Designed by former AIA president Roland Russell in 1961, the thoughtfully upgraded midcentury home at 1450 El Mirador Drive is on the market for $2,899,000. A hexagonal motif runs throughout the interior and exterior, giving shape to features ranging from the roof, to the cabinetry and tile work, to the pool.
The plan is organized around a central atrium, featuring a Japanese cedar, that floods the home with natural light and provides a connective space for lounging, reading, meditation, and entertaining. Upon entering, you encounter a spacious living room anchored by an original pewter fireplace and a custom brass wet bar. Continuous terrazzo flooring leads you to a dining room with custom cabinetry and an upscale kitchen equipped with Miele appliances. The island’s black granite countertop is extended by a hexagonal slab for additional seating.
The home’s master suite enjoys another private atrium, an attached bath, and a library or office space. The atrium boasts a deck and an outdoor tub, allowing the homeowner to indulge in a relaxing soak while peering at the treetops. Hand-painted tiles, a steam shower, cathedral ceilings, and heated flooring outfit the master bath.
Outside, the pool comes with a 10-person hot tub, underwater speakers, and a filtration system. A lawn lies adjacent for outdoor living, while an outdoor shower caps the experience.
This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath residence will be hosting an open house on Sunday, September 10. For more information, inquire here.
