Thornton Abell Mid Century Home
4 BD / 4 BA
A mid-century characteristic home designed by case study architect, Thornton Abell, and built in 1959 for Dr. Augustus Bakos.
This stunning Thornton Abell Mid Century home in the Hollywood Hills has been immaculately restored by Tony Unruh to the architect’s vision. Positioned in the Wonderland School District on a rare, extraordinarily private parcel of over an acre, it sits at the end of a long, gated, driveway and offers rustic canyon and tree top sights.
Floor to ceiling walls of glass are complemented by striking Palos Verdes stone work, terrazzo floors, custom divider screens, and attractive teak cabinetry.
A plush garden atrium entry introduces the gracious open plan layout, seamless and ideal for Southern California indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
A beautiful granite and stainless steel appliance kitchen, a spectacular master suite with dreamy fireplace, generous walk-in closet, and all terrazzo master bath with glass ceiling. There are separate guest quarters, and poolside living room with original fireplace. Harmonious living at its best.
