Maroon 5’s Guitarist Lists a Mid-century Stunner in Los Feliz for $3.8M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo

Located in Los Feliz, the Steel House was built by architect Neil M. Johnson in 1960. Inspired by the Case Study program, the home features a low, rectangular roofline with cantilevered eaves, expansive walls of glass, and a sturdy steel frame.

The Steel House also recently underwent a major renovation under the thoughtful guidance of architectural restoration specialist Mark Haddawy. The project introduced updates and improvements throughout, while still staying true to the home’s midcentury roots.

Maroon 5 Guitarist James B. Valentine purchased the property in 2007, and the year-long renovation began in 2008. “It was great to see the house come back after so many unsympathetic changes,” says Haddawy. “I felt from the beginning that there was a great house under all of that.” And there is a great house—the steel-framed, L-shaped home is set in a lush, gated compound, and it offers spectacular views from almost every angle.
