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.
Another excellent architectural in Trousdale Estates. This exceptional example of a mid-century home has a plenty to love. Whether it is the gorgeous woodwork, the terrazzo flooring or the walls of glass, this home delivers. The generous size pool caps off the tour. We're hoping for an invite to the next BBQ.
Luxury houses are in no short supply on Rising Glen. This modernized mid-century is the personification of understated elegance. These original clean lines coupled with a sophisticated renovation make a beautiful match.
While we wouldn't expect Japanese modern from the architect best known for the Sierra Towers, we are quite impressed. Sited on a 27,000 square foot lot, lies with serene post and beam architectural home with zen gardens, a koi pond with walking bridge and stunning Cyprus shaped pool. All this in the center of the city.
When a house pops up in Crestwood Hills we get excited. This architectural home by A Quincy Jones and Whitney Smith did not let us down. Known as the Goldenfeld House, this property has been updated with respect to its origins. Clean lines and lots of glass always makes up happy.
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.
Private and gated Mid Century Pool Home in the Hollywood Hills. As Hollywood was transitioning from the vintage glamour of the 1930’s and 1940’s, to what would become commonly known as the “mid century” design aesthetic. Ludwig Gluskin (a prominent band leader who worked with Orson Wells and George Burns) would commission architect Harry B Aarens to design a modern home on a special piece of property in the Hollywood Hills.
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.
