Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA // Real Estate Development
Nestled in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains, between the neighborhoods of Highland Park and Eagle Rock is a little isolated swath of bucolic beauty that you'd confuse with wine country if the downtown LA skyline wasn't peering over the treetops. This is a perfect setting for 5 single family homes on 1/4 acre lots. The steep slope of the lots to the street allowed us a unique opportunity to design three story homes with the living, kitchen and dining spaces perched up on the third floor. They have both spectacular views over the canyon below and a walk-out back yard at the upper ground level. The master bedroom and den occupy the 2nd floor, quietly nestled into the hillside with views to the street below. Finally, the garage and main entrance are at street level allowing these unique homes the best of both an urban and a secluded feeling.
