Pete Campbell Selling Ingenious Little Bungalow in Hollywood

New, 23 comments

Actor Vincent Kartheiser, aka Pete Campbell on Mad Men, put a lot of time and energy and tsuris into this awesome little bungalow (603 square feet) in the heart of Hollywood (that's right: not the Hills, just straight-up Hollywood). While it was under construction and toilet-less, he used the facilities at his neighbors, and he hauled a 650-pound rock out of Topanga Canyon to use for a sink. Kartheiser bought the 1912 house back in 2004 and local firm Funn Roberts designed its "Japanese industrial" makeover, which now includes not just a toilet and boulder sink, but also a bed that descends from the ceiling with a redwood headboard that flips down to a desk; a covered courtyard with a coffee table/firepit; and a detached spa with double showers, steam room, dry sauna, laundry room, and power room. It debuted in Dwell last year and now it's up for sale asking $808,000.
