architectureforsale.com ™ NEW EXCLUSIVE! / MILTON J. BLACK, ARCHITECT GEORGE DEUTSCH DESIGNER — BUILDER, 1963 Expressionist Modernism Above The Outpost — Los Angeles George Deutsch, a master craftsman and cabinet maker from Germany, worked on a number of John Lautner's projects. Closely involved with the Lautner office, George eventually built his own Lautner-designed house just around the corner from John's famous Carling Residence. This property, just two doors from Deu tsch's Lautner House, has often been mistaken in the past for one by Lautner as well. But George built this house on his own. The design successfully reflects George's deep immersion in the design concepts and esthetics honed while working in the Lautner circle. Carefully sited, the triangular two-story design seamlessly integrates the indoor space with the outdoors. Located in Upper Outpost Estates , the residence has views of the surrounding hills as well as the city, and includes 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and an outdoor spa surrounded by green space. $1,755,000 / David Koch MID CENTURY VIEW RESIDENCE ABOVE THE SUNSET STRIP Modern Ranch – Los Angeles Far from its modest beginnings as a quaint, 1951 ranch-style hillside home, the chrysalis of its recent redesign has resulted in a dramatic, modern sculpture that incorporates many of the tenets of the modern movement. Oversized glass windows and sliding glass doors provide access to south facing views high above street level. Vi stas of the entire Los Angeles basin can be experienced from the common rooms of the house, wrap-around deck, master bedroom and its private patio, as well as the pool and accompanying patio areas. The open floor plan, chef's kitchen with high-end appliances, outdoor barbecue, and lanai provide the perfect template for intimate gatherings as well as large-scale entertaining all within an 11,000 squar e foot lot with incredible views. 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, pool. crosbydoe.com/address/821/Modern-Ranch $2,199,000 / Matthew Berkley 626-665-3699 4241 Newdale Drive — Streamline Moderne in Los Feliz Victor M. Carter Residence, Milton J. Black, Architect, 1935. Milton J. Black's most notable work in Los Angeles spanned several architectural styles, from a Spanish Colonial Revival residence for film star Dolores del Rio, the Deco Mauretania Apartments in Hancock Park, and the legendary hot dog stand, Tail 'o the Pup. Here, one of his rare residential works survives on a quiet, cul-de-sac street in Los Feliz. The aerodynamic curves and more elegant elements of the Steamline Moderne style in the residence are intact, with original casement windows, exterior copper trim and street address, interior magn esite staircase with chrome handrail, and built-in powder room vanity. A porthole window in the front door invites you into the elegance of the first floor formal dining room, and step down living room with fireplace and curved ceiling detail. 4 bedrooms with a 2nd story patio off the master bedroom, 4 bathrooms, den with built-in bar, and terraced backyard with fruit trees. $1,790,000 / Stephen Skuris & Ilana Gafni
