Beverly Hills Architectural A-Frame
1335 SHADYBROOK DRIVE, BEVERLY HILLS | $3,995,000 | 4 BD | 5 BA
The elusive architectural A-Frame. We tend to think of these homes dotting the Big Bear landscape in Southern California. The rare original owner modernist A-Frame in the city can be a site to behold.
This stunning example of vaulted space couldn’t be more perfect. The indoor lava rock perfectly accents this gorgeous piece of architecture. We hope that someone takes on the stewardship of this home to continue the legacy of this outside mid-century property.
First celebrated in the pages of Architectural Digest in 1965, this midcentury A-Frame masterpiece is now on the market and poised for its next chapter. This architectural refuge, in harmony with nature, was built in 1958 by the current owner and has been enjoyed by them since.
Restore the residence to its former glory or reimagine and refurbish to create a modern paradise optimized for today’s contemporary lifestyle. This very large flat pad is located on a cul-de-sac just outside of Beverly Hills city proper. Having traveled often to Hawaii, the owners “endeavored to recreate an atmosphere of island living,” wrote the AD staff writer.
“Landscaping with volcanic rock and trickling waterfalls among lush foliage lends a tropical aura that continues inside the house as well. Natural materials of wood and stone are used as structural forms. The exposed forms become, at the same time, both the architecture and the decoration.”
This is a rare opportunity to redevelop a unique and special property rich in provenance, sited on a desirable street and just moments to the iconic flats of Beverly Hills, famed Rodeo Drive, and the Westside. Beverly Hills Architectural A-Frame
