Attention Mid-Century Loving Eastsiders: We Have Found Your Dream House
|March 22, 2012||Posted by Matt under Los Feliz, Mid-Century, Modern, Real Estate|
The 1966 Mustang. Otherwise known as the Shelby GT350. K-Code Fastback, Paxton supercharger, side-exit dual exhaust with glass-pack mufflers, No-Spin limited slip differential, 440 horsepower at top kick. Dammit Shelby… you are a cruel elusive lover…
Wait what? Oh yeah, sweet house and dude with a beard in the background. Let’s do this.
Everything looks snazzier in black and white. Just ask MySpace. So the house. This is a 1952 Pedigree Minimalist home by noted architect William T. Dreiss; the place pretty much defines open plan design.
The visual entry allows a quick read of linear forms (classic element of Mid-Century modern design). You’ve got floating stairs, Art Walls, Terrazzo floors and dining purposely sited for articulate Downtown skyline views, which run throughout.
The 4th Bedroom returns to the top floor where quiet reigns. Then you’ve got the unmistaken utilitarian beauty of graphic lines in the stainless steel kitchen. Oh yes, we get fancy here at the L.A. Junction.
The side bedroom offers tranquility with private exterior courtyard. The second parcel included in the sales price is a fertile opportunity for new ideas: a flat pad (how Los Feliz is that? lol).
Other features: mature landscaping, private driveway, compound size parcels, and views engulf from most rooms. Oh yeah, and parking for six cars. Which begs the question: why on Buddha’s green Earth would you need 5 other cars when you’ve got a 66′ Shelby? No. Just no.

As always, feel free to answer, comment, ask questions or just ramble.
Stay awesome L.A.
