PREMIERE OPEN HOUSE TODAY 11A-2P: “TACO TUESDAY” FEATURING AUTHENTIC TACOS FROM ONE OF L.A.’S HOTTEST STREET VENDORS. COME BY AND SAY HI…
This newly-minted 2015 renovation of a 1959 mid-century modern home offers its about-to-be owner the best of both worlds: All of todayâ€™s most desirable features and the open, airy floor plan style of living that was highly-prized in the 1950â€™s and 60â€™s.
All of the residenceâ€™s systems are new; HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roof, pool systems, hard-scape, landscape, doors, windows, fixtures, surfaces, and appliances.
BONUS ALERT: In addition to its state-of-the-art bells and whistles, this house is located in the Roscomare Road Elementary School District, which is rated a perfect â€œ10â€ by Zillow and has been designated as one of their â€œBest Schools in Los Angeles.â€ No need for private K-5 education at this location!
Up on a quiet hill, surrounded by other significant mid-century architecture, 15414 Longbow Drive is South-of-the-Boulevard living at its most modern. It is close to everything (Getty, Skirball, shopping, markets, dining, entertainment), but is also where mountain and city lights view twinkle in the distance.
Enter through a custom 48â€ Wenge wood front door with a frosted glass panel. Guests will buzz an intercom from here and show up on camera prior to admittance. An open foyer awaits, providing a landing spot from which to take in the mid-century-inspired indoor-outdoor floor plan and way of living.
Hand-selected flooring (wide plank â€œGrey Ghostâ€-colored real oak hardwood floors and Spanish-made porcelain tile) bounces ample ambient light which streams-in through pocketing walls of glass and large-scale paneled windows. Greeneryâ€”hedges, lawn, and mature treesâ€”are â€œright thereâ€ from inside the house.
The residenceâ€™s living area is the perfect place for â€œformalâ€ cocktails (rather than floating on a lounge in the pool with a cup holder!) or for watching Netflix on a 65â€ flat panel television. Instant ambiance is achieved with the flick of a switch by turning on the gas flame fireplace. Dimmable recessed lighting and zone-controlled speakers set the mood overhead.
The homeâ€™s dining area is currently set for eight people, but can expand (or contract) as needed. A custom-made (FOR this home) light fixture provides couture lighting. The answer to â€œWhere can I buy that?â€ isâ€¦â€œYou canâ€™t!â€
Straddling these two integral public spaces is a three panel sliding glass door that pockets inside the homeâ€™s walls. Mostly seen in higher-price ranges, these doors exponentially expand the homeâ€™s living, dining, and entertaining space by incorporating a large outdoor patio into this part of the house. Hedged for privacy, this area can be for play (adults OR children), dining al fresco on a warm August evening, or sipping coffee on a cool summer morn.
In classic modern style the homeâ€™s floor plan flows with living to dining, dining to kitchen, and kitchen to family room. The houseâ€™s gleaming never-been-used kitchen features stainless-steel appliances (including a three-speed suspended vent hood with LED lighting), CaesarStone counters, custom made-in-USA cabinetry, and a large island. The view from the kitchen of the homeâ€™s public spaces is panoramic; see whatâ€™s going on in the living room, dining area, family room, and outside in the pool.
The houseâ€™s family area is a great flex space right off of the kitchen. This room is designed to adapt to a future home ownerâ€™s requirements of use. Currently set for an area to hang and chat with the at-home chef, this room could be used as additional dining, home office area, play room, or, if you require more than the living roomâ€™s 65 inches, add another TV and call it a media area.
Another feature found primarily in higher price bands is a â€œwow factorâ€ master suite. The kings and/or queens of this castle will experience hotel suite living at its finest. Tucked away for privacy, the masterâ€™s bedroom is spacious enough for a CA KING, ample end tables, and a seating area (or additional furniture). HDMI and CAT 5 wiring are in all the homeâ€™s bedrooms, so prepare to watch your shows from the bed wall. And if thatâ€™s not your style, gaze out of the bedroomâ€™s glass slider at your sparkling pool and spa.
The masterâ€™s spa-like bathroom has a free-standing tub, a step-in rain shower, dual sinks, Grohe fixtures, and commode room.
Two additional guest rooms share a bathroom. There is also a powder right-off of the homeâ€™s entrance. A laundry closet (inside and large enough for side-by-side machines) and two-car garage bring additional functionality to the home.
Quintessential California living is, of course, done by a pool. This homeâ€™s iconic kidney-shaped pool is big enough for â€œwater eventsâ€ and intimate enough for a couple of lounges floating side-by-side in the mid-day sun. A large elevated spa waterfalls into the pool.
Mutiple areas around the corner lot are landscaped and â€œusableâ€ for pets, children (swing set, anyone?), or as adult hang-outs.
Itâ€™s rare to find a home that has it all, but here it isâ€¦ready and waiting to be called â€œmineâ€!
