Here’s an opportunity to restore an original modernist home by Los Angeles-based architect Charles G. Kanner, known for his intelligent, fresh designs with subtle edges.
Branding his style “modernism out of the internationalist school,” Kanner led more than 130 public and private projects ranging from the design of new complexes around the world to the renovation of iconic historic buildings (most notably the expansion of the Los Angeles Central Library), and this sprawling two-story residence in Beverly Hills that sits on over half an acre of land.
The 5,290 square foot home opens up to an eye-popping entry-hall atrium allowing tons of natural light over the grand quarter-landing staircase.
Staying true to the modernist era, the first floor is populated by walls of glass, allowing indoor-outdoor California living. Features include a fireplace in the family room, wet bar, floor-to-soaring-ceiling bookcases, oversized living room, powder room, and a maid’s quarters with laundry room. And most rooms look out to the lushly landscaped backyard with a pool – the perfect setting for a martini sipping afternoon.
There are three bedrooms upstairs, two bathrooms and a utility room.
If you want a second home, you can buy the adjacent 73,410 square foot parcel for $495,000 and build from the ground up. Located at 9509 Heather Rd, the property is listed by Jeff Kohl with a list price of $3.995 million.
