Now up for grabs in Los Angeles, California, is a striking contemporary offering nearly 2,500 square feet. The four-bedroom home was designed in 2017 by local architect Paul Harrison as his personal residence, and sits on a spacious corner lot near Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood.
"With this home, I wanted to create a property that stood out in a sea of contemporary look-alike McMansions," states Harrison. "I worked with a playful mix of modern industrial and French farmhouse styles to create a stylish, distinct structure." Nestled behind a row of thick hedges, the home extends a warm welcome immediately upon crossing the gated entrance, with native plants dotting the stone walkway leading to the front door.
Inside, an open floor plan unites the loft-like living and dining areas, which blend effortlessly with the adjacent kitchen. Broad windows and sliding glass doors create an indoor/outdoor connection, while also allowing natural light and fresh breezes to flow through the main level. The home’s overall sense of space is further enhanced by the tongue-and-groove cedar ceilings, which soar at 12 feet high.
On the upper level, the home features a bright and airy office space, in addition to the spacious bedrooms. While each of the bedrooms offer ensuite baths, the primary suite also presents a balcony which overlooks the glistening pool in the backyard. "I wanted the backyard to feel like an everyday vacation in the middle of the city," explains Harrison, "complete with a steam shower, sauna, plunge pool, spa, and water features."
Also located in the backyard is a one-bedroom accessory dwelling unit (ADU) boasting an additional 620 square feet of living space. "I chose to include an ADU that works as a stand-alone unit or can be accessed by the main house as a way to increase square footage, allowing for multiple configurations to suit family needs," says Harrison. Complete with a separate entrance, the one-bedroom, one-bath structure can easily serve as a guest house or rental property. Scroll ahead to see more of the property, currently listed for $2,650,000.
