A Midcentury Modern Oasis in Bel Air

By

A timeless architectural estate on one of Bel Air’s most picturesque and desirable streets, 1087 Moraga is a classic midcentury home with plenty of modern twists. Built in 1959, this 3,332-square-foot, single-level estate was originally designed by Benton & Park AIA, students of A. Quincy Jones—famed Los Angeles-based architect and educator known for innovating buildings in the modernist style.

Arrive to a large, pivoting glass entry, which opens to a tranquil, 3,332-square-foot open floor plan filled with rich materials and design elements. Inside the three-bedroom, four-bath home, find porcelain concrete tiles, textured stone walls and Styline floor to ceiling doors, which create a seamless indoor/outdoor flow to the backyard.

A chef’s kitchen complete with Arebescato marble counters, discreet slate grey cabinets, Miele appliances and a large, stone-topped breakfast bar. The family room leads to a private office with an ensuite bath, and the master suite features a spacious walk-in closet and an indoor/outdoor shower.

The oasis-like yard frames a calming view of the lush, foliage-covered hillside and offers a spacious patio deck with a fire pit, ideal for lounging and outdoor entertaining. Take a dip in the original rectangular pool, which has been revamped to include a spa and Baja shelf.

The estate’s convenient Bel Air location allows access to Westwood, Brentwood and Beverly Hills, as well as the University of California at Los Angeles and cultural attractions like The Getty and Hammer museums.

1087 Moraga is offered at $5,495,000.
