Transport Yourself Into a Mid-Century Glass Box

1522 Rising Glen Rd, 90069
Water Feature Amongst Glass Wall
A couple of weeks ago, I breezed by this listing on the MLS and thought to revisit this well designed home built in 1957.  The 3 Bedroom / 2 Bath spacious home is tucked away in the Hollywood Hills, 1522 Rising Glen Rd, 90069 with a current list price of $2,749,000.  This exquisite Mid-Century Post and Beam, updated Modern home with sophisticated amenities and details throughout the glass box wraps around Southern California's comfort zone, the pool.  Listing courtesy of Peter Lorimer.

The lighting inside is diffused at times of the day to give soft impressions of the architectural lines of this Modern home.  Plenty of sunshine can be had, too through multiple skylights.  

The Kitchen has many amenities to accommodate large gatherings including a pantry.  The Kitchen's open plan allows the flow of the galley Kitchen area to spill into the Family Room and thus open it up to feel a lot larger.  Having the natural sunlight through the skylight adds natural warmth to the Kitchen.
Floor to ceiling panels of glass throughout this home expose the outdoors of this hillside hide-out.  Situated in the Hollywood Hills above Sunset Plaza on over 15,000sf of land you will find ultimate privacy within the spacious home.
The exposed and open Dining area overlooks the hillside calm and the Jay Griffith designed landscape.
The Office / Library has custom built-ins and walls of glass exposing the decorative stone-faced retaining wall as well as all the greenery from the outdoors.  There are many outdoor sitting areas and plenty of water features to enjoy.
The sleeping areas are all light and bright with plenty of room.  Details and finishes throughout are top-end with walls of glass in the bathrooms to provide natural light.  Remember, we are in a glass box!

 Ice the shaker.  Pour the booze.  It's time for poolside cocktails.
"Tell me quick.  Ain't that a kick in the head?"  This home should not be missed by anyone in the market for a beautiful and well-maintained Mid-Century Modern home. This one is truly exceptional. 

Hence, if this listing(MLS#11-529315) inspires you and you would like to see it first-hand, please give me a call, 213-305-8537, to set up a showing.

In the meantime, have a modern day!
