Calling all California design enthusiasts - you must see this special residence located at the end of a hidden cul de sac in Cheviot Hills! Its museum-quality details were carefully curated by longtime owner Ruth Chess, former president of iconic LA design firm Forms+Surfaces and colleague of renowned mid-century artists Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman. A Panelcarve front door opens to a foyer lined with gorgeous wood tambour paneling that continues into the expansive great room with cathedral ceiling. Anchoring the room is a show-stopping ceramic fireplace designed by Rex Goode for ceramicist Hans Sumpf. Continue into the large family room lined with chestnut paneling to find a second fireplace and the piece de resistance - a 4' x 8' signed Evelyn Ackerman mosaic tile mural (comparable Ackerman pieces currently grace the halls of LACMA) and original Ackerman light fixtures beautifully sited above the curved, beyond-cool bar. The eat-in kitchen with stainless appliances, two sinks and ample cabinetry features the happiest, sunniest tile -- no boring gray quartz here! The primary bedroom is highlighted by a vaulted ceiling and dramatic built-in headboard, while the primary bath features custom Panelcarve cabinetry, contemporary Spanish tile and a soaking tub. A second bedroom and bath, detached 2-car garage, fenced yard, lots of storage, and more vintage designer details complete this property. At almost 2,000 square feet, the residence can be easily converted to a 3-bedroom home or further expanded onto the 12,000+ sqft lot with plenty of room for an ADU. Priced at less than $850 per square foot, this property offers a great opportunity for a new owner to update or expand upon its vintage cool. Located in the coveted Castle Heights school district with easy access to the Griffin Club, Cheviot Hills Shopping Center, Expo light rail and 10 freeway. Truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity, not to be missed.
