Welcome to the Millard Kaufman Residence, an exquisite four-bedroom, three-bathroom Hollywood Hills midcentury masterpiece with Old Hollywood provenance and an exceptional architectural pedigree, including an addition with design by the revered Richard Neutra.
Arrive through a dramatic glass door entry to find a remarkable open-plan great room surrounded by leafy views of the grounds and city beyond. Soaring ceilings dotted with skylights, walls of glass and redwood post-and-beam design provide interest and intrigue at every turn. Glorious decks, patios, and a stunning pool deliver seamless indoor-outdoor living. Open living and dining areas beg to entertain with a tall brick fireplace as the focal point. The spectacular chef's kitchen is a masterwork in form and function, including Walnut cabinetry, a center island/breakfast bar, and an army of professional-grade appliances, including a stunning 48-inch gas range with double ovens.
Downstairs, the master suite is a serene Neutra-designed haven with a boutique-inspired closet and a lavish en suite spa bathroom with a walk-in shower. Updated secondary beds and baths are equally well-appointed, and a large laundry room adds effortless ease to this exceptional home.
Millard Kaufman was an Oscar-nominated screenwriter and novelist who lent his name for blacklisted Dalton Trumbo's 1950 classic "Gun Crazy." He was also co-creator of the cartoon character Mr. Magoo and the writer of the films "Raintree County" and "Bad Day at Black Rock." Millard and his wife Lorraine built and gradually expanded the stunning modernist home with the help of Neutra, Alexander Ban, and Josef Van Der Kar. Celebrated landscape architect Garrett Eckbo crafted the magnificent grounds, and the surrounding neighborhood is filled with architectural gems by the likes of John Lautner, Rudolph Schindler, and Buff & Hensman.
Beautifully maintained over the years and meticulously renovated in 2018 — including the kitchen, bathrooms, floors, and deck — this Hollywood dream home is ready for its next starring role. Centrally located with easy access to Hollywood, WeHo, Beverly Hills, and DTLA restaurants and nightlife, major film and TV studios, and freeways.
