Originally designed for famed choreographer Eugene Loring, the Hollywood Hills abode comes with thoughtful additions and a two-bedroom guest house.
Located at the end of a long, private drive, and set atop the Hollywood Hills, the midcentury home was designed by Richard Neutra for acclaimed dancer and choreographer Eugene Loring, whose extensive credits include Funny Face and A Star Is Born. Built in 1958, the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath Loring House also features respectful additions by Escher GuneWardena Architecture and Steven Ehrlich, FAIA.
Broad roof overhangs with a slim column facade create a simple, architectural gesture that promotes indoor/outdoor living. Full-height, retractable glass doors blend the interior spaces with the grounds, providing wonderful views of the city below. Midcentury modern elements are represented throughout the home.
Black slate flooring accents the living spaces. A built-in fireplace designed by Neutra is wrapped with brick and accented with a steel support member. The grand, light-filled living room opens onto the home's magnificent grounds and private bamboo garden. A pool, grassy lawn, and canyon views add to the elaborate gardens. On the private grounds sits the Kalfus Guest House, a two-bedroom guest house completed with a two-story art studio designed by Steven Ehrlich, FAIA.
