Cool Home Crush – 1230 Scenic Before and After

I first blogged about this delicious Mid Century home last year. It came on the market just days after I did a walking tour around trendy and in-demand Adams Hill. I had been remarking and dreaming about that home, it’s a lovely private location and commanding views of iconic Forest Lawn.

I predicted someone would snatch it up and restore/improve it and boy HOWDY, I was right! Below is the original Cool Home Crush post from last year, but I went ahead and added the “before” and “after” photos.

Offers on this new listing are due tomorrow, February 10. I am available to show this to any qualified (and unrepresented) buyer – I’d love to sell it and obtain visitation rights!


Today’s cool home crush is a stunning Mid Century Home in Los Angeles adjacent Adams Hill.  Perched on a super-private knoll this sprawling ranch home enjoys some awesome views and a ton of elbow room. The interior is a near-perfect time capsule of the 1960’s – and the burnt orange carpets are nearly back in style!

We love the ranch-style floor plan where the common living areas are open and connected to the backyard and the private areas are grouped together. We also love the Mid Century details like the patterned concrete block screen and the dual-sided fireplace room divider.

Someone will restore or renovate this into a wonderful high-end bit of real estate overlooking Los Angeles. It is in completely original condition – good news for the architectural purists in the room. Any money spent to restore or renovate is money well spent!
