Located in the hills above the Sunset Strip with dazzling views of the city, this holiday home in Los Angeles embodies the evocative mid-century glamour and architectural pedigree that sets the period apart.
Designed by legendary architect Richard Neutra, with restorations and an additional level added by Marmol Radziner, the home is an impeccable example of the period.
Laid out on three levels, the home is refined and elegant with the kitchen, living room and a bedroom on the entry level and the master, secondary bedroom and family area located on the mid-level. The recently added third level, with an additional kitchen, bathroom and guest bedroom opens out to the fabulous pool and gardens. Tasteful furniture combining mid-century with contemporary, pieces and dark wood floors complement the light-filled space throughout.
Populated with a carefully curated selection of one-of-a-kind pieces by mid-century luminaries Vladimir Kagan, Paul McCobb, TH Robsjohn-Gibbings, and Milo Baughman, in addition to original art by LA artists, the home is a showcase of period style.
There are four luxurious en suite bedrooms: the Fireplace Room, the Deck Room, and the Original Master all have some of the best views in the house, while the Pool Room includes its own kitchen and bath, and a luxurious mix of city and garden views.
The private grounds are flat and grassy with a saltwater pool and lounge areas overlooking the iconic LA skyline. A rare opportunity to experience the work of Neutra nestled among the famous hills of Hollywood.
Concierge, staff and housekeeping provided with optional private chef, car and driver, spa and massage services available. Stocked with staples, fresh flowers, bottled water. Wifi throughout, satellite cable and AppleTV with DVD player and movie library, audio system with music library, landline telephone, kitchen and bath amenities including robes, luxury linens, laundry facilities, private parking.
A half-mile up into the hills, it’s the perfect distance for great views of – but not to hear too much of – Sunset Blvd and West Hollywood, the heart of nightlife, design, great restaurants and shopping in Los Angeles. It’s a five to ten minutes drive from Nobu, the Ivy, the Chateau, Beverly Hills Hotel, Sunset Tower, Pacific Design Center, and Rodeo Drive. The neighborhood is adjacent to and ideally situated for access to the rest of the best of LA. Further east is the resurrected and thriving downtown district and a half hour west are the coastal area beaches of Santa Monica and Venice with Malibu and the Santa Monica mountains for the best of west coast recreation.
