HOLLYWOOD HILLS VAL POWELSON MID CENTURY MODERN
2550 ASTRAL DRIVE, LOS ANGELES | $3,995,000 | 4 BD | 4 BA
Architect Val Powelson designed this residence on Astral drive for himself. While it’s been updated modified with a second story, the charm is still evident in the clean lines, open floor plan and plenty of windows to allow the L.A. sunlight to shine thru.
BEL AIR MID CENTURY CHIC
960 CHANTILLY ROAD, LOS ANGELES | $2,899,000 | 3 BD | 4 BA
I think we all know by now that grandma-chic is hip. Move over influencers, this is old school style. This mid-century modern has tons of its original 1960’s charm. Giant windows great you upon entering. A gorgeous, curved staircase climbing up the double height entry is minimal, but stunning.
Classic stone, brick and wood finishes adorn the walls. A burnt orange backdrop for the dining room really sets the mood. And, maybe if you ask nicely, she’ll throw in one of the floral sofas.
HOLLYWOOD HILLS MAGINFICENT MID-CENTURY ON MULLHOLLAND
7932 MULHOLLAND DRIVE, LOS ANGELES | $4,200,000 | 3 BD | 3 BA
What’s more “L.A.” than a mid-century view house off Mulholland Drive? Situated behind a gate up a private drive, this architectural property may be a little too on the nose for a Hollywood cliche. It’s got a pool with an oversized deck looking the hills and the “Valley”. Maybe it’ll show up in a Tarantino film….
Right at the heart of it all, you will find this newly renovated mid-century modern refuge with dramatic views and beautiful light flowing throughout each room from morning until sundown.
CARMEL “THE BUTTERFLY HOUSE” BY FRANK WYNKOOP
26320 Scenic Rd., Carmel | $40,000,000 | 3 BD | 4 BA
A trip up the coast can bring many delights. One of our favorite houses is the Butterfly House in Carmel by Frank Wynkoop. If you’ve ever been to Carmel by the Sea, you’ve certainly noticed this house perched perfectly on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
And, even if you haven’t seen it in person, it’s been featured in Architectural Digest along with plenty of other publications recognizing its architectural brilliance. Jamie Bush of @jamiebushco gets the accolades for the meticulous restoration and renovation. Even if most of us don’t fall under the income bracket to afford this one, we can still dream.

Rarely does a mid-century home come up for sale in the Alphabet Street of Pacific Palisades. This one may be on the smaller side, but it got charm to spare.
