The Steel House, a quintessential mid-century modern residence owned by Maroon 5’s lead guitarist James B. Valentine, lists in Los Feliz.
Inspired by the Arts & Architecture Case Study House program, the home, designed by architect Neil A. Johnson in 1960, floats above the bustle of the city on a knoll located at 2300 N. Edgemont St, north of the boulevard in prime Los Feliz.
Mark Haddawy, a designer who revamped Mara Rooney’s midcentury and bravely took on a two-year restoration project of John Lautner’s Harpel House, revived the single-story dwelling to its near original form.
Measuring just under 2,100 square feet, the interior highlights clean, crisp lines within an open floor plan featuring sliding glass walls overlooking the terraces, pool and striking city light views, Terrazzo floors, beamed ceilings, and a designer kitchen.
Along with the pool, the gated private grounds of this statement mid-century also has a cold plunge and sauna tucked in the garden.
Last sold in 2006 for $2.2 million, the home is currently listed, asking $3.785 million.
