This award-winning modern compound in the Hollywood Hills’ enchanting Beachwood Canyon offers everything you love about California living.
Designed by Michael Ferguson, the founder and principal architect of Space International—who is responsible for masterfully re-vamping mid-century masterpieces by Schindler, Buff, Straub & Hensman, and Thorton Abel—used the footprint of the previous home to create a new residence “comprised of two main rectangular volumes which are shifted off-axis from each other to accentuate the difference in program which lies within.”
With a clean and streamlined aesthetic, the home and guest studio sits on a private, oversized street-to-street lot on 3231 Deronda Drive.
Surrounded by expansive glass, the open living, dining, and kitchen area takes full advantage of breathtaking views and impeccably landscaped outdoor spaces. Pocket sliders open on both sides of the living room to bring the outdoors in, offering easy access to the multiple entertaining areas and the saltwater pool.
Opposite the public areas, twinkling city views are also seen from the four bedrooms and the primary suite with a mid-century-inspired bathroom. Downstairs, there’s a guest studio with a full bathroom, making it a perfect spot for your overnight guests or a home office.
Currently owned by director Oskar Holmedal, the home won the Los Angeles Architectural Award in 2012 and was featured in Design Milk and the Dwell on Design Home Tour Series. Last sold in 2005 for $1.405 million, the home is listed with an asking price of $4.175 million.
