This gorgeous, updated Mid-Century Modern home was designed by Edward Fickett, FAIA with expansive floor to ceiling windows and panoramic views of Hollywood that will make even the celebrity crowd jealous. The home’s post and beam design transport you back in time while still offering modern amenities.
Ficket was a Los Angeles native, and truly understood the SoCal Lifestyle. According to Wikipedia, “….through his work with such notable developers as Joseph Eichler, Fickett designed more than 60,000 post-war homes, along the way pioneering and promoting many of the concepts now seen as synonymous with California Modernism. Fickett was responsible for the planning and design of over seventy residential communities containing in excess of 40,000 single-family dwellings. Fourteen of these developments have been cited by the AIA, NAHB along with numerous trade and professional magazines for their excellence of design. Better Homes and Gardens declared Fickett, “The Frank Llyod Wright of the 1950s”.”
The open floor plan and gorgeous wood floors create clean lines in this chic Hollywood Hills abode. The colorful doors and stainless steel accents make the home feel more like a contemporary modern home than a mid-century.
The striking walls of glass offer views while still keeping the home private.
There are sliding glass doors that lead three generous levels of patio space. The home is perpendicular to the street giving you better views and faces south for maximum sunlight exposure.
The seemingly ultra-modern kitchen offers stainless steel accents and shiny fixtures – while still paying homage to the home’s history. The stove pictured above appears to be original – such a nice touch in a historic home like this one.
The bathrooms have also been updated with wooden floors and stainless steel counter tops. The row of windows at the roof line and the block lighting again remind you of the home’s mid-century origin.
Clerestory windows run the length of the home for cross ventilation and Northern light, while the outdoor spaces offer the perfect place to entertain.
The home is located up Beachwood Canyon near the Hollywood sign and offers incredible views of Griffith Observatory, views of Downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood below.
This posh pad provides a truly magical setting that’s fit for a celebrity – and it’s priced under a million dollars. Homes like this one don’t last long, and it’s easy to understand why!
