Mid-Century Moderns on Park Drive

Mid-Century Moderns on Park Drive

Two unique Mid-Century homes recently came to market on Park Drive just down the street from one another and right across the way from Elysian Park.  Both homes exude privacy, serenity, and are perfectly sited on much-coveted Park Drive.

2157 Park - Mid-Century deck

The first of the two, 2157 Park Drive, is a Mid-Century Modern Post & Beam built in 1956 and priced at $849,000.

This two bedroom, 2 bath 1,300+ sq/ft home offers up a very bright multi-level floor plan, bathed in natural light, that opens up to a spacious deck with a terraced backyard complete with waterfall and views of the Observatory and Hollywood sign.

Recently updated, this home features Brazilian walnut floors, white Calcutta marble counter tops, and a Viking range sure to satisfy any Eastside foodie or localvore.

The bathrooms have also been completely updated with a sleek, modern look and liberal use of dark granite tile.

For those looking for an added sense of security, both the home and parking port are gated.

2145 Park - swimming pool

The second home, 2145 Park Drive, is an Austin Ayers architectural built in 1946 known as the “Elliott House.” With two bedrooms and 1.5 baths, this 1,700+ sq/ft pool home is priced at $1,399,000.

Period touches like the Mid-Century fireplace and slate floors in the living room, blend effortlessly with newer bamboo flooring and stainless steel appliances found in the kitchen, not to mention the polished cement floors of the bathroom.

One of my favorite features of this home are the steel-framed windows found throughout, particularly in the dining room and bathroom, running next to the large porcelain tub.

As great as the usable space is indoors, the outside space is perfect for entertaining guests or spending a lazy Sunday. The large, open wrap-around deck has canyon views that look over to a pool and yard below.
