Curbed Poll: Mid-Century In Lake Hollywood Knolls

New, 28 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're a fan of mashups. We love when two or more disparate elements come together to create something magical. Nirvana and Rick Astley. Chocolate and chili pepper. James Franco and "General Hospital". So we had high hopes when we saw the exterior photo for this 1959 three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath in the Lake Hollywood Knolls. The listing promised us it was "architecturally unique with influences of Frank Lloyd Wright." We thought we might be in for a nice little mashup of mid-century and contemporary influences. But then we saw the interior photos. Yikes. Something went terribly, horribly, excruciatingly wrong, no? And yet...and yet...maybe there's potential there? The house includes a media room, pool, spa, large patio decks and a "custom shower with 6 shower heads." You might have to rip out half the house, but you might wind up with a lovely mid-century home. Or on we on crack and this week has been way too long? The house was last sold in 1992 for $545,000; today's asking price is $1.295 million. Listing is here.
