There’s a seductive patina of age with original midcentury design elements waiting for the next owner of this midcentury in the Hollywood Hills.
Perched on a hillside located at 3240 Deronda Dr in Beachwood Canyon, the two-bedroom, two-bath fixer was built circa 1958 by architect, artist, and impresario Ronald L. Buck. (Rumor has it that he’s the same guy who transformed the 1929 three-story steel-frame building in West Hollywood that became the exclusive, invite-only nightclub, called The Factory.)
The interior opens to an east-facing wall of floor-to-ceiling windows framing picture-postcard views of Downtown and lush hillside views.
Retaining its 50s flavor, the 1,645-square-foot residence’s notable features include high vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, dark wood paneling lining the walls, built-in glass cabinets, a kitchen with a breakfast bar, original hardware, and a wraparound deck accessible from most rooms.
Listed with Rose Ware and Terry Canfield Schmidt, this mid-century fixer is asking $1.3 million. The property sits on a hillside lot measuring 10,584 square feet and also has a two-car carport and two basement-level storage rooms.
