Maroon 5 guitarist James B. Valentine lists Midcentury stunner in Los Feliz

By Neal J. Leitereg

Maroon 5 lead guitarist James B. Valentine has listed his Los Feliz home for sale at $3.785 million.

Built in 1960, the striking Midcentury Modern-style house is known as the Steel House for its steel construction and cantilevered wing. Architect Neil A. Johnson drew inspiration from the postwar Arts & Architecture Case Study House program when designing the residence. A recent restoration by Mark Haddawy has brought it back to its original form.

Set on a knoll with city-light views, the single-story home epitomizes cool California modernism with its clean lines, overhanging eaves and walls of glass. Some 2,100 square feet of interior features Terrazzo floors, beamed ceilings and an open floor plan.
