Built in 1959 this gated mid-century estate was designed by the first Chinese American architect, Eugene Kinn Choy, to join the AIA in Southern California. His firm, Choy Associates, designed, built, and restored residential and commercial buildings including merging New Formalism with traditional Chinese decorative elements for Cathay Bank.
Hidden in an enclave of the Hollywood Hills, this residence offers stately scale with original features and era-sensitive updates. Inside, a sandstone and travertine marble fireplace anchors the entire living room and sets a warm and stylish tone to the house.
Additional architectural features include, an expansive use of floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outdoors in, beam ceilings, a floating built-in buffet in the dining room, and beautiful, natural wood kitchen cabinetry.
Sited on 56,194 of largely flat land, the grounds include an illuminated tennis court, a large pool, a detached studio, 4 car garage, water features, and opportunities for expanded.
And, of course, no luxury home is complete without a pool and views.
