Known as the Ulm House, the three-story white-stucco residence, standing at 3606 Amesbury Rd in the hills above Los Feliz Boulevard, is believed to be one of 15 single-family streamline moderne dwellings still standing in Los Angeles built by famed 1930’s architect William Kesling.
Characterized by an eye-catching semi-circular, glass-block, the Art Deco residence, measuring 2,309 square feet, opens to “Adjoining living and dining rooms with honey-toned hardwood floors and gigantic, curtain-free steel-trimmed windows that extend all the way to the ceiling flow easily out to a terrazzo terrace with over-the-treetops canyon and city lights views.”
There’s also a decorative fireplace in the living room, built-in seating, a compact but well-lit kitchen, secluded library/office that you can easily convert to a bedroom, and a full bathroom that completes the main level.
Walking up the restored magnesite staircase—lit by natural light streaming through glass blocks—you’ll find two of the three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms featuring colorful vintage tile. The spacious master suite comes with a dressing area and has its own private balcony with city views.
The third bedroom, located on the ground floor, is complete with a wet bar, family room, and has direct access to the expansive private back yard with mature landscaping, illuminated at night with strands of overhead lights. The 5,548-square-foot lot also holds a two-car garage.
Last sold in 2013 for $1.920 million, this architectural gem is now listed for $2.248 million.
