This mid-century (circa 1951) 3BR/2.5BA home (+ garage/studio conversion) is perched on close to 1 quarter of an acre of flat, private grounds just above Bronson Canyon. A chic, recent re-imagining of the home augmented and updated highly-desirable mid-century styling into the 21st century. The homeâ€™s bathrooms and kitchens were re-done. Banks of glass doors from most rooms open to serene, green hilltop views. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are viewed from the homeâ€™s main rooms (and master bedroom) and its outdoor environs.
The residenceâ€™s living area has pitched post-and-beam ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace. Oak floors gleam beneath. Built-ins flank the fireplace. In classic mid-century fashion, the dining area is adjacent to the living area.
The open floor plan concept continues from dining into the kitchen. There are custom Bulthap kitchen cabinets, breakfast bar, 2 sinks, a suite of high-end stainless-steel appliances (including SubZero and Viking), built-in wine chiller, variable-speed hood (with lights), porcelain tile floors, quartz counters, and skylights.
3 of the homeâ€™s master bedroom walls feature glass elements, giving the opportunity to rise with the sun and/or experience a natural twilight from a king-size bed. Oak floors line the floor and a beamed, undulating ceiling vaults above. Glass doors open to an over-sized in-ground spa (â€œspool-sizedâ€) and fire pit. Shade and privacy are provided by Zen-style plantings (mid-century styling is often accompanied by Oriental-style reference points).
The masterâ€™s bathroom showcases custom tile work and a step-in spa-style shower with a frameless glass door. A walk-in wardrobe area features a custom built-in closet system.
A guest room also has banks of windows and glass doors which also open to the spa area of the lot. Another guest room (with an additional fireplace) is currently set as a screening room.
A private bathroom services these bedrooms. A powder room (with laundry closet) adds to the homeâ€™s functionality.
Outdoors offers a multitude of ways to enjoy the Southern California lifestyle. Recline, dine, enjoy coffee on a deck that runs the length of the dining and living areas of the house. 2 steps down from the deck is a grassy lawn surrounded by mature plantings. This area is great for pets, kids, orâ€”somedayâ€”a lap pool. Another area is where the spa and fire pit (with its built-in conversation area) are located. After a work-out in the home gym (see BONUS ALERT below), take refuge in the spa, jets soothing sore muscles.
A gated entry provides security to the lot. A large carport and additional off-street parking make gatherings simple (there is also street parking in and around the area).
BONUS ALERT: A 300 sq.ft. converted 2-car garage has 2 sets of single-light French doors to the lotâ€™s flagstone patio areas. This roomâ€™s careful renovation includes pre-wire audio/visual, vaulted wood-lined ceilings, remote-controlled skylight recessed lighting, and wood and steel floors. IF a garage were needed, the garage door is still intact. A conversion back to housing cars is simple here. However, this flex spaceâ€”as it stands nowâ€”is perfect for home office, gym, writerâ€™s retreat, art studio, or additional sleeping area.
Close to all the Los Feliz and Hollywood Hills areas have to offer.
