Buy Cinerama Dome Designer Pierre Cabrol's Hollywood Home

New, 15 comments


This new addition to the market is the former residence of Pierre Cabrol, a French-born architect who worked in the firm of Welton Becket and Associates from 1957 to 1987. One might expect Cabrol, the lead designer of the Cinerama Dome and contributing designer on the Capitol Records Building, to have lived in a modernist/futurist-style pad, mais au contraire--his former home is a straightforward, albeit rather lovely, Spanish bungalow built in 1920. Located across from Runyon Canyon in the lower Hollywood Hills, the 2,100-square-foot residence has three bedrooms, two baths, an office, dining room, living room, kitchen, and laundry. Features include hardwood floors, French doors and windows, a gas fireplace, vintage tile, upgraded electrical and plumbing systems, a tankless water heater, and a two-car garage. Sited on an 8,952-square-foot lot, the property is listed with an asking price of $1.35 million. Per the listing agent, "an estate sale will be held once the home is in contract," featuring "original artwork and prints by the likes of Georges Braque and Diebenkorn, designer furniture and original project notes, promotional materials and design mock ups from the various projects Cabrol was involved with (including Walt Disney World's Polynesian Resort)."
