Per the Listing: ""We bought the view & built the house around it." As the owners stated when their home was featured in The American Home. A hillside home with a little help from human hands made it possible for city and nature to meet. Near the end of Tigertail, surrounded by nature, this home has been in the family since it was built. With panoramic views, and a large lot at the top of Tigertail, where the city ends and nature begins. A rare offering with all of the views one could ask for: ocean, canyon, city, mountain, and the Getty. The architect, Carleton Winslow Jr, sought to create extra privacy and better living with plenty of room for outdoor living on the balcony and terrace. Protected from summer sun, yet captures sun in the winter. An opportunity to live in this location with these views comes on the market once in a lifetime. Probate sale, court confirmation required."

Why don't more bathrooms have cool mosaics, hmmm? The son of the architect responsible for designing LA's Central Library, Carleton Winslow Jr specialized in churches in Southern California, including the recently demolished St. Martha's Episcopal Church in West Covina. He was also an author and professor of architectural history at USC.
