Curbed Poll: Streamline Moderne In the Hollywood Hills

New, 39 comments

Taking a page from our sister site Racked LA, we're asking you to look at this home and vote on whether you like or dislike it—your choices are 'That's Rather Lovely!,' 'So close,' 'I feel strangely ambivalent about it,' or 'That's Rather Hideous!'

We feel slightly torn about this home. One on hand, we love the sleek lines of Streamline Moderne homes. On the other, this house has some incongruous Asian decor touches at odds with the house, especially around the hot tub. On one hand, there are some great details like Art Deco light features and tile work. On the other, the house is pink. And the bathroom is totally over the top. Is that good or bad? From the listing: "This very rare & uniquely restored 1936 Art Deco Streamlined Moderne in the 'South Beach Style' may have been designed & built by famed Los Angeles builder William Kessling. Sited on a lot and a half in the Hollywood Hills West-Cahuenga Pass area with panoramic views of the Universal Entertainment Complex and Verdugo Mountain range. The main house features 3 bedrooms + 3 baths, gourmet kitchen, family room and private terrace." There is also a separate guest house. Asking price: $1.275 million.
