Built 1954
Exceptional Architectural compound offering total hilltop privacy. This stunning pair of pedigreed properties occupy an extraordinary 5.7 acre curated succulent garden. The original structure was built by Richard Neutra FAIA for his secretary, Dorothy Serulnic, in 1953. The 1,350 sq ft floor plan features 2 bedrooms, one bath, walls of glass, a bear valley stone fireplace and a plethora of Neutra designed built-ins, including a sofa system with record player and concealed speakers, multiple desks, shelving systems, dining room table, sliding breakfast nook and vanity. This pristine architectural masterpiece opens to a flat grassy pad with spectacular mountain and city skyline views throughout. Nearly a half a century later, award winning architect Michael Maltzan was commissioned to build the main residence. His unique design is anchored by a 7 sided structure with an interior courtyard. A sensational 875 ft addition was completed by the noteworthy architect in 2021. The entire structure has breathtaking mountain and city skyline views. The heavenly primary suite with curvilinear penny tiled bathroom looks through the courtyard and onto the dramatic view. There is a smart office area, cozy den, and a multitude of built-in storage throughout. The enormous Johnston Vidal lap pool is 50'long. The outdoor movie pavilion with wind screen and catering kitchen is the perfect place to entertain. A unique cabin designed and built by artist Peter Staley completes the unique compound. Just minutes away from DTLA, Pasadena, Los Feliz and Silver Lake, this special compound offers peace and privacy like no other.
