This remarkable Los Feliz home in the highly desirable Franklin Hills neighborhood is a stunning example of noted architect Dick E. Lowry’s coveted Mid-century modern designs. Built in 1964 and impeccably updated, the home rests on a hillside offering breathtaking views of surrounding hills and downtown Los Angeles. Dramatic banks of windows, Lowry’s signature design feature, are present throughout the residence. Nowhere are they more dazzling than at the home’s entrance, where a soaring wall of glass betrays the impressive entry with its open rail and riser staircase and equally impressive upper level gallery hallway. The home is a celebration of geometric design, and an homage to the constant interplay of shadow and light, with its pitched, vaulted and interrupted ceilings and masterful use of vertical wall space.
In the living room, sections of beautifully stained vertical shiplap paneling complement a white floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround, interrupted only by a wall-to-wall floating hearth. Oversize sliding glass doors open to an intimate terrace, creating a taste of Southern California’s renowned indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The newly remodeled eat-in kitchen features a stylish concrete floor, spacious center island with bar, handsome custom teak cabinetry and high-end stainless appliances. A guest bedroom/office completes the main level.
Upstairs, the master suite plus two guest bedrooms provide restful retreats offering privacy, comfort and awe-inspiring views. The master suite’s luxurious bath, as well as the bath shared by the guest rooms feature designer tile, countertops and hardware.
The lovely outdoor entertaining areas host hardscaping, a built-in natural gas line for grilling, new landscape lighting, and numerous fruit trees and berry bushes.
This singular, architect-designed home is located in the Franklin Elementary School District, mere minutes from all the amenities Los Feliz Village and Sunset Junction have to offer
