Dutch-American painter Luc Leestemaker undoubtedly drew inspiration from the surroundings of his Lake Hollywood Estates home, now on the market for $2,398,000. The 1965 Mid-Century Modern house features what once was a lovely art studio that could be transformed into a creative space again.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom residence at 3237 Canyon Lake Drive features breathtaking backyard views of the Hollywood Hills and the Hollywood Sign. The yard is designed for entertaining, with outdoor and porch space encompassing panoramic views of the nearby canyons.
Privately sited on a cul-de-sac, the two-story, 2,725-square-foot home has a fully remodeled kitchen stocked with all the essentials. Elegant hardwood floors and high ceilings create an open, airy ambiance throughout the house.
Amenities such as closed-circuit cameras, recessed lighting, a gas fireplace in the living room, two master bedrooms, and a loft add to the uniqueness and functionality of this home.
Leestemaker was a renowned abstract expressionist, whose patrons included U.S. presidents, politicians, celebrities, and corporations. He created collectives of artists, composers, musicians, and actors early in his career in the Netherlands.
