3457 Knoll Drive Architectural

Here’s a really fun architectural home that Tom Otero of Rodeo Realty recently listed. Located in Lake Hollywood Knolls, the home was designed by the late Lorand West, an award winning architect who designed L.A. restaurants such as Morton’s, The Ivy and Trumps, according to the L.A. Times.

West built the house in 1959 as his personal residence. In fact, the circular roof was originally designed to be a helicopter landing pad. The next owner, Marc Christian MacGinnis, worked with his partner to add the second story on top of what was once the landing pad. They also added the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired interiors.

The two-story, 3,287 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2.75 bath mid-century contemporary has a wall of glass in the living room, city/mountain/canyon views, and a circular double-sided fireplace. The master suite’s bath has a custom shower with six heads and steam. Stainless steel, custom cabinetry, and views complete the kitchen space.
Other features include: a media/recording/entertaining room with large power viewing screen, projector, reclining theater chairs, and surround sound speakers; and an entertainer’s backyard with saltwater pool, colored fountains and multi-level large patio decks. The home is located in close proximity to five major studios.
Tom Otero of Rodeo Realty is the listing agent. The house is priced at $1,399,000.
