The embodiment of the Hollywood dream, this reimagined midcentury home at 2522 Mount Beacon Terrace in coveted Los Feliz Oaks captures incredible views of the Hollywood sign from nearly every room. Not to be upstaged, the residence itself is the epitome of modern sophistication, blending its historic bones with contemporary design detail. Originally built in 1953, the home sits at the end of a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac, amidst sweeping canyon views.
“My absolute favorite part of the house is the arrival experience,” says Nick Sandler, who represents the property in partnership with Bennett Hirsch. “There is an emotional moment when you walk through the front door and immediately glimpse the Norwegian herringbone oak floors, flowing to the custom kitchen with distinct iron and glass display cabinets—all while glass window walls frame the view of the Hollywood sign.”
“While the view may be the star of the show, the reimagined design is what truly sets the residence apart,” adds Bennett. “Every detail has been carefully curated and crafted, from maintaining the original 1950s doorknob to adding a window to the marble master bedroom shower that perfectly frames the view.”
The 2,518-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath home showcases post and beam ceilings that soar over the open-plan, main-floor great room, designed for gathering and entertaining. The chef’s kitchen showcases a Carrara marble island with breakfast bar, new stainless steel Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and custom cabinetry. The great room opens to a spacious view balcony just off the kitchen.
Downstairs, find the cozy den with a wine fridge and wet bar, and three bedrooms, including the stunning master suite with a custom walk-in closet and spa-style bathroom. A spacious terrace spans the width of the lower level, leading to the flat, grassy lawn and dining patio set amidst leafy canyon views.
The Oaks neighborhood of Los Feliz is situated in the Hollywood Hills, adjacent to Griffith Park. One of the most scenic and tranquil neighborhoods in Los Angeles, The Oaks is home to hilly, tree-lined streets and a range of architectural styles. It provides a quiet refuge from city life, while located just minutes from the heart of Los Feliz, restaurants, shopping and nightlife.
