At first glance, we thought this was a life-sized model of a Lundby dolls house (look them up). But it is actually a 1950s three-bedroom midcentury modern property in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Dating back to 1959, you’ll find this place on a ‘quiet street’ and in a ‘prime outpost’ of the city. Of course, that will add to its value, What will also add to the asking price is a detailed renovation job. This place has certainly been on the receiving end of a lot of attention.
The result is pretty much a mix of the original design, fighting it out with some modern-day fixtures and fittings. So the distinctive angled roof, vaulted ceilings, walls of glass and an open-plan layout for this place as you would expect, but a modern kitchen and bathrooms and the kind of clean modern finishes you might expect of a new build.
As for space, that’s down as 2,3330 sq. ft. internally, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a master bedroom that takes up one side of the house. There’s also an office you can convert to a fourth bedroom, those open reception spaces and a ‘large, flat grassy yard’ that can be accessed through all public rooms and the office. There’s also a two-car garage offered as part of the deal.
See the listing for more images and more details of those finishes. Not cheap if you want it though, selling for $1,795,000, which coverts to £1,093,845 at today’s rates.
