Mid-Century Jewel in Franklin Hills

Perched at the top of a quiet cul de sac in the Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Feliz find this stylish and sophisticated 4-bedroom view home. Originally built in 1939, the house underwent a small post and beam addition in 1965 by acclaimed mid-century architect Kazuo Umemoto, AIA; over the last two years, the current owners have painstakingly updated their abode to honor its traditional roots and mid-century character whilst furnishing modern comforts and conveniences at every turn. A new brick fireplace anchors the sun-drenched living room but doesn't distract from views of the Moreno Highlands beyond. The dining room and kitchen are an aesthete's homage to true mid-century modern design, featuring custom continuous-grain alder cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops, panelized Smeg and Fisher & Paykel appliances, Rejuvenation lighting, and dazzling terrazzo tiles. Two bright, airy bedrooms and a newly renovated full bath complete the upper level. On the lower level find a primary bedroom boasting custom Smith & Noble motorized blinds with blackout shades, as well as an Architectural Digest-worthy primary bathroom dressed in Morris & Co. wallpaper, Carrara marble and Kallista fixtures. The fourth bedroom -- perfect for a nursery or home office -- is located off the patio-facing media room. Throughout the home, revel in gleaming red oak hardwood floors, new high-efficiency HVAC, Vivint smart thermostat and security system with cameras, and all new Anderson windows and doors with fire protection glass and TruScene screens. Exit the home through the glass sliders in the dining or media rooms to discover multiple outdoor entertaining spaces, a verdant garden, and a sprawling lawn. All this around the corner from the very best of Hyperion: Gelson's, Barbrix, Speranza, Tomato Pie, and Trader Joe's, to name a few. Franklin Avenue Elementary School.
