Presenting a remarkable, one-of-a-kind midcentury architectural gem perched in the Hollywood Hills above the famed Sunset Strip, formerly owned by entertainment industry legends Liza Minnelli and Jack Haley Jr. as well as Christina Aguilera. This unique showplace was designed by none other than LA's late modernist Harry Gesner, hailed in memoriam by the New York Times as a "dashing, surf-loving architect whose soaring designs celebrated California's dramatic landscape." From multiple vantage points both inside and out, experience sweeping panoramic views from downtown LA to the sprawling city below and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Towering mature palms sway in the breeze overhead as guests are welcomed by a geometric gate to a sophisticated and commanding angled-slat-wood door, indicative of the home's period of origin and branded with a 'JH' doorknob in homage to previous owner Jack Haley Jr. Inside, an array of shape, form, and texture converge to create spaces that inspire focus and at once harness the visual power of incredible surrounding vistas. Sleek stone encapsulates the sizable conversation pit centered by a bold steel-clad fireplace, adjacent to the formal dining area and wet bar. The kitchen is fitted with warm woods to complement its industrial-modern feel, and the center island includes a cooktop with vent near the eat-in breakfast nook. The formal living room is illuminated by skylights above and accented by an outdoor waterfall feature, visible through walls of glass. The voluminous primary suite, designed to direct the eyes toward views that pop and dazzle, has a fireplace and many areas to lounge and rest. The en-suite bathroom is dressed in marble and includes a soaking tub, glass shower, additional fireplace, and three-sided aquarium, plus dual-sink vanity and large walk-in closet with built-ins and makeup desk. Additional bedrooms have exposed beams, accent walls, and sliding glass doors to the property's wraparound patio. Downstairs, relax and entertain in the screening room that features plush seating for numerous guests, galley bar, temperature-controlled wine room, and tasting nook. The home also includes a custom-built gym/yoga/massage room with its own walk-up marble shower. Outside, there is a sunbathing deck, pool, built-in barbecue, and lagoon-like pebble-finished oversize spa with fireplace. Welcome to your fresh, lavish lifestyle just moments to the plentiful dining, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife options provided by this iconic, coveted locale.
