Open House Obsession: Sanctuary on the Edge of the Hollywood Hills, $2.3MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 8536 Franklin Avenue, Hollywood Hills
When: Sunday, December 10 from 1:00pm-4:00pm
What: A low-slung MId-Century pied-à-terre, this 2-bed, 2-bath minimalist sanctuary was impeccably renovated over the course of four years. On the edge of a canyon, the austere steel and cedar facade gives only a hint of what might be the perfect LA hideout.
Inside, a wall of glass and polished concrete frames the view; every object becomes a piece of sculpture in this gallery-like setting. Even the kitchen is a simple, minimalist slab with a wall of flush cabinets.
What We Love: The wall of glass framing a classic Hockney-esque panorama of the Hills, and the bathtub at one end of the vast living room.
