Post and Beam Pagoda "Zolotow House", John Reed, AIA, Comes to Market

"Zolotow House" John Reed, AIA, 1957 - Bel Air
With a key lot hillside position, this post and beam mid-century modern is a tranquil and private 3 bedroom and 3.5 bathroom retreat.  John Reed, AIA is most known for his own Malibu residence built in 1960, but the "Zolotow House" was just the precursor when built in 1957.

The "Reed Residence" followed on the same course, but with horizontal and vertical architectural lines versus the pagoda pitched roof with the overhang ceilings spilling outward and over the decks surrounding this mid-century modern tree house.    
From the locally resourced redwood ceilings, step-down living area, beautiful soffit lighting in the dining room, original built-in kitchen cabinets, walls of glass with sliders abound, the "Zolotow House" is truly a modern home.
Reed's "Zolotow House" is currently being offered for $1,500,00.   The modest $570 per square foot price tag works for me and any other sensible admirer. 
The main level is a spacious 2025sf of open floor plan living space.  The lower level is a 604sf, permitted bonus space that could be used for an office or guest quarters.  The position from the upstairs deck provide tree-top and canyon views with this private hideaway in Beverly Glen.
Recently, the home has been expanded with a master suite and full bath.  The bathroom has been outfitted with Statuary Carrara marble and walk in closet for all your modern wears.
The large .31 acre lot allows plenty of useable outdoor space.  The mature landscaping and garden areas will truly put you into a role from a "Mid-Summer Night's Dream".  The home was last sold in August of 2011 for $1,525,00. 
 A long private drive takes you to your detached two-car garage. 
Contact me if you are interested in viewing this home.  The listing requests a 24 hour notice be given for all showings.
