Unique William Kesling-Designed Streamline Moderne Up for Grabs in the Hollywood Hills

By Wendy Bowman

Rumored to have once been occupied by Brat Pack actor Judd Nelson, this Hollywood Hills house in the Cahuenga Pass neighborhood pocket was designed by noted modernist architect William Kesling. Originally built in 1935 and now owned by a local L.A. trauma surgeon, the streamline moderne structure has been meticulously preserved over the years, while simultaneously updated and expanded via the addition of an accessory structure. Now asking $2.1 million, the entire place — essentially two separate houses — is connected via a cantilevered, enclosed walkway.

“I would say one of the greatest moments of the home is the super-cool addition by Mills Studio in 2002,” says listing agent Julia Allos of DPP Real Estate. “Whenever I take buyers to the bottom level, all I hear is ‘Wow.’ The design was so forward-thinking and artful. It plays off of the ’60s, as well as being very current. You kind of feel like you’re in a James Bond movie as you discover and walk through it.”
