Lake Hollywood Estates Residence


Los Angeles, CA

SOLD

Architect Michael Maltzan's skillful redesign and upgrade of this single story 1960s Lake Hollywood Estates residence is a perfect marriage of Mid-Century design and 21st century living.

Barcume & King, Architects

The Cedric Belfrage House, 1937


Los Angeles, CA

SOLD

Architectural historians Gebhard & Winter invented a new style (Monterey Moderne) to describe the character and warmth of this classic 1930's residence by noted architects Barcume & King. As related to the current owner by Belfrage, a Hollywood writer and correspondent, he had the pick of sites when Firenze Avenue was first created. He chose a nearly 1/3 acre knoll-top lot, and was allowed to pick the address 7777. Privacy was assured with the street wrapping around the bottom of the knoll on three sides. Today, a circular pool set in a landscaped garden plays off the curving private drive leading to the attached two-car garage. The residence steps up from the parking plaza to

Richard Neutra, Architect

The J.M. Roberts Residence, 1955


West Covina, CA

SOLD

In the mid-fifties, the lifestyles afforded by Richard Neutra’s design aesthetic were not readily accepted in the Eastern San Gabriel Valley. Modernism was suspect, at least in regard to residential architecture. Even Roberts came to Neutra requesting a ranch style house. Fortunately, Neutra would not compromise his design aesthetic, and today this icon of modern design affords the new owner a rare opportunity to experience a space for living that has come to define the ideal “California Lifestyle”. Recently restored over a 2 year period, the residence is sited in a parklike 3.5 acre setting among massive eucalyptus, pine and oak trees. Features include: maids quarters, cork and

Donald Olsen, Architect

The Olsen House, 1954


Berkeley, CA

SOLD

First offering: the Donald and Helen Olsen House, 1954 - the architect’s own home! Listed on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places, and a City of Berkeley Historic Landmark, the Olson House presents a striking counterpoint to the more familiar Bay Area Modern Style. Built seemingly as a demonstration project, the Harvard educated architect applied his “high art” International Style training, as championed by Walter Gropius, to create his own “machine for living in a garden.” The success of this endeavor is attested to by the families’ lifelong tenure, and the building’s service to lives immersed in creating a better world through art, architecture, and

This is Bob Graf's own home, mid-century modern perfection restored and improved to energy efficient 21st century standards. The granite walls are stunning, the rosewood details sublime. But what you'll remember are the expansive views from this hilltop setting on 2 manicured acres overlooking a beautiful pool to 150 acres of woods and streams.

L. Anthony Greenberg, Architect

The Manning Dohan Residence, 1962


Los Angeles, CA

SOLD

The Manning Dohan Residence, 1962. Utilizing design concepts honed at the U.S.C. School of Architecture, L. Anthony Greenberg created this classic modern oasis that artfully expands the architectural vocabulary of it's high profile traditional neighborhood. Consciously Eastern in spirit, this individualist's retreat does not proclaim itself, but rather is set naturally within a mature hillside garden. Careful siting provides for privacy, and allows a free flow of light and nature into the interiors.

R.M. Schindler, Architect

The Tischler House, 1949-1950


Los Angeles, CA

SOLD

Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #506. First time on the market since completion in 1950. Schindler's 1952 article, "Visual Techniques," discusses the subjects of "color plasticity, translucency, reflectors and light." These visual techniques are clearly expressed in this monumental three-story street facade topped with a blue translucent, sky-like roof resembling an "upside-down glass-bottomed boat." Glass planes above the kitchen and master bedroom appear to make the house transparent throughout. The nearly free-floating metal fireplace in the living room was completed by Adolph Tischler, an artist and metalsmith. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in the
