Up for grabs for the first time in 14 years is Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 846, also known as the B.A.G. Fuller Residence.

Tucked among the walk streets of Hollywood Heights, the two-story home was built by Ralph C. Flewelling in 1933 for distinguished author and philosopher Benjamin Apthorp Gould Fuller.

Flewelling, whose father was the head of USC’s philosophy department, also designed the former Beverly Hills Post Office, now the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, as well as the “Electric Fountain” at the corner of Santa Monica and Wilshire boulevards.

Accessed by the famous High Tower elevator, the Streamline Moderne-ish residence contains four bedrooms and 4.5 baths within its 2,616 square feet.

Notable features include steel casement windows, French doors, hardwood and marble floors, wainscoting, three fireplaces, a rooftop deck, and a detached parking garage on High Tower Drive. The Mills Act-covered property also receives significant tax breaks.

Sold for $1.4 million in 2004, it’s now asking $1.749 million.
