Laurel Canyon Mid Century :: Architect Thornton Abell
8616 Allenwood Rd :: 90046
A mid-century classic designed by Case Study architect Thornton Abell and built in 1959 for Dr. Augustus Bakos, this Hollywood Hills residence has been impeccably restored by Tony Unruh to the architect's vision. Located in the Wonderland School District on a rare, exceedingly private parcel of over an acre, it sits at the end of a long, gated, driveway and offers pastoral canyon and tree top views. Floor to ceiling walls of glass are complemented by handsome Palos Verdes stone work, terrazzo floors, custom divider screens, and beautiful teak cabinetry. A lush garden atrium entry introduces the gracious open plan layout, seamless and ideal for Southern California indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. There is a beautiful granite and stainless steel kitchen, a spectacular master suite with fireplace, huge walk-in closet, and all terrazzo master bath with glass ceiling. There are separate guest quarters, and poolside living room with original fireplace. Harmonious living at its best.
