The Singer Laura Pergolizzi Tunes into a Groovy Modernist House in the Hills
This ultra-cool Los Angeles time capsule was on the market for the first time in 2022 with much fanfare, but it was not until nearly a year later and several price reductions that Laura Pergolizzi, better known to fans simply as "LP," finally received it. It is now the singer and songwriter of the hit single “Lost on You” who owns a slick midcentury modern house near the Cahuenga Pass area of Hollywood Hills in which he lives. He has written songs for Cher, Christina Aguilera and Rihanna.
In late 2018, executive producer Logan Levy ("Billionaire Boys Club," "Dallas Buyers Club") paid almost $1.4 million for the place, and it has now been listed on the market for almost a year. The property languished on the market for more than three years with an asking price of $3.2 million, which was reduced multiple times before eventually selling to LP at a steep discount after languishing on the market since spring 2022.
Cecil B. DeMille’s boom operator Cecil Gardiner and his wife Mary Jane lived in this three-bedroom, four-bathroom house built in the early 1950s on a flat parcel of land covering less than a quarter of an acre, which was hidden behind walls and gates. Alvin H. Galpert, an undergraduate student at the USC School of Architecture, designed this post-and-beam structure, which has since been thoughtfully maintained and updated.
Boasts about 2,100 square feet of single-level living space with slate and wood cork floors, tongue-and-groove ceilings, wood paneling, built-ins, and clerestory windows, as well as large expanses of glass that allow the indoors and outdoors to seamlessly blend.
It is topped by a covered entryway that opens directly into a foyer that leads into a bright-blue front door. After that is the family room, where there is an integrated seating area with a marigold-hued sofa and the living room, where there is a wet bar and a fireplace with brick inlay, where the main feature of the room is an integrated seating area.
According to Rich Report, the property features an open concept living area with a dining area abutting the kitchen, which is furnished with orange Formica countertops, a Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, an oven in mint condition made of Western Holly, as well as cabinetry embellished with antique chrome hardware.
All of the bedrooms, including the main suite, are sequestered in a separate wing of the building, where you will find a walk-in closet in addition to a luxurious bath equipped with dual vanities and a soaking tub, as well as a spacious closet in the secondary suite.
An expanded bonus room includes an infrared sauna, which opens onto the freshly redesigned backyard, which hosts a fresh pool and spa, which are surrounded by a sundeck made of Ipe wood, as well as a pergola for alfresco dining. Also, one of the garages has been outfitted with a brand new electric charger and there is a one-car garage as well.
