My Notes

Designed by architect William Kesling for 1930s movie star Wallace Beery,this three-bedroom 1936 home is considered the Jewel of StreamlineModerne. The first striking impressions are the horizontal “speedlines” and wing-like Pergola gates accented by an eco-friendlygarden of mature succulents. A mosaic-tiled fountain—the only waterfeature Kesling designed—draws visitors to the hidden front door,which opens to a dramatic living/dining room with ten-footceilings. Clearstory and casement windows lend an indoor/outdoor feel,framing a view of the expansive and beautifully landscaped backyardfeaturing a koi pond, original stone barbecue, and meandering pathsleading to a bubbling rock fountain. Inside, hardwood floors and arecently restored Roman Brick fireplace lend warmth uncommon in such amodern home. The bathrooms have been lovingly restored to their 1930sglamour, while a full-house-and-garden sound system, modern roofingmaterial and tankless water heater update the home to present- daystandards. Truly an architectural treasure; a pocket of Old Hollywoodnestled comfortably amidst thenew.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Mid City West home values will rise 0.7% next year, compared to a 2.6% increase for Los Angeles as a whole. Among Mid City West homes, this home is valued 7.8% less than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 9.3% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Mid City West, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 7% greater than in Los Angeles, and 58.7% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Mid City West home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Los Angeles.
