Nab Sculptor Morris Levine's 1964 Home for $3.25M

New, 1 comment


The latest well-preserved midcentury time capsule to melt the hearts of the Curbed LA commenters and draw some of their notoriously rare praise is the former home of noted sculptor Morris Levine, which has been celebrated for the "flair and drama" of its "stark angles," proclaimed as " what mcm IS," and elicited an invitation for any "flipping chumps" who don't like it to "buy a piece of crap phony LA Cape Cod" instead. Though Levine had no formal architectural training, he designed over half a dozen apartment buildings in Southern California, as well as two churches on an island in the South Pacific where he was stationed during World War II. He built this 3,480-square-foot Beverly Crest abode in 1964, and it hit the market last week for the second time in its existence with a $3.25M ask. Lose it over the terrazzo floors, milled cedar ceilings and walls, skylights, and the abundance of built-ins below:
