Mid-century Moderns on the Market
We love Mid-century Modern architecture. It is such a symbol of Los Angeles with its indoor-outdoor flow and cool clean lines. Today we were lucky enough to see two supreme examples of beautiful architecture. They both need a little updating but are completely consistent with the respective years they were built, 1961 and 1962.
The Rowan Residence by Robert Skinner is tucked away off of Coldwater Canyon and has all of its original details including the sunken living room complete with shag carpets.

In the heart of Beverly Hills is an A. Quincy Jones estate that embodies the open floor plan, with a grand room that has an amazing ceiling height of 18 feet. The house begs to be inhabited by someone who loves to entertain.

Let us know if you’d like to see either of these or if you’d like to sell your own Mid-century Masterpiece.
Sometimes Bigger is Better in Beverly Hills
This week’s open houses brought us to two very large homes in Beverly Hills… this happens from time to time, but what was different about these is that they were both done well for how big they are. Respectively they are over 13,000 square feet and 30,000 square feet. They both felt as though they had personal touches which separated them from the tract home McMansions we often see. What also made the 30,000 square foot home feel especially special is that it sits on 20 acres overlooking Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, it’s a truly special piece of land.
