An incredible post-and-beam by pioneering Chinese-American architect Eugene Kinn Choy—once photographed by Julius Shulman—is on the market in Los Angeles, where the Brander House, as it’s called, nestles in a hidden enclave of the Hollywood Hills.
Originally designed in 1959, the sprawling, flat-roofed midcentury home has since been carefully restored and updated, featuring four bedrooms and four full baths over 4,529 square feet. A breezy L-shaped floorplan is enhanced by walls of glass and sliders that open onto a pool and breathtaking views of the downtown skyline.
Architectural details abound, starting with the white-painted facade characterized by ribbing, followed by a grand entrance with water feature and concealed by a patterned concrete screen, and extending indoors, where hardwood, terrazzo, and tiled floors, tongue-and-groove beamed ceilings, paneled walls, and skylights, to name a few, bring the home to life.
A sandstone and travertine marble fireplace anchors the living room which is flanked on two sides by floor-to-ceiling windows. A dining area flows from there, then an enormous kitchen with skylights.
A massive master suite with sauna, an office, family room with wet bar, a detached studio, plus the afore-mentioned pool, four-car garage, and a lighted tennis court are but a few of the home’s offerings.
Located at 7266 Outpost Cove Drive, it’s listed at a cool $9.288 million. Have a look.
