This mid-century modern post-and-beam house sits at the top of a hill in the Los Angeles district of Eagle Rock, with mountain and city views from all rooms. From the pool and spa to the south is Mount Washington, all the way to Catalina Island. The living room and master feature walls of glass overlooking Eagle Rock and the San Gabriel mountains. It’s a perfect LA perch, with great design credentials.
This is a property for vintage and architecture enthusiasts, with restored original finishes and a great historical feel. Though the kitchen has modern appliances, the design and amenities of the home feel like you’ve stepped back into the 1960s. There’s a Thermador oven and stove, LG fridge with filtered water dispenser and even a dishwasher. Enjoy your morning espresso or French press in the cosy breakfast nook or front patio right off the kitchen.
The design philosophy of the home was to restore when possible and to replace, when needed, with higher-end finishes that would have been available when the house was built.
All-new flooring has been installed, with oak hardwood throughout the house and poured terrazzo in the bathrooms, which also feature all-original tile and formica countertops.
The large private pool has been replastered and retiled for a smooth and fresh feel, and the deck furniture is vintage Homecrest. The natural gas BBQ is ready to go, the spa takes less than an hour to heat up – perfect for soaking in while enjoying the sunset over Los Angeles.
Decor includes lighting from Bitossi to Tom Dixon, all controlled through wall switches, a comfy Room and Board sofa, and loungy Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin chairs.
This is a great retro villa for rent in Los Angeles, but with all the right updates.
