Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

947 North Martel Avenue in West Hollywood


Built in 1938 by famed modernist architect William Kesling for Academy Award winner Wallace Beery, this Art Deco masterpiece is one of the finest examples of streamline moderne in Los Angeles.

Incorporating elements of aviation and nautical detailing, its striking horizontal lines and rounded edges create an architecture treasure.

Meticulously restored, this 3-bedroom, 2-bath home features an updated kitchen, light-filled living room with high ceilings, fireplace, and walls of glass.

Designed to experience the indoor/outdoor Los Angeles weather, the home seamlessly wraps around lush gardens with a striking koi pond, exotic plantings, and magnificent tile deco fountain. The large 7,000 square foot lot is zoned LAR3, which allows for further development.

This is a great opportunity to own a piece of Los Angeles architectural history.
