If you are afraid of heights, you probably don’t want to invest in this 1960s Raul Garduno-designed hillside midcentury property in Los Angeles, California, USA. If you can cope with an elevated view, do read on.
A spectacular house with equally spectacular views, it was designed by Raul F. Garduno somewhere around 1960 – 1962 and is very much of the era. Open plan, steel and glass, post and beam. You get the idea.
There is 1,650 sq. ft. of living space perched on that hill, offering views that take in ‘the vistas of the Hollywood Sign’ and the Griffith Park Observatory. That’s something to wake up to and take in from the 500 sq. ft. of decks that surround the property.
As for the house, it has ‘walls of glass’ around the living and family room, with an open floor plan built around the kitchen in the centre. So much originality too, including the original freestanding fireplace, those beams, the wood floors and most likely, the kitchen units and shelving too. If you love the era, this is right up your street.
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the master suite featuring an atrium, ideal for ‘a wonderful outdoor Zen space’ according to the agent. More space than you think outside too, with the lot covering 7,520 sq. ft. and including trees and ‘lush’ landscaping, as well as a two-vehicle carport.
Again, this is a house that is best described in photos than words, so do check those out. There are more on the agent’s listing page too.
If you do like it, the house is up for $899,000, which works out at around £575,000.
