Perfecting his vision of modern, efficient residential design, Gregory Ain presents an elegant plan of close rectangular volumes stepped up a deep sloped lot in this Hollywood Hills home. Strip windows facing the street allow light to permeate while retaining privacy. The rear of the home reaches out to a lush yard through large picture windows, clerestories and glass doors. Deep overhangs shade private patios. The home retains much of its original character and details, including high gabled ceilings, oak flooring, built-in planters and cabinetry and a formidable brick fireplace with lit soffit. A period-sensitive kitchen and respectfully updated baths ensure that living with architecture is not a compromise. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large flat yard. Located on a cul-de-sac, this published home is convenient to restaurants and shopping.
