Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

1390 Greenmont Drive in Glendale


In 1959 Jack Taylor commissioned LA’s hottest young architect, James Langenheim, of Pereira and Luckman, to design a special home on a private parcel overlooking the Oakmont Country Club.

During this same period, Langenheim created his iconic space age design for the LAX Theme Building.

The private entry opens to a six-sided living room with rare black terrazzo flooring, original art piece wall panels, aircraft metal fireplace hood, and blown concrete ceiling.

The family room and dining room is a hexagon with high ceilings and a hidden pass through to the custom chef’s kitchen.

The large master suite does not have a square angle in it and opens out to the sculpted rear grounds.

The other two bedrooms and baths are original, as well.

In 2007, Langenheim returned to preserve his original vision with the addition of a guest unit with a hexagonal office, large guest suite, and a sauna.

Additional features include solar power, updated electrical and plumbing, 2 HVAC systems, hexagonal pool, the extra large carport with charger, and even a hidden phone booth.

Langenheim truly created an uncompromising mid-century masterpiece of hexagons and obtuse angles.
