DPP Kicks Off the Fall at Union Station

On the morning of September 9th, Deasy Penner Podley partners and staff members traveled from all across the city of Los Angeles to gather at Union Station for an exciting fall kick-off meeting. The venue of Union Station was carefully selected for its historical as well as symbolic significance, as described by chairman Mike Deasy in his opening speech. Union Station is an icon of Los Angeles architecture; combining Art Deco, Mission Revival, and Streamline Moderne styles. The historic station is also a symbol of community and togetherness. As the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States, Union Station brings together travelers from many different communities. This idea of strength through community was a major focus point for Chairman Mike Deasy and CEO George Penner as they discussed both the current and future goals for Deasy Penner Podley as a company. Other topics of discussion included new tools and strategies to drum up business as well as an update on the auctioning platform plumBid. And of course, in keeping with DPP’s efforts to be an eco-conscious company, partners and staff from Santa Monica to Glendora were encouraged to ride the metro to and from the event.

It’s together, stronger and together, forward for Deasy Penner Podley!

Untouched 1945 California ranch listed for first time at $1.4M

by Megan Barber

Located in Fillmore, California, a little more than an hour from downtown Los Angeles, this four-bedroom, four-bath midcentury home just hit the market for the first time. Designed in 1945 by California architect Frank W. Green, the home is situated on a hill with views of pastures, the town of Fillmore, and the agrarian Heritage Valley.

Built in the style of the classic California ranch, the home was featured in Sunset magazine and photographed by Maynard L. Parker, a Los Angeles-based architectural and garden photographer, in 1946. With a formal colonnaded entry and double height ceilings, the 3,033-square-foot home is light and airy. Expansive glass walls open to panoramic views and a terrace, while a fireplace adds coziness.

A Tree Grows Through the Center Of This Echo Park Rental

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo

Designed by Simon Storey of Anonymous Architects, you can rent this striking grownup treehouse for $9,000.

From the outside, you might not even notice the giant tree growing straight up through the middle of this Echo Park, California home. But once you get inside, the solid trunk shooting up from the forest floor, through a bedroom, and out of the roof is undeniable.

Tucked in between towering Cypress trees on a steep hillside in Echo Park, Anonymous Architects’ “House in Trees” is exactly what its name implies. Strategically placed on the hillside between three large cedars, architect Simon Storey chose to preserve the massive fourth tree in the center of the site, leaving it in place and incorporating it into the design.

“The house is like a minimalist barn that seems to be floating over the steep hillside, with an undulating roof that mimics the topography,” says broker Kristal Moffett of Deasy Penner Podley. “There are not a lot of architectural homes for rent, and to find a one-of-a-kind house that is this dramatic, in such a delightful location, is a genuinely rare opportunity.”

Clad in reclaimed wood, the 2,400-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home certainly features special details that you don’t find in most rental properties. There are retractable glass walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, handmade tiles in the kitchen, a custom bookshelf that doubles as a staircase to a lofted play space, and even an electric car charger in the garage. The fully-tiled master bath features a sunken soaking tub and a steam shower alongside a large picture window with a shaded canyon view. There are also two levels of cantilevered decks where residents can relax and enjoy the stellar sunsets.
