The Hawk House, 1939, Harwell Hamilton Harris, architect. This rare and significant offering is a striking example of H.H. Harris at his early simple best.
Harris believed that the architect worked from the inside out, and here he arranged compositions of box-like masses juxtaposed in surprising ways.
Walls of glass and an almost Japanese simplicity define the public rooms with banks of one-lite French doors, transforming the house into a modernist pavilion.
On the lower floor, there are two bright and well-proportioned bedrooms, and a generous bathroom.
The outdoor terraces extend the living spaces into nature itself, and there is a wonderful entertaining and dining area adjacent to the kitchen.
Iconic views of the reservoir, Lautner’s “Silvertop,” the Griffith Observatory, and Hollywood Sign – all in a prime Silver Lake location.
