For the first time since 1994, this spacious mid-century home designed by famed architect Maxwell Starkman is on the market, offered at $3,395,000 by its second owner ever. The Los Angeles house was originally designed in 1955 with stone, wood, glass, and gardens, and a later remodel added two floors.
The four-bedroom residence has many original details, including teak hardwood parquet floors, walnut paneling, built-ins, and a copper hood and wood hutch next to the massive stone fireplace.
Modern updates to the kitchen include granite countertops, cathedral ceilings, and a breakfast bar. Upstairs, the second floor is dedicated to the master suite, while the bedroom on the third floor offers a variety of options. The fourth bedroom can be found through its own private entrance, and could act as a home office, artist’s retreat, or guestroom.
The beautiful design of the home and extensive landscaping come together to create the ultimate indoor-outdoor living experience, in a highly sought-after and private location.
Maxwell Starkman, a Los Angeles-based architect who began designing tract homes for the post-Word War II Southern California housing boom, established his own company in the 1950s and ranked 98th among Engineering News Record magazine’s top 400 firms in the nation. His most recent work before he died of natural causes at age 82 was the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. He also designed the Sony Pictures Plaza in Culver City, the Melodyland Theater in Anaheim, as well as office buildings, luxury condominiums, hotels, and mixed-use projects.
