Three Great Houses That Made Our Day
Some Tuesdays are better than others. This Tuesday was great. Here are the three most interesting things we saw…
First we were swooning over the whitewater ocean views, but that was just from the parking. The main house has wonderful light and views from everywhere, a library and a sculpting room. The lot is almost an acre which leaves plenty of room for a pool and the guesthouse which just happens to be the 1950 Eames-Saarinen Case Study Nine. All this right next door to The Eames House aka Case Study House No. 8 where Charles & Ray Eames lived and worked.

Over in Venice on Speedway
A National Register Venice landmark is on the market. This 1911 Craftsman known as The Venice Beach House has served as a boarding establishment for over 30 years. It is 4,300 squarefeet of guestrooms on a 7,900 squarefoot lot (that’s colossal for Venice!). A rare opportunity to create a large seaside home or to carry on with the boarding tradition.

Beautiful House with great history on Stone Canyon
Designed for Judy Garland by Wallace Neff and inhabited by Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye and Jerry Magnin. It is a beautiful 5 bedroom traditional with pool, cabana and writer’s cabin on approx 2.5 acres. A lot of history just up the road from the recently remodeled Hotel Bel-Air.
