"Recently completed by Revival Renovates Design, this home is a love letter to original Los Angeles Spanish and Art Deco architecture," says listing agent Benjamin Kahle. "The commanding Leimert Park Spanish colonial revival perfectly marries the memorable with the modern. Grand, original tripartite windows drench the oversized living room in natural light, and the space features custom new ceiling frescoes and seamlessly flows into a large dining area, flanked with late-1920s decorative iron work."
"The house was originally built as a holiday home in 1958, and has since been thoroughly transformed, rebuilt, and extended in 2018," according to the listing agent. "An elegant and gifted architectural style allows the house to orientate itself unhindered toward the beautiful meadows with the water and woodland beyond. This retreat would be ideal for the nature-loving couple or family who dream of living in the middle of a soundscape of wild game, wild pheasants, and hundreds of other birds’ loud appreciation of their surroundings."
"Sphinx Hill is an architectural masterpiece. Built in 1999, the postmodernist property was designed by British architect John Outram as a modern interpretation of an ancient Egyptian home and boasts richly colored interiors, breathtaking design details, glorious gardens, and sweeping river views," says the listing agent. "Outram’s use of brilliant hues and bold gestures has earned him a high reputation. Among his works are the Storm Water Pumping Station, Isle of Dogs London (1985–8, now Grade II* listed), the New House at Wadhurst Park, Sussex (1978–86, now Grade I listed), and the Computational Engineering Building (Duncan Hall). Sphinx Hill is no exception to this architect’s impressive works. Dubbed locally as the ‘Egyptian House,’ the home is immediately eye-catching with its eclectic exterior and commanding riverfront position."
"The Thomas McLean house comes with a rich history. Located across from Susan B. Anthony’s childhood home, the home was also featured in the book A Simpler Way of Life, as well as the movie The Horse Whisperer starring Robert Redford and Scarlett Johansson," according to listing agent Abbey McCormick. "A number of historic details remain, including the original period Dutch-style front door, window sashes, doors with Norfolk hinges, and four fireplaces with original mantels. Also included in the sale is the original post office in Battenville, founded by Daniel Anthony in 1829."
"Welcome to Nichols Canyon Place—a renovated residence that comes with dramatic soaring ceilings, picturesque windows that invite natural light in, and an open living concept. The floors are wrapped in beautiful wide-plank light hardwood. The main floor has a beautiful office, a spacious formal dining room, and a beautifully remodeled chef’s kitchen with Ian Walmsley custom cabinetry that flows seamlessly into the light-infused family room," says listing agent Andrew Mortaza.
