A Welcome Step Back

17 Dec

The openness of its flowing single-story floor plan beckons for yet another well-attended, smartly attired cocktail party, as quite likely countless such occasions have here been enjoyed.  This is, after all, an entertainer’s playground inside and out, with more than enough space to mingle graciously through the vast, lattice-bordered living room along the terrazzo-floored walkways and walnut cabinetry to the equally roomy combined dining-family room, en route to the telltale floor-to-ceiling walls of glass opening onto the expansive lawn area with tree-lined city views beyond.

If “cottage cheese” ceilings, floral wallpaper and white pile carpet sound appealing, then absolutely nothing need be done to this sweeping 4+5 corner-lot residence.  It’s move-in ready, complete with outdoor lattice to match the living room’s. Nevertheless, even such basic and expected cosmetic updates, plus the uncomplicated addition of a pool, will in no way tarnish the magical aura of this inarguably magnificent mid-century Trousdale Estate.

Remarkably yet respectfully, 1012 Loma Vista Drive has seen but one owner since it’s construction in 1958.  For all the martini shaking this 4,078 square feet should likely have seen, every detail proves impeccably maintained.  Altogether, this truly classic property presents a welcome step back in time, quite literally a once-in-a-lifetime chance at that.  Thankfully such elegant and sound architecture stands to be celebrated time and again for decades to come.
