Newly up for grabs in Hancock Park is the home of Johnson Hartig, the designer behind the LA-based label Libertine, whose bold fashions are popular with such bold-faced names as Mick Jagger, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, and Anthony Kiedis. Located on North Citrus Avenue just below Oakwood Avenue, the three-bedroom residence has been spotlighted in a slew of publications, including Domino, Coveteur, the French edition of Vogue, and the Los Angeles Times.
Concealed behind hedges, the single-story Spanish Mediterranean was built in 1925. After purchasing the house in 2005, the designer spent the better part of a year on renovating, telling the LA Times, “I wanted to turn it into a simple loft-like space—white, clean and open—then decorate it with art as the focus.”
Along with chalk-white walls and floors, the 1,848-square-foot residence features a modernized kitchen with polished concrete floor, two updated bathrooms with marble countertops, beamed ceilings, two fireplaces, built-ins, and casement windows. Both the master bedroom and the family room have French doors that open to the back garden, which contains a dining patio and an inviting swimming pool.
On a 6,456-square-foot lot, the property is listed with Jenna Cooper of Compass at an asking price of $2.199 million.
