Twelve of Gill’s buildings throughout Southern California are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and many others are designated as historic by local governments. Perhaps the thirteenth could be 6460 Odin Street? Gill’s architecture established “a new beginning in life and art” and represented a “grand rejection” of the common “architectural mise en scene from other times and places,” according to historian Kevin Starr. His work was described as “cubist” in publications of the time.

The home is serenely sited on the Hollywood Dell hillside. The home, also known as the Elizabeth Reed Residence, has wonderful indoor/outdoor flow, high ceilings, several skylights, and is flooded with natural light.

Not one, not two or three, but four sets of French doors lead to the outdoor spaces.

The beautiful fireplace is fully operational and up to code.

The home has many unique and stylish design elements.

Bookshelves and storage aplenty at this house.

The sleek remodeled kitchen comes fully equipped with commercial-grade Viking appliances.

Including this amazing stainless steel stove. A home chef’s dream. Notice also the floating open shelves.

There’s also a one-of-a-kind office alcove, perfect for the at-home writer or freelancer.

Each of the two bedrooms are nicely sized. The polished concrete flooring gives the home a modern loft-like feel.

The first bath is decked out in a sky shade of blue.

The second bedroom feels like a relaxing escape, the windows let in plenty of light but mature greenery outside makes the room private and peaceful.

The second bath is pristine and spacious.

The home has both front and rear outdoor spaces that provide fantastic SoCal indoor/outdoor living.

The tranquil spaces are completely enclosed, perfect for privacy and for our four-legged friends.

The giant backyard is a wonderful space to entertain and dine al fresco before a musical evening at the Hollywood Bowl nearby. With off-street parking and convenient access to hiking trails and the world-class dining, shopping, and nightlife of Hollywood Boulevard, 6460 Odin Street is a rare opportunity to own a significant architectural gem from on of Los Angeles’s early masters in the incredible Hollywood Dell neighborhood.
