Tucked away on a hill in serene Mount Washington and originally built as part of a MOCA exhibition, this contemporary residence—profiled in the New York Times—was designed by artist and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Jorge Pardo. Celebrated as both a work of art and a functional living space, the home’s striking redwood plank ceilings and paneling are it’s most character-defining elements. A u-shaped courtyard is encircled by linked redwood pavilions with floor-to-ceiling windows and steel roofs, a true sight to behold amongst the towering trees and surrounding woody area. One of the home’s four bedrooms is a detached en-suite studio, making it ideal for a workspace or for accommodating guests. Additional features of the artist-designed residence include a sunken living room, walls of glass, skylights, a broad stairway, and gorgeous concrete floors. Desired Sea View Lane features several significant architectural homes by James De Long, Harwell Hamilton Harris and others. Located a mere 10 minutes from the center of Downtown L.A., the home is also a part of the coveted Mount Washington Elementary School District.
