los angeles mad men homes

AMC’s “Man Men” isn’t just a show, it’s a cultural phenomenon. It’s an excuse to get even more nostalgic about the times when cocktail drinking and cigarette smoking in offices was deemed the norm. But it’s also a reason to look back on the fashion, architecture and style of that time and bring it full circle to modern times. In Los Angeles, it’s not hard to find homes that embody the ever-popular mid-century modern details.

One such Los Angeles home was constructed in 1960 in Los Feliz. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home spans 3,300 square feet of space with a modest backyard and swimming pool fit for any fan of the show. While the home has gone through some renovations since its construction, it has stayed true to its roots.

The sprawling open floor plan is bright and airy with white walls, hardwood floors and wooden ceilings. The living room centerpiece is the massive tiled fireplace that features details from floor to ceiling. It features sprawling tree-top views and a backdrop of the entire cityscape. There are multiple patios for residents to enjoy the stunning weather. It has exposed brick, a spa-like master suite and a light and airy feel throughout. The home is currently listed for about $2.1 million.
