Timeless Modernist jewel by renowned LA architect

Designed for its perfectly sited space at 2557 Greenvalley Road in Hollywood Hills West, hidden at the end of a long, wooded drive, this sculptural beauty is as breathtaking now as when it was built in 1960.

A tour de force by influential Los Angeles Mid-Century architect Bernard Zimmerman FAIA, it’s a warm, secluded world of sunlight and greenery, inside and out. At every turn, multi-level windows frame leafy closeups. Glass block accent walls shimmer. Oversized sliding glass doors invite easy indoor/outdoor flow to the pool and lush, ultra-private patios.

The sweeping open plan, enriched by new wide plank white oak flooring, revolves around a show-stopping two-story living room with soaring walls made for art.

Beyond the nearby dining room and fireplace lounging area lies a fully remodeled kitchen/family room with waterfall quartz island, Wolf range, bright breakfast setting and walk-in pantry. A spacious bonus room with separate entrance could be an office, playroom or studio.

Upstairs, four bedroom suites are highlighted by an immense primary retreat with his-and-hers baths, vast walk-in closet, gym and two verdant balconies.

On hot summer days, cool off by the secluded aquamarine pool, soothed by the sound of a nearby waterfall. On cool winter nights, relax near one of four wood-burning fireplaces. Advanced amenities underlie it all, including four-zone heating/cooling, Nest programmable thermostats, LED lighting, expansive storage, and much more.

The address is in the top-rated Wonderland School district. It has been said that few people loved architecture, and Los Angeles, as passionately as Bernard Zimmerman. Listed at $3,750,000 by Gary Barkin and Haya Handel, this singular gem is an expression of that devotion—and an architectural vision that transcends time.
