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 today’s most desirable features and the open, airy floor plan style of living that was highly-prized in the 1950’s and 60’s.

All of the residence’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 “10” by Zillow and has been designated as one of their “Best Schools in Los Angeles.” 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 48” 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 “Grey Ghost”-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. Greenery—hedges, lawn, and mature trees—are “right there” from inside the house.

The residence’s living area is the perfect place for “formal” cocktails (rather than floating on a lounge in the pool with a cup holder!) or for watching Netflix on a 65” 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 home’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 “Where can I buy that?” is…“You can’t!”

Straddling these two integral public spaces is a three panel sliding glass door that pockets inside the home’s walls. Mostly seen in higher-price ranges, these doors exponentially expand the home’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 home’s floor plan flows with living to dining, dining to kitchen, and kitchen to family room. The house’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 home’s public spaces is panoramic; see what’s going on in the living room, dining area, family room, and outside in the pool.

The house’s family area is a great flex space right off of the kitchen. This room is designed to adapt to a future home owner’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 room’s 65 inches, add another TV and call it a media area.

Another feature found primarily in higher price bands is a “wow factor” master suite. The kings and/or queens of this castle will experience hotel suite living at its finest. Tucked away for privacy, the master’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 home’s bedrooms, so prepare to watch your shows from the bed wall. And if that’s not your style, gaze out of the bedroom’s glass slider at your sparkling pool and spa.

The master’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 home’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 home’s iconic kidney-shaped pool is big enough for “water events” 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 “usable” for pets, children (swing set, anyone?), or as adult hang-outs.

It’s rare to find a home that has it all, but here it is…ready and waiting to be called “mine”!
