Temple Hill House
Originally constructed in 1965, this beautiful, 2,125 square foot home was renovated in 2013 to create a luxurious 4 bed, 3.5 bath oasis in the Hollywood Hills. While trying to preserve the design intention of the original Buff, Straub, and Hensman home, Architect Don Mathias Dimster added important additional rooms and a gorgeous rooftop terrace. Located in the hills of Beachwood Canyon, this downhill lot had been previously subdivided and left no opportunity to add beyond the existing footprint. The entire structure was reengineered to add a roof deck – valuable flat area on the steep lot. To protect the clean lines of the original home, the roof deck was surrounded with a glass railing; barely visible from the outside and allowing for unobstructed views. The stair was extended to the roof level and two glass landings let light filter through to the floors below.
Originally designed by master architect Rex Lotery in 1960, and restored in 2015 by the architectural firm Woods + Dangaran, the Trousdale Residence is located in the storied Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills. The project maintained the midcentury vision of the house while updating the finishes and opening up the original layout with a large kitchen and entertaining space. Raised, wood-clad ceilings surrounded by Clerestory windows bring in natural light throughout the entry and main living spaces. The interior space features extensive teak casework and terrazzo flooring throughout.
Originally built in 1978, builder Scott Harris and designer Jennie Garth did a total transformation to create a beautiful 4,000 square foot, 5 bed, 4.5 bath luxury home. From wood stained cabinetry to a custom floating fireplace to a hillside infinity pool with a underwater speaker system, Garth and Harris did not take anything off the table. The creativity and design of the home is as unique as the homeowner herself. With the home on 42,500 square feet of plentiful greenery and 180 degree views of San Fernando Valley, the yard was screaming for a putting green and water features.
