Outpost Modern with a dazzling view

Upper Outpost Estates in the Hollywood Hills is prized by fans of Modernist architecture for a wealth of Mid-Century homes designed to take full advantage of the astonishing views. One example is this very private 1956 residence at 2600 Carman Crest Drive on a serene Upper Outpost cul-de-sac, minutes from the Sunset Strip. Recently remodeled to blend its original appeal with the latest amenities, it’s currently listed by Aaroe Estates Director Eric Lieberman at $2,495,000.

The four-bedroom, four-bath home surrounds you with a sweeping open floor plan and walls of glass that showcase vistas of Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood Hills and downtown LA. From the first, it was designed for entertaining, and the latest refinements have only enhanced that focus. The new marble Bulthaup kitchen with Miele appliances and center island/breakfast bar flows easily to both the sleek dining/living room and high-ceilinged family room. Massive glass doors open to an expansive outdoor deck, erasing the shift from indoors to out. A family room (or extra fifth bedroom) here has its own wine cellar.

On the upper level, city lights shimmer beyond the secluded master suite. Steps below its secluded balcony are two more sunning decks, a private jetted spa and a gently sloping yard leading to two horseshoe courts. Two more bedroom suites and a huge fourth bedroom/office complete this level.

Moments from the heart of Hollywood, this private retreat is ready to surround you in Mid-Century spirit with an ultramodern soul.
