Curbed – New to Market : Outpost Estates Mid-Century Modern With Terraced Garden Asking $2.2 Million

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom house of mysterious measurements (square footage is not listed) was built in 1955 and is not about to let you forget it. The open floor plan, large windows, and massive fireplace are nice, but the outdoor spaces here are the show-stealers. The deck with hanging fireplace and the meandering paths across nearly an acre of land are all enveloped in privacy by the tall, mature trees. Last sold in 2003 for $ 1.27 million, it’s now listed for $ 2.195 million.

Curbed – New to Market: Intensely Grand Tudor in Westwood Asking $3 Million

Friday, February 13th, 2015

This Tudor-style house in Westwood really knows how to make a first impression. Walk up from the street via a curved staircase, cross under a vine-covered pergola, enter the two-story residence, and walk right into a spacious living room with really elaborate wood-framed ceilings. Built in 1933, according to Redfin, and said to be designed by the same Percy Lewis who was the architect of the Fox Westwood Theatre (now the Village Theatre), the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom house has been restored and upgraded from its old-growth oak floors to its kitchen, which now contains fancy appliances and granite countertops. There’s also a loft in the kids’ room, a built-in booth around one of the many fireplaces, a pool, and a separate “guest apartment” that houses one bedroom and another bathroom. It’s all asking $ 2.995 million.

Curbed – New to Market: 1926 Lloyd Wright House With Basement For Sale For $1 Million

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

Identified in the listing copy as the 1926 “Canyon Retreat,” this Glendale house by architect Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright, features interior arches, curved ceilings, and a large deck overlooking large trees at the back of the property. The more private nooks of the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom dwelling include the master bedroom, which has two closets, and room for an enormous third closet in the small room (currently an office) next door. The basement, a fairly uncommon feature in LA houses, has “room for both a potting shed and wine cellar,” if you’re into that sort of thing. It’s asking $ 1.05 million.

Curbed – PriceChopper: Oilman’s Beautiful 1936 Hacienda is a Steal at $2.45 Million

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

How is this incredible 1936 hacienda still on the market? Cliff May, the father of the California Ranch house, designed the La Habra Heights estate for oilman/banker John Arnholt Smith; it features a central courtyard with a tiled fountain and covered walkways, an olive orchard, an aviary, a pool, and multiple patios across 2.3 acres. The interiors of the four-bedroom, five-bathroom main house are an endless parade of wood and red tile floors, beamed ceilings, and French doors. The property was last seen a year ago asking $ 3 million; now it’s even harder to pass up at $ 2.449 million.

Curbed – New to Market: Questionable Malibu Riviera Motel For Sale For First Time Since 1947 at $7.5 Million

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

Driving down Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and passing the Malibu Riviera Motel, people might think either “nightmare deathtrap” or “quaint beach-bum digs.” The Yelp reviews waver between those two camps as well. (“Perfect for a surfing trip with friends and family and cheap for Malibu” but also “the manager came after my husband with a hammer.”) Even Google Maps knows they’re “budget accommodations with spartan rooms.” The hostelry doesn’t have an ocean view and sits directly next to PCH (that’s not the ocean you’re hearing), but it’s a hotel on 4.34 acres in Malibu, so now that it’s up for sale, it’s going to list for a cool $ 7.5 million, says The Malibu Real Estate Blog, which spoke to the broker for the property (not yet openly listed on the MLS). The property has been in the same family since 1947, so it’ll be exciting to see how some new blood might shake up the place or carry on the offbeat traditions.

Curbed – New to Market: Mid-Century Mod Time Capsule in Pac Pal Asking $2.2 Million

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

We were pretty on board with this well-preserved post and beam in Pacific Palisades until we saw the salmon oven and the pink-fixtured bathroom. And then we were in love. As the listing says, the 1956 house is “wonderfully untouched”; it comes with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a glass-walled family room, that kitchen “in impeccable original condition,” a covered brick patio, and a “ery large yard that backs up to the hiking trail.” None of this comes cheap: the house is asking $ 2.195 million. Whoever has that kind of scratch, we hope they ignore the listing’s note about “Endless potential for updating, expanding, etc.”
