Hollywood Hills Architectural Boathouse

Hip Hollywood Hills Architectural Boathouse with wow factor. This landmark mid century property by iconic architect Harry Gesner, has been thoughtfully renovated and checks all the boxes for a light and bright hillside sanctuary with a bohemian vibe.

Dramatic angles and mid century details can be seen from the moment you pull in to the classic carport. Outfitted with an electric charger, storeroom and welcoming bright colored door, this home makes the perfect pad for part time or full time Los Angeles living.

Gesner’s boathouses were originally constructed in 1959 by a crew of Norwegian shipbuilders. The home’s open floor plan and unique design allow for both public and private spaces with tranquil canyon views of the lush surrounding landscape from almost every room.

The updated kitchen feels open and spacious. Boasting butcher countertops, stainless-steel appliances and an expansive skylight, the space is ideal for entertaining guests and gatherings large and small.

The white-on-white bathroom feels bright and airy with a console sink and floor to ceiling glass shower. The property features two bedrooms one of which is a loft style design with a raised platform perfect for a bed or yoga/meditation room, or the ideal work from home office.
