Sculptor Morris Levine's Fantastic Mid-Century Modern Time Capsule in Bev Crest Asking $3.25 Million

New, 51 comments


Hitting the market today for only the second time in its existence is this very snazzy modern house designed in 1964 by noted sculptor Morris Levine as his own family residence. According to a 2006 LA Times article, though Levine had no formal architectural training, he designed "at least half a dozen apartment buildings in Southern California," as well as two churches on an island in the South Pacific where he was stationed during World War II. The artist lived in his custom-built Beverly Crest home for four decades before passing away in 2004 at the age of 90. Per the listing, the 3,480-square-foot house features four bedrooms, three and a-half baths, a home office, terrazzo floors, milled cedar ceilings and walls, skylights, an abundance of built-in storage, an outdoor dining area, and a solar-heated pool. Sited on a .66-acre lot, it's asking $3.25 million.
