This colorful and creative masterpiece has been meticulously restored by Maison D Artiste from the archives of Jim Tyler, the original architect who worked with Craig Ellwood. It is said to be as close to Ellwood’s original vision as possible.

A stunning example of mid-century design, features include original floor-to-ceiling jalousie windows, Terazzo floors, a gorgeous  brick and steel fireplace, and George Nelson pulls and soft close drawers.

Not to mention, walls of glass throughout that evoke an endless Southern California indoor-outdoor feeling.

The kitchen has been restored and upgraded with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances and custom cabinetry.

The first bedroom boasts a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows with backyard, pool and valley views.

The second bedroom feels almost as if it is free floating among the treetops.

The third bedroom is a horizontal box that is lifted pavilion-like off the ground above the carport. The studio makes for an excellent guest option for overnight guests or could be perfect as an artists retreat or office.

2977 Passmore is also gated and private, perched on a large 12,741 square foot lot that offers unobstructed views of the city below.

The sleek lap pool, the incredible views, and the desirable location create an unparalleled haven in the Hollywood Hills. 2977 Passmore Drive offers the opportunity of a lifetime to own part of American Mid-Century Modern history.
