SPACE-AGE STUNNER LANDS ON MARKET
Private Mid-Century Modern classic offers “wow” factors inside and out
Step back into the sophisticated ‘60s – and out over Coldwater Canyon – in one of the famed “Platform Houses” now on the market in Beverly Hills.
From a concept by celebrated designer Richard Neutra for Stone/Fisher Developers, this Mid-Century Modern marvel was one of a handful of homes built in 1961 by noted architect William Beckett to prove that hillside home sites need not be severely graded for residents to securely revel in the spectacular city and canyon views offered on these properties.
Seen from across the canyon, this Platform House appears to float on air, thanks to the innovative, engineered cantilevered system (which provides structural security), and inspired renowned architecture photographer Julius Shulman to capture an iconic image of this significant home.
Featuring classic post-and-beam design and located on a private cul-de-sac, this Platform House exudes the sense of grace and style expected from a home of this era. You’ll delight in the glamorous style of the time, which has been enhanced by modern luxuries. The single-level, simple rectangular open floor plan (with horizontal emphasis), features wall-to-wall glass that wraps around the living and dining rooms and the master bedroom. Two bedrooms and two baths provide plenty of function and space.
The large chef’s kitchen has been remodeled and refined to offer all the latest culinary and entertainment needs of today’s socially-focused lifestyle. Enjoy an intimate dinner for two or throw a classic cocktail party on the deck, while enjoying spectacular sunsets!
When you alight onto the 45-foot deck that spans the length of the home, you’ll feel like a bird on a bluff – living on the edge of the land with the world at your feet … but also with a very strong sense of security, privacy and above all, freedom. Dare to own an experience few others can even dream of.
