One of the area’s most-desired developers struck gold with this 1980 architectural wonder. Modernist builder Steven Hill’s elements and style are intact on the inside and outside of this unique, loft-like residence. Soaring light-filled spaces permeate the home. A contemporary, open floor plan showcases a two-story living room, dining room, kitchen, cocktail lounge, convertible den, balconies, decks, and spectacular city lights views from almost every room.
Enter the home through a unique vestibule. To either side of this ante room are two one-car garages (direct-access parking for two cars total). Ascend a light-flooded staircase to the first level of the home, which centers around a living room with a fireplace, vaulted ceilings, walls of glass, and dynamic views. Adjacent to the living room is an intimate cocktail lounge with a built-in bar. This area could be modified and used as a screening area.
The house’s dining area also faces easterly views. High ceilings and glass brick add volume and brightness to this room. Bamboo floors accentuate the space. The custom dining table is rumored to have been crafted by Steven Hill, as well.
Hill was not afraid of angles–“right,” 45-degree, or otherwise. The home’s kitchen is an example of Hill’s fascination with intersecting lines. Plenty of cabinet space, original grey ceramic tiles (a Hill obsession), and a clerestory window complete the room.
Up a half-level are a guest bedroom, a large convertible den (which could be used as a bedroom), and an angular full bathroom lined with Hill’s favorite grey tiles.
Higher up is the home’s master suite level. A large bedroom features a fireplace, walk-in closet, and a sliding glass door that opens to a view across the city’s lights to the San Gabriel mountain range. The master suite’s oversized bathroom features a separate tub and step-in shower large enough for two. Bonus alert: Bathe or shower while taking in city lights views through a picture window! A stack laundry unit is also on this level.
Outside is a steel sky bridge that leads to a large lot with three decks. There is also a yard area past the decks that provides plenty of room for the possibility of a pool or grassy lawn. Over-the-top views abound from these outdoor areas.
This creative space is located north of Los Feliz Boulevard on a quiet, coveted cul-de-sac that features more expensive homes. Griffith Park is a few steps from the front door.
According to public records, there have only been two owners of the property; Hill himself (from 1980 to 1984) and the current trust. Are you ready to be the third owner?
