A hilltop Los Angeles compound with mountain and city skyline views hit the market for $9.8 million on Thursday.
Spread across 5.7 acres in the city’s Tujunga neighborhood, the estate consists of a futuristic seven-sided glass home, a historic Mid-Century Modern house designed by late starchitect Richard Neutra and a cabin, with a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
The oldest structure on the property was built in 1954 by Neutra for his secretary, Donna Serulnic, according to the listing.
The original 1,350-square-foot hilltop home features two bedrooms and a bathroom. The living room includes a bear valley stone fireplace and an original sofa system equipped with a record player and concealed speakers. Neutra-style built-ins and the wooden textures are pronounced throughout the home.
Half a century later, architect Michael Maltzan designed a new main house—a seven-sided structure with an interior courtyard that was built in 2010, with the owner building out another 875 square feet in 2021.
The owner, listed in records as a trust, purchased the home for $4.25 million in 2018, according to PropertyShark.
The pair of pedigreed properties is surrounded by a curated succulent garden, and other outdoor amenities include a movie pavilion with wind screen, a catering kitchen and a 50-foot-long lap pool by Johnston Vidal, featuring a cozy seating and dining area next to it.
The newer residence includes two bedrooms facing the interior courtyard, two bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, a living room and indoor lounging areas. Glass walls and large windows bring the sunlight into every room. Use of wooden furniture and floors tie the design of this new structure in with the original building of the compound.
The primary suite of the seven-sided structure overlooks the courtyard with a colorful dining area and a view of the city and mountains. The home also features a smart office area, den and garage.
There is also a loft-style wooden cabin with one bedroom within the compound, designed and built by artist Peter Staley.
