This large hillside estate is known as the Shapoory House, and was constructed by architect Amir Farr in 1972. Farr was a colleague of Oscar Niemeyer – the architect of Brasilia and co-architect of the United Nations buildings. He chose this 0.6-acre terrace connected to Griffith Park to construct this unique view home. The central idea behind the home’s design was to connect the idea of the ancient temple with Modernism.
The architect used a mixture of steel, concrete, glass, and red-brick to give the home that modern temple feel. The grand archways at the entry showcase that temple-inspired idea. The home also has a recessed arcade overlooking the pool, plaza and views. The interior of the home showcases that grand scale as well – making the home open and airy.
Some of the home’s features include massive walls of glass and steel, warm wooden ceilings that help soften the more industrial elements, and an open loft-style foyer area that houses a formal dining room, wet bar, living room, family room, and more!
The home’s kitchen is much lighter in color than the rest of the home. It appears to have been updated since the original construction and includes stone countertops and backsplash, lighter colored cabinetry and plenty of counter space.
The family room area is located just off the kitchen and an abundance of natural light, recessed lighting, and a warm red brick fireplace that spans an entire wall.
The home offers 5 large bedrooms with similar stylings, and 6 bathrooms – most of which have also been updated. The house stretches out over 4,220 square feet according to public records. The bedrooms consist of a warmer, wood flooring and most offer views out across the pool and beyond.
The home also offers an office area with built ins and recessed lighting – keeping in similar style with the rest of the home. This room could also be used as a study or home office for those days when you simply don’t feel like going in to the office.
The grand home hardly looks residential at first glance, but don’t be fooled by this home’s unique look. You won’t find another home like this in Los Feliz.
The large backyard and pool area provide you with the perfect place to entertain friends & family.
This home truly has it all from the expansive plaza and pool to views of the park, city and ocean. It’s a must see!
