Jamie Tisch, Socialite, Relists Sun-Drenched Midcentury in Sunset Strip
This mid-century modern property located above Sunset Plaza was purchased by socialite and philanthropist Jamie Tisch approximately 2.5 years ago, and has recently been listed again for sale at the same price at which she purchased it. The cost has been estimated to be 2.5 times what she paid for it when she originally purchased it.
It was built in 1962 on a very steep driveway and a pie-shaped lot that led to the construction of this two-story house. A Russian-born structural engineer by the name of William Porush, who worked with Pierre Koenig on a number of projects, was behind the design of the Stahl House/Case Study No. According to building permits, the Stahl House/Case Study No. Architect Richard Kearney and John Pugsley designed the platform houses in Montecito Heights.
According to Rich Report, this 60-year-old residence was refurbished, giving it a whole new lease on life. This house had a lot of work to do when it was first listed for sale in June 2020 and you can see from the listing photos that there was a lot of work to be done on the house.
With a pair of fluted-glass panels flanking a set of jaunty red doors, a flight of stairs leads you to them. On the main level of the 3,517-square-foot home, which is accessible via double doors, are three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a dining area, and an open-plan living area.
To the right of the entrance hall is the main suite, which has a spacious walk-in closet and dressing area, while to the left are the other two bedrooms and bathrooms. Soffits, clerestory windows, Miele appliances, wood wall paneling and a fireplace in the living room are some of the highlights.
Glass walls surround the expansive living and dining areas, which slide open to a spacious terrace with a deep roof overhang. In a corner of the terrace, an iron staircase leads down to a lower-level patio with a barbecue station and lounge area overlooking the salt water pool, as well as a covered deck for private dining. It has a family room with a custom built-in bar, an ensuite guest room, and a laundry room on the lower level, as well as direct access to the home's two-car garage.
It is worth mentioning that Aspen, Tisch's hometown, is home to Pitkin Projects, a retail space stocked with artists' works from around the world, which was purchased for $2.7 million by Tisch the same year that he bought the property.
In order to get the most out of your property, the .25-acre property is listed for $7 million with Andrew Rhoda of Carolwood Estates, located a few blocks north of the Soho House and Bird Streets Club, which is a members-only hotspot.
