Cantilevered Modern Perched Above Sunset Strip
From a distance, the glass, steel, and concrete shapes that comprise the home on 8536 Franklin Avenue form a captivating silhouette against the surrounding hillsides. Once inside none of that magic has been lost. Thanks to three separate decks and sweeping glass walls, uninterrupted city and canyon views are served on a silver platter. What’s more is that the modern midcentury residence—located a short drive from Sunset Boulevard—is on a generous lot and enjoys one of the largest street frontages in the area, making it a prime opportunity for expansion or redevelopment. Additionally, the current owner spent years thoughtfully remodeling the home, a process that included installing radiant heat in the flooring and refinishing the exterior.

Upon entry, the home’s main level unfolds, providing an open and central gathering place for the entire 1,600 square foot residence. With the help of floor-to-ceiling glass windows that extend the entire length of the structure, the outdoors truly become a part of the indoor environment.

Embodying a minimalist design aesthetic and anchoring the far end of the main level is the home’s kitchen. A gorgeous fireplace not only acts as a subtle buffer between the dining/cooking areas and the rest of the space but adds mid-century charm.

A set of stairs brings one to the lower compartment of the home where one can design the primary sleeping quarters or use as an extended artist’s studio or office. Handsome glass doors fold open to reveal one of three decks on the property that showcase the beautiful scenery.

This property, located at 8536 Franklin Avenue in Hollywood Hills West, is listed with Pacific Union Associate Alex Quaid and offered at $2,280,000.
