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.
When noted architect Val Powelson set out to build his personal home in 1954, he drew on his full mastery. The current owners have lived here over 34 years; honoring his vision while sensitively upgrading and expanding it.
Nestled in its tree-covered canyon, the ultra-private gated home can’t be seen from the street. Within the sweeping main area, Powelson’s light-filled approach features floor-to-ceiling windows and a beamed tongue-and-groove ceiling. Green views fill every room, while the back yard enjoys a vista west across the canyon.
The open kitchen, part of a 2015 upgrade, is superbly designed and equipped. An earlier, renovation added a seamless second story with family room/library, spacious work areas and bedroom suite. The grounds are glorious, with a patio-circled pool, sunset facing hot tub, and Powelson’s boulder-piled waterfall and fish pond.
A stunning variety of mature trees and shrubs fills the property, and the gardens display an array of flowering plants and succulents year-round. Cooled by ocean breezes up the canyons, the home is made for entertaining.
Runyon Canyon trails are just a walk-up Astral Drive, and both the Valley and the city are nearby. This midcentury romance is ready for its next chapter. Hollywood Hills Val Powelson Mid Century Modern home.
