New on the market is this romantic Spanish with bygone glam-era details still intact.Located in the Outpost Estates neighborhood of the Hollywood Hills, 2061 Outpost Drive is part of real estate developer C.E. Toberman’s original planned residential community where “Architecture was limited to pure Spanish with hip, not flat, roofs of genuine kiln tile and rigid build-ing restrictions required plaster wall construction that assured enduring strength and earthquake resistance. This was an up-to-date development with ornamental street lights, concrete roads and side-walks, and underground utilities…all the last word in modern planning.”
The single story residence, tucked above the street, spans 2,325 square feet. Original glam-era details start at the fanciful craftsmanship of the front wood door that opens to a formal turreted entry with original-looking tile at your feet. The living room features an arched doorway, wood burning fireplace with a detailed mantle, high ceilings, and large windows with etched glass bringing lots of natural light.
On the other side, the formal dining room, currently set up to host a dinner party of eight, sits just off the spacious kitchen. The three bedrooms take up their own space in the house with the master suite featuring his-and-hers closets and ensuite bathroom.
The entire house is dotted with windows showing off leafy views and doors leading to outdoor spaces, including a tiled veranda shaded by mature foliage. Sitting on a 8,329-square-foot lot, the home backs up to Runyon Canyon. Last sold in 2015 for $1.835 million, the home is currently listed for $2.250 million.
