From his first commission to his last it’s easy to see why Barry Gittelson is a celebrated architect.
A graduate of USC School of Architecture, Gittelson’s work included West Hollywood’s Bodhi Tree Bookstore, homes in Malibu, Oregon, and Mexico, and this private architectural retreat located at 2353 Stanley Hills Dr in Laurel Canyon.
Completed in 1978, the two-bedroom, two-bath modern residence sits on three parcels measuring 11,274 square feet and is surrounded by mature oak trees and lush green scenery.
Inside, 2,314 square feet span multiple levels and flow with ease from the entry, living and dining room, kitchen, and bedrooms.
Eye-catching features include a serene and private setting, an expansive outdoor deck, a terraced yard, casement and awning windows allowing views of the home’s lush surroundings, a fireplace in the living room, custom wood cabinetry, built-ins, and a two-car garage at street level.
There’s also a one-bedroom, one-bath guest house equipped with its own garage that you can use as your home office or list it on Airbnb.
Offered for the first time, the home is represented by Ian Rhodes & Kimberly Green, seeking $1.9 million.
