Hey now! Look who's back--it's our old pal the Warshawsky Residence. Designed in 1961 by Volker Traub, an associate in the Richard Neutra offices, the Hollywood Hills modern hit the market for the second time ever in a foreclosure sale last December. Though the house was far from ship-shape, its good bones were readily apparent, and it sold lickety-split for $890,000 ($90k over asking). The Solar Drive property returned to market in mid-September, after being--per the listing--"re-conceived and restored by designer Waldo Fernandez." Sited on a 5,599 square foot lot, the revamped residence features three bedrooms, two updated baths, hardwood floors, walls of glass, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and the proverbial "jetliner views." Listed for $1.395 million, its current status is sale pending; however, backup offers are still being accepted.
