The year is 1961 - the first human orbits the Earth; JFK announces the US will be putting a man on the moon; and this space-age "Platform House" lands on top of the hillside as if it was suspended in space over Beverly Hills. The hillsides of Beverly Hills have long been an urban laboratory of building innovation due to its craggy features and its forward-thinking citizens. Architect Neutra originally designed the "Platform House" concept, and William S. Beckett perfected it. This architecturally significant home was built by Stone-Fisher and was unique enough to be photographed by Julius Shulman. From the street, the house looks like a typical Mid-Century Modern Post & Beam, but viewed across the canyon from Franklin Canyon Park or Beverly Ridge Estates, this sexy, sleek, and stylish home seems to float in the air. This Modernist piece of history, located at the end of a secluded cul de sac, retains the sophistication and glamour of the 1960s, and has been updated with modern luxuries. The one level two bedroom, two bath urban oasis features a simple rectangular plan with horizontal emphasis, and large expanses of windows define the overall design. An open floor plan with wall-to-wall glass wraps around the living, dining and master bedroom, capturing views extending past the canyon towards Century City and the Ocean, all the way to Catalina on clear days. Marvel at the spectacular sunsets painted across the sky daily from the 45 feet long wood deck, which spans the entire length of the home, from the living area to the primary suite. A large chef's kitchen has been remodeled and refined for today's living. Behaviorists and architects say people nesting on serrated sites prefer life on the edge. This home is perfectly perched for people someone who wants to live like a bird on a bluff, seeking a sense of privacy & freedom. (note photos are from when home was previously staged)
