Kienholz was one of the main sparks for the idea that became the L.A.-focused artist showcase Pacific Standard Time, and she never stopped advocating for the artists of Los Angeles to be written permanently into art history.

A long curving driveway leads to this inspiring creative sanctuary that boasts city to ocean views. The property  rests on a gentle, sloping, oversized lot surrounded by nature and flowers.

The large and flexible floor plan allows you to create the lifestyle of your dreams.

French doors and windows create create a light and bright space with a seamless flow to the grassy front yard and back patio.

The spacious living room features easy outdoor access, gorgeous hardwood floors, and a brick fireplace.

The french doors help to create the desirable Southern California indoor/outdoor lifestyle and were instrumental in the dinner parties, social get-togethers, and charity events hosted at the estate that usually lasted quite late into the evenings.

The charming kitchen has a beautiful wood beamed ceiling, handsome wood built-ins, and easy outdoor access.

A gigantic and flexible family room is the perfect spot to create a spot for lounging. The possibilities for this space are limitless.

The first floor master suite also opens to the lovely front yard.

The bedroom also has built-in book shelves, an en suite bath, and a large walk-in closet.

The first floor also boasts another bright and spacious bedroom with its own en suite bath.

All of the first floor bedrooms have outdoor access.

The private and secluded back patio is an excellent spot to entertain and enjoy the outdoor fireplace.

The expansive second floor features high open beamed ceilings and beautiful wide planked floors.

This great guest suite also has its own kitchen.

An open layout is primed for your own design. The space also has its own balcony, and several built-in bookshelves.

You decide whether to use the space as your master suite or as a relaxing spot for out-of-town overnight guests. The upstairs suite contains a large bath.

Also upstairs is the fifth bedroom which has its own private balcony and bathroom.

The estate was previously owned by German-born film director Henry Koster. Koster discovered Abbott and Costello working at a nightclub in New York. He returned to Hollywood and convinced Universal to hire them. Their first picture, which featured the Who’s On First? routine, was One Night in the Tropics. In 1950 he directed what was his biggest success to date, the James Stewart comedy Harvey.

Parking for 10+ cars encourages frequent entertaining.

Whether you are planning to move right in, restore, expand, or redevelop, this is truly a once in a blue moon opportunity to own an inspiring, creative, and private estate on nearly a full acre at the top of Hollywood Hills.

I would love to show you the captivating Casa Kienholz at 2737 Outpost Drive. Call me today at (323) 697-3040 or email me at jacqueline.tager@sothebyshomes.com.
