Ray Kappe's Waymire Residence in Baldwin Hills

His work, ranging from condos, prefabs, industrial buildings, and single family homes often channel the beauty and simplicity of the Case Study era.

The Waymire Residence, one of Kappe’s earliest completed designs, highlights his scaled-down modernist aesthetic where he masterfully combines steel, glass, and concrete blocks.

Sited on a generously sized hillside lot in Baldwin Hills the home opens up to unparalleled views of Los Angeles that reach from Downtown to Century City.

The 1,906 square feet of interior space offers three bedrooms, 1.75 baths with features that include original details, soaring ceilings, glass walls, and an impressive cantilevered hearth serving as the focal point in the living and dining areas.

Surrounded by Japanese influenced landscaping and mature trees the grounds are serene and private. And, there’s space to extend the deck over the hillside so you can pull up a lounge chair at night and relax while gazing at LA’s twinkling lights and the iconic Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory in the distance.

Asking price is $2.2 million.
