The Ansalem A. Ernst House by Gregory Ain c. 1937. LA Historic-Cultural Monument No. 840. First time on market in over twenty years, this iconic home is located in the coveted Los Feliz Oaks. This striking work of early modernist architecture features serene indoor/outdoor flow with sweeping canyon views. Artfully sited on a wide lot with mature trees & meandering paths, Ain's visionary philosophy is displayed in the original features & details throughout, with pure lines reminiscent of mentor Richard Neutra. On the main level, the under-lit entryway leads into a living room with expansive walls of glass, high ceilings, a dual level fireplace, and outdoor deck. The kitchen features original cabinetry and a panoramic view from the breakfast nook. On the lower level, private bedroom suites feature large windows and outdoor access, accentuating the natural setting. Currently under Mills Act with extensive tax benefits. A truly rare opportunity to restore an important piece of LA history.
