Although Oscar-winner Meryl Streep only bought the luxury estate in February this year, she reportedly put it on the market again for a $2.25 million profit. The 1954 Research House was designed and built by Honnold & Rex in the first year of the Case Study House Program started by Arts & Architecture magazine.
Sitting on a 0.36-acre lot above the Sunset Strip in the Hollywood Hills, the ultramodern 3,500 square foot mid-century estate features four bedrooms and four bathrooms with ensuite bathrooms and an open concept main floor living space including a two-story living room with stone wall with fireplace and an adjacent formal dining area. The gourmet kitchen with a center island boasts top-notch appliances and opens to a casual dining area and a grand room with a built-in entertainment wall. There is also a drawing room and a flexi-use room with a glass wall overlooking the swimming pool.
The luxury estate has a fortress-like street façade with a secured gate next to a 2-car garage.
The front yard is used as the primary outdoor entertainment area with a swimming pool and a sunken spa, expansive terrace and a lounge area with built-in fire pit. The residence provides sweeping views of the canyon and city lights.
Listing details include “completely customizable audio and security system [that] can be controlled from your Smart phone or computer,” pool, a “direct access, specially ventilated garage” with “special deionized water available for your detailer.”
