Studio City House With Observatory Asking $1.6M

New, 3 comments

There aren't many private observatories around

This modern house offers one very rare perk: its own observatory, not a planetarium, as originally reported, "complete with a motorized observatory dome and telescope," according to the listing.

The observatory was added in 2003 by the current owners, says listing agent Donovan Healey. Its telescope is accessible from a spiral staircase off the upstairs loft--a studio space with its own en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet, plus exposed beams and three Juliette balconies.

On the first floor, the master bedroom has its own walk-in closet, as well as a steam shower and custom barn doors. The backyard is dominated by a recently redone pool and spa, but saves room for a modest covered patio area. The eco-friendly home is outfitted with solar panels and a tankless water heater.

On a corner lot in the Woodbridge Park neighborhood of Studio City (the same neighborhood as the Brady Bunch house), this unique property is listed for $1.595 million.
