Barbara Bestor Reimagined Los Feliz MCM With Insane Views

1935 Mayview Dr.

I had the pleasure of touring this über cool home earlier in the week. It's a special property that effectively takes advantage of sweeping views and an abundance of light. Very modern and open with a keen minimalist style. There is a considerable amount of outdoor space that compliments the interior perfectly. The flow is certainly ingenious. This is a great, low maintenance property, perfect as a pied-à-terre, second home or primary residence. Who needs a TV when you have that view?

Los Feliz Mid Century Modern With A View

This uber chic, Mid Century Modern nestled in the Franklin Hills is a wonderful retreat sited on an east facing, view lot, high above Hyperion. The home is bathed in light all day long.

High-End Flip In Los Feliz

3727 Effingham Pl. sold for a cool $1,000,000 last April.  It is a 1938 traditional that was frankly tired and depressing. It looked like this:

In 9 months, the flipper has turned it into this lovely Los Feliz Estate.  

The home has been completely updated.

It looks like they took it down to the studs and started over.

They did a very nice job maintaining the original character of the home.

The renovation was careful. The attention to detail was decent.

The pool is a nice addition.

  • 3722 Effingham Pl

Simple. Elegant. Refined. Buy this Silver Lake house now!

1973 Redesdale Avenue, 90039

Another Josef Van der Kar, AIA hit the market this weekend. This wonderful Silver Lake home exemplifies the renowned architect’s point of view… And by point of view, I mean aesthetically, not politically.  For an interesting read about Van der Kar’s amazing connection to cold-war-era politics, click here.

Purchased for just $275,000 by its current owner in 1995 it is listed today at $1,070,000 after what seems to be extensive renovations, repairs, care and a devotion to Van der Kar’s original vision for the home.

With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1,840 SF it sits back from the street overlooking the reservoir. The 8,451 SF lot is being maximized for true California outdoor living.

Grand Theft Abode- Steal this house!


2190 Talmadge St. in Los Feliz

It’s called “The Gogol House, 1939” according to the listing.  Raphael Soriano is the architect responsible.  At $1,195,000 this 2,779 SF home built in 1939 could be yours! The current owner purchased it for $915K in 2003 (over asking).

Soriano was an influential figure in the evolution of “mid-century” architecture; home design practices and their implementation.  This is a great example of his early work.

It is important to note that he is a fellow Trojan, having graduated from USC in 1934… FIGHT ON!

What do you get for your million-two?  3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms, decks, glass and a great pedigree to hang on your wall!

The listing rightfully states that this is “a rare opportunity to own an important residence by an iconic, mid-century modern architect.”

3813 Rhonda Vista Pl. In Los Feliz. Sporting Wood!

It's all about the wood!

New on the market today is this ultra contemporary Los Feliz architectural "statement" with very sharp lines, a sterile outward point of view and an ominous exterior.  But there seems to be a wonderful inner core to the home.  The warm tones and softness of the abundant wood and massive walls of glass make it approachable as a house and not just a monolithic piece of art. $2,495,000 get's you 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 4,106 SF on a huge street to street lot! Offered by Crosby Doe Associates.
