Description

Situated at the apex of one of Hollywood Boulevard’s countless elbow curves, this 1962 Mid-Century Modern gem awaits its second owner. Designed by FAIA architect Marvin Taff, the clean lines are as timeless as California Dreamin’ by The Mamas & The Papas, and as you watch the lights of city come to life at the end of a long day, a well-earned glass of wine in hand, you could easily imagine a song like that being written in a place like this.
For the lover of Mid-Century Modern architecture, this
... property represents a rare opportunity to be the second owner of the Taff House on Hollywood. Someone with vision will recognize the inherent value in the original design, and be creative enough to transform it into something more, a triumphant second act as the Taff House on Hollywood gets ready for its next 60 years.
Located on Hollywood Blvd. just west of Queens Road, the neighborhood brings together maybe the most eclectic mix of characters and history anywhere west of New York City (the house next door was Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall’s first house together- it later sold to musician Woody Herman). Even though the view and natural quiet from your perch feel like a different world, you’ll never get bored with world-famous clubs, restaurants, hotels, and bars just down the hill on the always interesting Sunset strip.
If the original 1554 sq. feet isn’t enough room, then check out the un-permitted but very useful studio apartment underneath the living room. With its own private entrance, small kitchen and separate bath, the space offers a lot of potential uses, perhaps an office, or just as additional storage. The other side of the house also has two additional un-permitted and unfinished rooms perfect for storage, with relatively easy access and high ceilings in one room.
Additional square footage could potentially be accommodated on the flat yard just off the living room and kitchen. A re-imagined kitchen could be extended into the yard— this relatively simple remodel could add several hundred square feet, and maybe also a half bath.
For even more square footage, a new owner could add a new garage with a separate unit on the second floor, maybe a view deck on the roof. Or simply keep the original footprint and add a pool. Additional potential options include converting the current garage to a separate unit (plumbing already in place with permit) with new glass sliding doors and a second view deck.
If you’re lucky enough to wake up under the sleek Redwood slat ceilings and catch the first spark of dawn outlined by the downtown Los Angeles skyline, you’ll likely be inspired to tackle whatever your day brings you, and maybe even write a classic song. Or the next great American novel. Or an Oscar-winning script. The Taff House on Hollywood is for dreamers, and those who strive to make their dreams come true.
