Location: Los Angeles, California
Price: $9.288 million
Known as the Brander House, this mid-century modern classic was designed by Chinese-American architect Eugene Kinn Choy, who also designed the Cathay Bank building in Los Angeles’s Chinatown.
It was subsequently immortalized by preeminent architectural photographer Julius Shulman and featured in The Los Angeles Times Home Magazine.
“It’s an incredible opportunity for someone who appreciates a true mid-century house,” said co-listing agent Donovan Healey, estates director at Hilton & Hyland Beverly Hills.
“It’s from an era that will forever be cool,” Mr. Healey said. “Essentially, this is a Palm Springs house in the heart of the Hollywood Hills.”
Plus, he said: “The demand for these iconic L.A. properties is definitely growing.”
The largely flat 1.25-acre lot offers striking views of downtown.
“You have head-on views to downtown L.A. that will be there forever,” Mr. Healey said.
Nestled in a hidden enclave, this gated house offers a wealth of distinctive mid-century architectural elements. Foremost among them is the imposing sandstone and travertine marble fireplace that occupies almost an entire wall in the living room.
Other design features include floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, interior beams and posts, the dining room’s floating built-in buffet, and sliding glass doors that open to the pool.
“The kitchen has original cabinetry, a classic midcentury backsplash, marble countertops and a huge island,” Mr. Healey said. “It’s quite large, a chef’s kitchen.”
The 4,500-square-foot house has four bedrooms and four full bathrooms.
Amenities include a lighted tennis court, large pool, detached studio and a four-car garage. There’s also a small sauna inside.
“The house is in Outpost Estates,” Mr. Healey said. “It’s prime Hollywood Hills, a very desirable enclave. Lots of celebrities.”
For hikers and dog walkers, the house is also close to the Runyon Canyon trail system, he said.
