Let the Solar Shine!

Designed by architect, Volker Traub in 1961, The Warshawsky Residence is now being offered at a very reasonable price for this 2 bedroom / 2 bath mid-century modern home for sale at 2433 Solar Dr, 90046.  In over 1,452sf of living space, you can enjoy the serene landscape of Runyon Canyon with walls of glass leading to the outdoors and a private ridge top garden.  
2433 Solar Dr, 90046

Recognized by Dr. Thomas Hines for making a significant contribution to the Neutra office, Traub has, in the Neutra tradition, masterfully sited the home to capture dramatic city & valley vistas. 
The living area is spacious, light and bright.  The dark stained hardwood floors have been laid in a herringbone pattern, while the fireplace separates the living area from the dining area. 
The wood paneling in the dining area makes the mid-century modern statement with built-in cabinets and drawers.  You have direct access to the kitchen through the doorway.

The kitchen is in need of appliances.  Other than that, you are good to go!  Other areas of the house need much more love and care. 
 I kinda dig this wallpaper in one of the bedrooms.
Talk about a view!  The question is just how many others are trying to enjoy it?  It is Runyon Canyon, after all...
Being that this is a foreclosed home, there are many things that need attention.  Don't be fooled though, with a little TLC, this place will come back to life in no-time!

  The home has a 2-car carport.
Currently listed at $799,990 and the property rests on 5,600sf of land atop a ridge overlooking Hollywood.  Listing courtesy of Robert Walters, Lel Prp, MLS 11-569585.
