Local architect Vernon Duckett designed this midcentury stunner in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills, which has 27-ft-high windows to capture the views.
The Californian property was completed in 1964 and is secluded by trees despite being just off Mulholland Drive because of its steep hillside plot. Living spaces unfurl across 4,000 sq ft, with several lounges spread across the three-bedroom home, and a lagoon-shaped swimming pool at the rear of the building.
But the real star of the show is the two-storey living room, which is drenched in light thanks to a wall of windows which reach nearly 30-ft high. Wooden beams cross the ceiling, while a second lofted lounge looks over the living room below.
Timber cabinetry, exposed beams, tiled floors and white walls add to the natural decor, which has been sympathetically updated by the Los Angeles property’s owned over the last four decades.
It’s now on the market via Alphonso|Bjorn for $4.349m.
