Open House Obsession: The Perfect ’50s Time Capsule on Mulholland Highway, $2.3MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 6145 Mulholland Highway, Hollywood Hills
When: Sunday, October 9 from 2:00PM-5:00PM
What: This 3-bed, 4-bath gem of a single-owner Mid-Century home is the Holy Grail for many MCM fans. Although not by one of the great names of LA architecture, it’s an eminently livable home, very much “as built” but in great condition, in a evocative location with memorable views. Start mixing the highballs.
Kidney-shaped pool? Check.
A family room with fireplace (and a handsome cantilevered hearth) paneled in Douglas fir, plus vintage tile floors and direct access to the pool? Check.
A bright, eat-in kitchen that’s not in the middle of the living room? Check– though possibly the one part of the house that’s later than 1950.
Views from the living/dining room with a stone fireplace and patio? Check.
Off-street parking and the Hollywood sign? Check.
More: Check out the agents’ listing page and video, worth a look for glimpses of the vintage tile bathrooms.
