Carl Marston: 1947 Redwood in the Hollywood HillsAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Using a palette of redwood, brick, concrete and glass, Carl Marston built this home in the Hollywood Hills for himself and his family. It’s been completely renovated and is on the market for $3,250,000.
Mid-century houses are all over Los Angeles. The basics: a 3-bedroom, 3-bath house with a pool in the Sunset Plaza neighborhood. Not so basic: designed by influential architect Carl Maston and superbly renovated for Ryan Murphy (Glee, Nip/Tuck) by Studio 0.10 Architects a few years ago. Now a Los Angeles historic landmark. Sometimes it’s tough to take these houses and make then livable for the 21st Century without giving them the boutique-hotel makeover but here they’ve succeeded in making a liveable yet historic setting. Also the perfect venue for your collection of mid-century design and artifacts.
The pool design has been integrated into the length of the living spaces, a lap pool that looks like a reflecting pool. The house was on the market in 2008, asking $4,150,000. It was unsold and recently offered for $3,250,000. More about that at the listing.
