The home was built by architect Dante DeCicco in 1965. DeCicco specialized in homes built on hillsides and is experiencing a posthumous revival of sorts as several of his homes have hit the market in recent years that are characteristic of his contemporaries Lautner, Neutra, and Banta.

Outside, you will find private low maintenance patios with a retractable awning and a terraced yard. Inside, sharp lines and stylish touches indicative of the era.

The kitchen boasts original Frigidaire Flair duel ovens and new top-of-the-line Bosch stainless steel appliances.

Mid-century modern lovers may have field day touring the home, which has been impeccably maintained over its 50+ years of existence. The home consists of two bedrooms, plus a convertible third bedroom on main level and a separate bonus space.

Throughout the swinging ‘60s and the groovy ‘70s, the home was owned by Warner Brothers animator Don Foster.

Not only was Foster responsible for the main title card art for the Warner Brothers cartoons of the 1950s and 1960s, he also lent his talents to classic animated films, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Bugs Bunny/Road-Runner Movie, The Phantom Tollbooth, and A Garfield Christmas Special.

The open layout living and dining area is bathed in bright light.

A stately and timeless fireplace is sure to become the heart of the home when the cooler fall and winter months arrive in Los Angeles.

A second sitting area in the living room has easy indoor/outdoor access through a pair of glass sliders.

The nicely sized deck is partially covered and has sweeping treetop views of the Hollywood Hills canyon.

Downstairs, your spacious master bedroom awaits.

The master features its own private patio with calming canyon views.

A dressing area is adorned with a classic 1960’s wallpaper.

The en suite master bath contains a floating double vanity and a charming vintage storage unit.

The second bedroom contains plenty of a closet space and built-in bookshelves. Also below, there is a separate bonus space, ideal as an art studio, office, storage, or guest quarters.

The home also boasts a laundry room and a 2 car covered carport with direct access entry. The home was later owned by noteworthy celebrity hat designer Montez of the Millinery Guild Hollywood. From a young age, Montez knew she would become a Hollywood resident when she saw a photograph of her mother taken at Hollywood’s iconic Crossroads of the World in the 1930s that, she says, “looked like a Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire movie.” Her celebrity clients include Bette Midler and Gwen Stefani.

Outside, you will be delighted to find private and low maintenance patios and a terraced yard. 6261 Primrose Avenue exudes mid-century style and a creative and imaginative atmosphere that is sure to inspire for decades to come.
