Developed in the mid-sixties by the firm of Harlan Lee & Associates, Los Feliz Estates may not have the Old-Hollywood mystique of nearby Laughlin Park, or boast as many architecturally significant homes. But when it comes to views, the small enclave north of Los Feliz Boulevard has Laughlin beat, hands down. And sprinkled amidst Los Feliz Estates’ 200 or so properties are a fair number of late-modern gems, such as this striking residence on North Hobart, now making its first ever appearance on the market.
The 3,973-square-foot house was custom-built for its owners in 1976 by USC-trained architect H. Hrant Agbabian, who also designed numerous churches, apartment complexes, and office buildings around Los Angeles.
A symphony of rectangles, squares, redwood, and glass, it features three bedrooms, three and a half baths, an interior courtyard, sliding glass walls, a brick fireplace, and built-in bookcases.
The lower level contains a bonus space with two enclosed bar areas and a wine closet.
And while the .69-acre property doesn’t have a pool, it does have numerous decks and patios to take full advantage of the stunning views.
The property is listed with an asking price of $2.599 million. HOA fees for Los Feliz Estates, which cover security patrols and hillside maintenance, are $3,000 annually. Open house is scheduled Tuesday, September 13 and Thursday, September 15 from 5 to 7 p.m.
