This home is truly a work of art. The Off Use House, 2001 – by architects Linda Pollari and Robert Somol is situated at the southern edge of Hancock Park, in the lovely Brookside neighborhood. A clean silhouette contrasts beautifully against dense billowing grasses, highlighting this home’s intimate relationship with its green surroundings. A truly relaxing oasis amidst and hustle and bustle of the city.

Inside, polished concrete floors, abundant natural light and an open layout await, where living, dining and kitchen converge to make the ultimate entertainer’s space. I love the stone accent wall: a modern, yet timeless touch.

The current owners have transformed the architects’ former studio into 2 separate bedrooms (and currently use one of them as a home office), so the home features a total of 3 bedrooms – including the awesome primary suite, which is one of the areas the home gets to show off its floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood sliders that completely disappear to maximize indoor-outdoor flow.

Part of the beauty of this home’s design is the way it visually shields its occupants from the busy surrounding cityscape. The home essentially gives “its back” to the street, and draws all attention to the outdoors, as it opens out (with those phenomenal Fleetwood sliders) to a totally zen yard space, with kidney shaped pool, wall of green hedges and artfully designed SoCal landscaping, making for a beautiful lush escape. It’s like a slice of Palm Springs in LA!

I love the clean lines of this long stretch of corrugated steal. 2 long ribbon windows turn the street scene into a cinematic picture show. Genius design, beautiful finishes and a fabulous layout for modern living.

Minutes from tons of local favorites like Republique, Met Her At A Bar, Osteria Mozza, The Grove and much more!
