Carnavon on Caravan

Finally back on the market and finally well priced at $1,450,000 is 3824 Carnavon Way in the hills above Los Feliz.  It is easily my favorite house this week. If you are in the market for an uber-hip, completely updated Mid-Century, do not let this one’s posts and beams pass you by!  With an epic jetliner view, tons of outdoor deck space and your own private beach just off bedroom number 2, the home is setup perfectly for one to take advantage of our city’s weather and on a clear day, the gorgeous landscape/cityscape that lies beyond this house’s arresting wall of glass. Clearly an inspiration for the case study houses that would be built years later, this building is simply an artistic statement that renders the study unnecessary.

Inside the home one cannot avoid feeling hip.  It is so sleek and stylish it’s just begging to be the destination of choice for unusual parties hosting fascinating people.  From the moment one enters the front door, the house reveals itself.  With its wide-open floor plan, it lets you see clearly from the kitchen through the living room to city lights twinkling miles away.  The home boasts a kitchen that is such a work of art that it is on display for all to see.  On the floor below, this home’s new owner will revel in simplicity of design and thoughtful architecture.  A sitting room with a 2 story ceiling, a screening room fit for a mogul, a magnificent deck off of the bedrooms and a shower that could easily handle 4-5 (see comment about parties) all add to this home’s mystique.  I don’t want to sell it… I want to buy it!
