Late Sixties Time Capsule by Robert Skinner in Beverly Hills

New, 20 comments

Well lookie here, it's another Beverly Hills time warp by Robert Skinner, whom you may recall as the architect behind the lovingly preserved-in-amber house on Lime Orchard Road that he built as his personal residence (it was later occupied by architect Bruce Becket and family). Designed by Skinner in 1969, this five-bedroom, six-bath modern isn't especially blessed in terms of curb appeal, and evokes a bland seventies high-rise apartment from the back. However, the 6,057 square foot house's interior, though not without faults--take its ghastly kitchen lighting, please!--is pretty damn groovy, boasting vertiginously high ceilings, numerous brick fireplaces, built-in shelving, parquet wood floors, and walls of glass. Sited on a .66 acre lot next door to the historic Virginia Robinson Gardens, it's listed at $8.9 million.
