Love This Clean White 1961 House in Bel-Air

I don't necessarily love all the furniture, but the house is nothing short of amazing. Originally designed by famed architect Richard Dorman, AIA, in 1961, this mid-century home has been updated for any modernist buyer's tastes. The floor plan is wide open with free flowing connectivity of rooms, all based in stunning terrazzo flooring, and surrounded by walls of glass leading out to the stunning pool. The master bedroom has been transformed with a luxurious spa like bathroom, and huge walk in closet. The home is located on prestigious Stone Canyon in Bel-Air and has relaxing views of the Stone Canyon Reservoir. On the market in 2009 for as high as $4,200,000, the listing sums up the current offering nicely by saying, "Finally, an exceptional example of modernist architecture at a realistic price."

Of course the home has been updated with modern finishes, but the amazing thing to me when you think about it is that this home was designed and built in 1961, and yet it remains just as beautiful and stunning a home today as it was back then. This is my favorite type of architecture, and represents a great opportunity for a buyer who appreciates a similar aesthetic.
