The timing is so right. Actress Rooney Mara’s mid-century modern home in The Oaks neighborhood of Los Feliz just hit the market. And, with Mother’s Day around the corner, this is a hint, kids.
Architect Phil Brown originally built this mid-century modern home for his parents. Actress Mara Rooney purchased it a few years ago from fellow actor Alexander Skarsgård and added Hollywood glam to this 1963 glass and steel house.
The residence is situated on a view-filled promontory and retains its original open floor plan. Rooney added white terrazzo flooring that reflects light through the glass-walled public spaces, including a living area with a fireplace, the dining area, and a spectacularly mint-colored and expensively equipped galley-style kitchen.
An office is not too far from the kitchen (formerly used as a bedroom.) The other two bedrooms occupy a wing on the other side of the house. The primary suite is divine. It’s generous in size and enjoys views filtered through a lush green garden, making it a perfect space for breakfast in bed on those lazy Sunday mornings.
With endless sweeping views of the surrounding city, this is your chance to own a rare combination of location, privacy, and modern architecture. (And kids, a great Mother’s Day gift.)
