Unique Mid-Century Modern ‘Treehouse’ Up for Grabs Near the Sunset Strip

By Wendy Bowman

Always wanted to settle into a crimson-colored bathtub that appears to float over the bustling metropolis below — all while ensconced in a midcentury modern oasis resembling the legendary “Swiss Family Robinson” treehouse? Then your idyllic home awaits in the prime Hollywood Hills, just steps from the Sunset Strip and a couple blocks from West Hollywood. Originally crafted by architect Douglas A. Brown, and enhanced by additional designers through the years, this three-bedroom, four-bath residence has remained in the same family since it was completed in 1952. Now it’s available for the first time, asking $1.9 million.

“It’s a very dramatic, architectural and sophisticated home, yet simultaneously so warm and comfortable,” says listing agent Maureen Erbe of DPP Real Estate. “It is just above the Sunset Strip and Doheny, in the center of the city, but feels miles away and is extremely private. This house will appeal to any lover of architecture who wants to be close to the city, yet seemingly far away.”
