This architectural home is the embodiment of Calvin C. Straub’s legacy as “the father of California Post and Beam architecture.” Taking full advantage of Southern California’s idyllic climate, this distinctive property at 3549 Laurelvale Dr in Studio City blends relaxing outdoor living areas with sophisticated interior spaces.
Set on a cul-de-sac, the home showcases views of the completely private backyard through floor to ceiling glass walls and large windows. A two story glass pavilion houses a floating ironwood stairwell and gives an overview of the saltwater pool and spa.
Lovingly restored with a tremendous amount of care and respect to the original design, the interior features an open gourmet kitchen with stunning wood cabinetry and cutting-edge appliances. The adjacent living room and dining area includes a fireplace, as well as dual sets of glass doors that access the exterior living spaces.
The current owner has appropriately embellished the generous master suite with an array of modern luxuries, including terrazzo and cork flooring, a large soaking tub, a separate steam shower, fireplace and private balcony. There is an en suite bedroom on the main floor, which offers views of the saltwater pool and lush landscaping. The office could easily be enclosed and used as a third bedroom.
The outdoors is landscaped with privacy and year-round beauty in mind, creating the modernist version of a “Monet Garden.” Photographed by famed architectural photographer Julius Shulman, and published in California Homes Magazine.
