Real Estate Report: Stylish Mash-up in Hollywood Hills, $1.769M


A few hundred yards from the famed Chateau Marmont- a state of mind as much as a hotel- is this smart little Spanish-meets-Moderne, and it’s on the market for $1.769M.

The Basics: A four-bedroom, three-bath house in the Hollywood Hills built in 1926, asking $1.769M.

Not So Basic: This mash-up of Streamline Moderne and classic Los Angeles Spanish has a pedigree, designed by architect S. Charles Lee, best known as a designer of lavish, eclectic movie theaters in the nineteen-twenties and ‘thirties. For  a small suburban house, this one’s got strong, simple volumes on the exterior, and we’re loving that Art Deco-influenced iron railing across the front. The garage door could use some rethinking, or maybe just a coat of paint.


It’s got the usual handsome living room with a view, doors to the terrace (left) and a big fireplace along with the classic timbered ceiling. The streamlined turret interior (below) and the Chateau Marmont dominating the view of downtown LA. The dining room (also below) also has a great ceiling and French doors with juliet balconies.

The bedrooms and baths, as with most houses of this period, are ordinary but look to be in great shape. The kitchen’s pedestrian, but that might get the price down a bit more- the asking price has already been reduced by $120K and it’s been on the market almost four months.
