Several interesting homes have recently come on the market, including those that were designed by famous architects. Here’s a look at a few of the homes that are available.
Jackie Collins’ Beverly Hills Estate
Five months after her death, novelist Jackie Collins’ Beverly Hills estate has been placed on the market for $30 million. Built in 1992, the design of the 21,784-square-foot home was inspired by a David Hockney painting. After visiting an art gallery with her husband in London, Collins said she began sketching a design for a home that mimicked the pool found in the artist’s work entitled “A Bigger Splash.” The final design was created by architect Ardie Tavangarian.
Resting on one acre of land, the eight-bedroom home connects to a guest house via a 100-foot-long art gallery. The guest house features a gym, sauna, offices and a screening room, while other features of the home include sky lights, marble details, a dramatic curving staircase, built-in shelving and multi-tiered soffits. The home also boasts a cabana, multiple terraces, a swimming pool and a six-car garage.
To view the home, you must demonstrate that you are a serious buyer by getting preapproved.
Wallace Neff’s Schoenborn Home in Los Feliz
The Los Feliz home designed by architect Wallace Neff has been placed on the market for $5 million. Offering 3,900-square-feet of living space, the home features four bedrooms and 5.25 bathrooms at the end of a private driveway set behind gates. Authentically and meticulously restored, the home epitomizes Neff’s early classic Spanish colonial architecture.
Other features of the home include a two-story beam cathedral ceiling, doors leading to patios and verandas, a fireplace with original ironwork by Julius Dietzmann, a gourmet kitchen and a staircase with original tilework. Particularly unique features include tiled Crane baths and hardware from the 1920s as well as original rebuilt doors. The home also boasts panoramic views of canyons, cityscapes and the ocean as well as guest quarters and a rebuilt swimmer’s pool featuring a crescent-shaped waterfall/spa.
The home, which is located at 4447 Cromwell Ave, was originally designed for a bank executive/real estate developer in 1924. The home was last on the market in August 2013, with the closing sale taking place a couple months later at a price of $2.545 million.
J. Constantine Hillman’s Craftsman Home in Pasadena
Designed and constructed by architect J. Constantine Hillman in 1911, a 2,824-square-foot Craftsman home has been placed on the market for $1.995 million. Featuring 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, the home boasts a great room with a 16-foot-high ceiling, textured wood wall paneling and exposed rough-sawn redwood beams. Other features include a massive fireplace characterized by colored decorative tile and a second floor gallery sleeping porch boasting chalet-style windows overlooking the living room. The front porch was reconstructed to its original size after receiving approval from the Pasadena Historical Society.
The home, which is located at 320 Linda Vista Avenue in Pasadena, was originally designed for Hillman’s family of 5. Like the neighboring homes, which were also designed by Hillman, the house is
characterized by its rustic features and lodge-like appearance. The home also boasts views of the San Gabriel Mountains, while the Rose Bowl and Aquatics Center is located adjacent to the property.
