We been waiting to check out this Mid-Century since its was listed on curbed.com in Dec 2011. Known as the Waxman House, the home was designed by Barry Moffitt, AIA (an architect who studied with John Lautner) for artist Arlene Waxman. This vertically designed residence was built in 1964 and is situated east of Laurel Canyon Boulevard in the Studio City Hills.
Steps from the street level lead up to the entrance patio. The house is built up on essentially three levels. The entry level houses one bedroom with steps leading to a second level above with a bedroom and bath.
The main house sits on the top level with the living, dining, kitchen, den and the master. High ceilings, redwood paneling, a wood burning fireplace and clerestory windows are some of the features of the home. Steps from the living room lead up to a small office/ den area with views of the woodsy terraced, patios outside.
The current owners have done a great job of organizing and maintaining the home in its immaculate condition. The home has a warm, open vibe and is surrounded by lush landscaping designed by Jay Griffith.
The home is a great example of mid-century architecture with access to large, outdoor patios from the dining area.
Kitchen has been updated in recent years.
The home was photographed by Julius Shulman a year after it was built and has been published in HOME magazine. Truly a great example of this style of architecture.
