What’s interesting about this house is the verticality. Mid-century modern homes so often employ a sleek, single level design. But with this home, Lotery opted to use the hillside parcel very efficiently by designing a 3-level structure. And even with the additional height, the home still possesses a profile that is undeniably sleek. Sassy, even.
The main living areas are all on the lower level in a space that, itself, is split into multiple levels allowing for high ceilings, lots of light, and incredible sight lines between the individual rooms. I don’t know how many magazines this home may have been featured in over the years, if any at all, but it is certainly worthy of a spread. Just look at the volume of this space. The light in here is heavenly, thanks to 3 levels of windows, all of which feature mitered corners.
There are so many great features to take in just in this one view: a dining area that’s above and adjacent to the living room; beautiful wood paneled walls and ceiling; an open staircase; and clerestory windows that continue from the living room, wrapping around several corners along the way. And the globe light fixture is icing on the cake. (And to whoever buys this place: if your inspector says you need a railing along the perimeter of the dining room, please, please ignore such nonsense.)
As with the living room and dining room, the kitchen boasts volume and light. Break out the chef’s knife, Tamar, because this is a great workspace!
An office, library, darkroom, and wine cellar round out the rest of the non-bedroom spaces occupying the 2,920 square feet of this magnificent home.
Speaking of bedrooms, there are three and they are all located on the walled-off upper level.
You know how infomercials just keep adding features and additional gadgets “all for one low price”? That’s sort of how I feel about this house. The house alone is worth the asking price and then you step outside and are treated to a pool, patios, plantings and views! And, of course, it also comes with a 2-car garage. Oh, and it also includes an adjacent parcel! So I’d suggest that you get yourself over to see this gem as soon as possible because it ain’t gonna last. Give me a ring, and we’ll go together.
