Redwood and Glass in Verdant Hermits Glen, 1951

Description

First offering since 1979. Sited within a verdant pocket of Laurel Canyon, this thoroughly unique mid century residence is attributed to Gene Loose, an instructor at the seminal Chouinard Art Institute founded in 1921. The original namesake of Hermits Glen may have been a man named Frederick M. Shaw born in 1827. Shaw lived as a hermit in the hills for the majority of his life, and has been referred to as “Southern California’s forgotten dreamer.” This early post war modernist redwood and glass house presents a serene ambiance set among the trees at the top of of the street. This is an ideal setting for creative artists, architects, writers, or just about anyone needing a refuge that provides peace and inspiration. The residence includes: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, original built-in cabinetry, and paneling, a terrazzo wrapped eat-in bar, living room with cork flooring, fireplace and balcony, herb garden, barbecue, and an ample backyard with a dramatic cantilevered staircase ascending the hillside.
