When architectural beauties go Hollywood

Any home designed by the revered Richard Neutra naturally captures the architectural spotlight. But the 1953 Schaarman House is owned by advertising icon Jeffrey B. Gorman — a man who appreciates its star appeal as much as its dramatic beauty. With his help, it’s amassed a string of film and commercial credits that any human actor would envy. The home at 7850 Torreyson Drive in the Hollywood Hills has just been listed by Aaron Kirman at $8,000,000.


Set back above Mulholland in a quiet, gated cul-de-sac on nearly an acre, the Schaarman Home reflects Neutra’s signature love of experimentation, connection to nature, and simple geometry. It’s highlighted by walls of glass, long sweeps of beamed hardwood ceiling and a massive rough stone fireplace.


The residence overlooks sweeping views of city lights and distant San Gabriel Mountains, with vast pastoral views sweeping away from both sides. An entry garden reflecting pool, expansive flat lawn and large pool highlight the grounds. On the opposite side of the property, a separate one-bedroom guest house is hidden away by mature trees and surrounded by stunning views. The striking locale has enhanced an array of commercials and movies. It even played a feature role as the set of the 2001 film The Anniversary Party starring Alan Cumming, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, Kevin Kline and Gwyneth Paltrow.
