We love good L.A. history. And, this one is quite a doozy. The family that ran the Los Angeles Times for decades wielded a powerful hand in shaping the city as we know it today. We’d recommend this documentary for anyone who calls L.A their home.
Modern Living LA is happy to extend our congratulations to our buyer on this special and notable architectural home by Lloyd Wright. The Derby House is one of the architect's most recognized properties. The house has found its perfect steward as it needs a reasonable amount of restoration. It’s now it good hands.
Introducing "The Ophelia House," a Jack Weisskopf home designed by renowned architect Edward Fickett, AIA -1959 located in the highly coveted "Nichols Canyon Colony" perched at the crest of tree lined Nichols Canyon.
The SoCal landscape is known for some gorgeous Spanish homes. This renovated Andalusian architectectural is a quintessential example of Hollywood Hills glamour.
We know the time capsule phrase gets bandied around a bit too much. But we think you'll agree, this Beverly Hills architectural home is quite the specimen. Original rugs, wall coverings and sculptures are ever present while perusing thru this home. We applaud the owners for perfecting the intersection of luxury and mid-century over the past 60 years. And, we can finally have that pink and green bathroom.
When we think post and beam, Buff and Hensman are usually the first to come to mind. Here's a fine example from them in Pasadena. The Saltman Residence, 1962. Built by Buff and Hensman and thoughtfully restored and updated by the current owners this quintessential California home has all the character of a Post and Beam with today's modern conveniences.
We saw the pictures of this one before it was renovated. This architectural home in the Beverly Crest neighborhood appeared to be sorely neglected. It was brought back to life by Hollis and Jordyn Design Studio over the past year. Lots of original details mixed with new materials make for a stunning property.
We must confess that John Lautner may be our favorite modernist architect. His designs were unique and very identifiable as his. He did a masterful job of combining materials to soften some of the perceived "coldness" of the modern structures. Here's a one of his smaller designs in the Hollywood Hills.
Here's what dreams are made of. Well, at least our dreams. This stunning example of the Hollywood Regency style by noted architect Elgin Woolf couldn't be closer to perfection. Elegance and sophistication are the foundation of this home. The European styled garden by Nord Eriksson is exquisite. Perhaps we'll get invited to a black-tie affair here one day.
