Los Angeles, CA 1924
Built in 1924 and occupying a majestic Los Feliz hilltop with staggering views from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean, this remarkable property has undergone years of thoughtful restoration at a cost of nearly $17 million. Approximately 27,000 blocks were used in the construction, which were cast by hand, on-site, with an aluminum mold and made out of gravel, granite, sand (from the site) and water. It took ten days for each block to fully dry and cure before it could be used. The house is both powerful and remarkably livable. Brilliantly proportioned rooms flow effortlessly from one to another. Includes four bedrooms (including guest apartment over garage), three and a half baths, screening/billiard room, guest house and a pool with an over 36,000 square foot lot.
