beautiful house for sale in Hollywood Hills
For Sale

Modern movement design of wood and glass perched in the hillside of the Cahuenga Pass with spectacular views of the San Gabriel Mountains. Property includes six lots, built, renovated and lovingly cared for by the same family for over six decades, the story of this dwelling is as unusual as its setting. Author and improvisational theater educator, Viola Spolin and her husband, Ed Spolin, builder and carpenter for renowned architect Rudolph Schindler, settled in the hill after WWII. Chicago's father of improv comedy, legendary original director of Second City, the late PauI Sills, and his wife Carol inherited the property from his mother, Viola, in 2004. There is an organic bohemian flow to this home. Built on two lots, the structure is positioned to take advantage of nature's panorama as seen through the 'open' walls of mahogany and glass--as well as complex 3-D forms and warm materials--all characteristic of Schindler's designs. Mahogany, fir and cedar interiors and custom built-in furnishings. While its foundation and structure have undergone serious renovations, the original space and 'feng shui' remain. Staggered terraces, charming walking paths, pool and gardens enhance the feeling of a private oasis.
