A true illustration of mid-century modern design, this Los Angeles, SoCal home blends history with easy living. Predicted to sell fast, 2018 Castle Street includes countless designer details. This property was originally crafted by Schwen Wei Ma for Peter Soo Hoo, the cofounder of Chinatown. Although the home has been reimagined by Corinne Mathern, the original 1950s charm still shines through. The home includes four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. Listed by James Davis and Johnathan Nash at Carolwood Estates, 3018 Castle Street was listed at $3 million and, not surprisingly, already under contract.
The layout of this home is intended to maximize indoor-outdoor living. The typical floor-to-ceiling mid-mod windows allow natural light to stream through the home. A wrap-around patio and outdoor entertaining space are proof that the exterior of this home has been well-planned.
Although this home has many classic 1950s elements, the two-story layout is unique. Rather than the traditional rambler style, the 2,674 square feet of living space spans two levels. The master suite is the shining star of the property, with a spa-inspired bathroom and cozy layout.
Handmade tile and wood paneling are just a couple of the standout materials included in this home. The entire residence has influences from the works of Jacques Tati, Michelangelo Antonioni, William Eggleston, and Jean Prouv.
While most modern homes tend to stick to a neutral color palette, Corinne Mathern added deliberate pops of color for a playful touch. This home is both contemporary and creative. The living space has been designed to optimize effortless style. In addition to the four bedrooms, a home office completes the fashionable and functional floor plan.
Walnut paneling is an element used consistently throughout the home. This callback to mid-century interiors makes the space look timeless. Beyond the classic wood, Mathern included steel by PSS Design Cult, mood lighting by Atelier de Troup, and drapes by Pierry Frey. Every finish is top-of-the-line.
2018 Castle Street boasts an elegant flow, ideal for entertaining. A wet bar and open floor plan invite guests to kick back, relax, and socialize. Guests can move freely throughout the space and move between the interior and exterior with ease.
Complete with strategic skylights, the bright and breezy quality of this property is what gives it character. High-end appliances and central heating and cooling have been added for ultimate quality and comfort. Each corner of this home has been upgraded with consideration and care.
In front of the home, the gated driveway encompasses a spacious motor-court and two-car covered carport. The entire lot spans 7,474 square feet. A rare find overall, this mid-century modern property is located in the heart of Silver Lake. It is adjacent to the Silver Lake Reservoir and a stone’s throw from trendy Silver Lake Boulevard.
