Designer Nest Without Persing View

Calling all t-shirt-wearing bachelors!  This mid-century modern architectural delight nested in The Birds area of 90069 built in 1953, boasts beautiful detailing and privacy.  The 1 bedroom / 1.75 bath home is located at 1432 Oriole Dr, 90069.  Public record shows the house has 2,535sf of living space.  It also shows the home was once a 2 bedroom. 
1432 Oriole Dr, 90069
The listing comes back to market from taking some time off as a rental, with a $3,750,000 designer price tag for this nest above the Sunset Strip!  

 The listing boasts gated privacy on approximately 1/3 acre (approx. 15,750) of usable land.
The seller is also listing the architectural home as a rental for $14,500/month.  In 1996, you could have rented for $5,000.
The clean and beautiful lines of this home keep the space open and full of diffused light through the walls of glass.  The home centers around the outdoors and pool area.  There really isn't anything view-wise up there, but your compound provides tons of natural settings and garden areas. 
The lighting above the sink adds such a beautiful architectural plane to the space.  The kitchen has poured cement floors, walls of glass and direct access to the dining area.
I like this perspective as it features the resources of this building: glass, cement, wood and stone. 
Wet bar and wood burning fireplace are featured in the living space.  Recessed lighting and incredible sound system complement the bachelor lifestyle.  Time to get sexy, folks.
The master bedroom or should I just say, the bedroom is spacious, light and bright.  A second wood-burning fireplace is located in the bedroom along with direct access to the pool area through the walls of glass.
 The light during the day is absolutely lovely. 
Stand back Stevie Nicks because this bathroom and walk-in closet are beyond spacious and roomy.  Handsome and clean.  Just what you want in a bathroom.  With a wet area including floor to ceiling glass that reveals the outdoors and garden provide you zen.

With plenty of outdoor area for entertaining, it's time to fire up the bachelor pad and start living the mid-century modern lifestyle.
The home was originally purchased May 1998 for $875,000.  Quite an investment in appreciation on this mid-century modern listing courtesy of Jonah Wilson, H&H.  It first hit market back in March 2009 at $4,995,000.
