This mid-century modern home in Laurel Canyon has a treehouse vibe.
Built in 1961 on a 3,798-square-foot hillside lot in the heart of Laurel Canyon, 8501 Cole Crest Drive is oriented to capture sweeping panoramic canyon views from the floor-to-ceiling windows running the entire length of the northeast facing wall.
Renovated from the studs up, when you enter the two-story dwelling, measuring 1,158 square feet with updated systems, you see an open floor plan combining the living room, dining area, and kitchen featuring a center island with Carrara marble counters, black cabinets, and an integrated Bertazzoni range. There’s also a half bathroom with a Nero Marquina marble backsplash for a touch of glam.
The lower level is where you’ll find two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, enjoy more canyon views, and likely lounge for hours on the sizeable Mangaris wood deck with three separate seating and dining areas accessible from either floor.
Listed by RSR for $1.199 million, this mid-century house also comes with a detached two-car garage and additional parking in the driveway.
