become Stunning

This listing represents an exceptional opportunity for the right buyer.  It’s a gorgeous mid-century with great lines, in excellent condition, on a good size lot, and in a fantastic location.  And while it’s had some significant (and quite chic) updating done already, there is room for some work yet to be done.  So for a person that would love to own a sweet mid-century home within walking distance to Sunset Plaza, yet be able to put finishing touches on it that truly makes it their own, this is the place.

Multi-Appeal on Multiview

Multi-Appeal on Multiview

Mid-century flair in the Hollywood Hills straight out of 1952. And it’s under $1,000,000. Not too shabby. There isn’t a whole lot in the hills to choose from at this price point, so you might want to swing by in your sportster, with Serge Gainsbourg blaring, pull into the carpport, and check this place out. This 3-bedroom, 2-bath home has an open floor plan typical of the modern movement in the 50’s. Evoking the style of the day, polished concrete and walnut hardwood floors are throughout the home.

Altschuler/Greenberg Residence: Sleek and Stylish

Altschuler/Greenberg Residence: Sleek and Stylish

A not-so-new listing, but still worthy of mention for anyone that may have missed it early on, is the Altschuler/Greenberg House by Bernard Zimmerman, FAIA, in Sherman Oaks. This one has been on the market for 154 days now, but it has dropped $500K in that time. The listing says the sellers are motivated, so if you’re looking for a great architectural home in the valley, this may be the ticket for you.

Warshawsky Residence in the Hollywood HIlls

Warshawsky Residence in the Hollywood HIlls

Last week in my post about the Sunbow House on Solar Drive, I mentioned that it was right next door to the Warshawsky Residence by Volker Traub, which was sold earlier this year for a song ($795K). Well the Warshawsky Residence has since been updated and is back on the market.

1950 Mid-Century by Greta Magnusson Grossman

1950 Mid-Century by Greta Magnusson Grossman

Although her legacy may not be as widely known today as some of her contemporaries, Greta Magnusson Grossman made significant contributions to residential architecture and the Southern California design movement of the 50’s and 60’s. And then there is also her distinctive work in industrial and interior design, which, unless you’ve been sleeping through the retro revival, you’ve undoubtedly seen.

Val Powelson’s 1960 “Sunbow House”

Val Powelson’s 1960 “Sunbow House”

There is a little string of chic mid-century homes along Solar Drive, the short spur at the top of Nichols Canyon. In January, the Warshawsky Residency (1961) by Volker Traub was sold for $890,000. Although that needed quite a bit of updating, it was still a terrific price. Now, right next door, is the “Sunbow House”, by Val Powelson. This home has a lot of “cool” factor going for it, not the least of which is the “butterfly roof” design.

Style, Location, Style, Lot Size, Style…

Style, Location, Style, Lot Size, Style…

That’s what the Bergman Residence in the lower part of the hills above the Sunset Strip has going for it. An exemplary post and beam home built in 1955, this place is sweet. As you walk in, your view goes right out through the glass wall to into the backyard overlooking the Sunset Strip and beyond. And the best thing is that the strip is within a short stumbling distance. So, after wining and dining and enjoying all that the area has to offer, you can be back at your cool digs on the quiet cul-de-sac within a few minutes by foot.

Stahl House (Case Study House #22) – Pierre Koenig, 1960

Stahl House (Case Study House #22) – Pierre Koenig, 1960

Perhaps the most widely recognized mid-century home in Los Angeles is the Stahl House by Los Angeles architect Pierre Koenig. Perched on a nearly vertical precipice in the Hollywood Hills, at the time of its construction the site was considered by many architects to be completely unsuitable for building on.
