Described in the LA Times as “perched on a promontory like a luxury railroad car” this residence offers incredible views and privacy. Buff & Hensman, Don Hensman, F.A.I.A. 1975 design, this 1,508 square foot home is situated on a 9,200 square foot lot and is hidden from street view. The open frame design lets in copious amounts of light during the day and features both mountain views and city lights in the evening.
Two sets of folding full light doors encompass both walls of the main living room. Punctuated on one end with a fireplace and on the other end of the long narrow space with the kitchen. Each of theses rooms have access to the patios and pools and offers panoramic views.
The living room and dining room area are rhythmically separated with a beamed ceiling, reinforcing the the pull to look outwards.
The kitchen, with its lowered ceiling and built in lighting has a cozier feel while still open to the living room, it is only set apart with a low partition wall. The refrigerator is disguised with a fully paneled door almost disappearing in this very minimal kitchen.
This property offers one bedroom at the far end of the home and one and a half baths. Outside the surrounding patios are long and lean mimicking the design of the house and incorporate a mix of materials and low slung cantilevered bench.
The lap pool in the front of the home is surrounded with a tall privacy fence, mature trees and lush landscaping.
The garage has space for two cars and currently the top is used as a sun deck.
High in the Hollywood Hills yet close enough to the 101 and nearby studios this home offers privacy, light and extraordinary views.
