A Work of Art: Modern Architectural Cabin in Los Feliz Oaks

Recently profiled in the Los Angeles Times and Curbed LA, this modern cabin in the coveted Los Feliz Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles is a visual delight and an artistic triumph from the trailblazing Shanghainese architect Tony Ngai.

Asking Price: $2,295,000
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 4
Square Feet: 2,138
Lot Size: 6,688 sf.
Year Built: 1978

In fact, for this stunning three bedroom modern marvel, Mr. Ngai was awarded first place in the prestigious California State Senate “Hollywood Beautification Award” in the Single Family Residential Category.

The charcoal-color stucco and knotless cedar exterior is sited on a spectacular spot in the Los Feliz Oaks hillside, the only neighborhood in Los Feliz within the Hollywood Hills’ 90068 zip code. Once inside you will find a singular design brimming with one-of-a-kind details, a rustic warmth, and expansive canyon views.

The incredible open library is a book lover’s dream complete with a track bookshelf ladder a la Harry Potter.

Step down to the recessed “conversation pit.” The “pit” or den, let’s call it, is an excellent and inviting space for both, yes, conversation and also lounging and curling up with a good book fireside or enjoying the stunning treetop views from the chaise.

The wonderful Connoisseur’s Kitchen appears straight from the pages of Architectural Digest. The kitchen features top-of-the-line Miele appliances, a farm sink, both custom open and hidden shelving, center island, subway tile backsplash that reaches the gorgeous wood beamed ceiling, and a built-in flat screen TV.

Plus a cozy custom window seat that welcomes you to take a breather when and if you need a moment during dinnertime meal preparation.

The enchanting dining room has its own patio. Indoor/outdoor flow was essential to Mr. Ngai’s body of work. This home was built to be site-specific and maximized to bring in the views of nature into the residence.

The home has epic canyon views that must be seen to be believed. Having a large dinner party and the headlining dish is taking a bit longer than expected? Your guests will love lingering in this home’s many captivating balconies and alcoves.

A chic half bath with beautiful gold fixtures is sure to delight visitors.

The exquisite master suite is an inspired space, a highlight in a home full of highlights.

The master suite has its own private patio.

And an en suite bath for the ages. The bath has a divine stand-alone soaking tub, a steam shower by Mr. Steam with bench seating…

…Custom floating vanities painted a deep royal blue, plus surround sound speakers, a Toto washlet bidet, and direct Hollywood sign views.

Not to mention a large walk-in closet sure to be the envy of any friends who may be lucky enough to take a complete tour of this exceptional home.

The second bedroom is every bit as luxe and stylish as the master.

And the third bedroom is no slouch either…it has its own balcony, floating orb light fixtures, and plenty of natural light.

Both the second and third bedrooms have lovely designated private baths.

Mr. Ngai, who is now practicing in the bay area, never designs the same house twice. 2547 Canyon Oak Drive’s outdoor top level is sure to amaze during the day and electrify in the evenings with its 360 degree views of Los Angeles’s city lights.

The home, to be blunt, is a work of art that brings inescapable joy to friends and family that come to visit and, of course, to whomever its lucky next owners will be.
