Hollywood Hills Mid-Century Post & Beam & Pool | 2953 Nichols Canyon

This absolutely stunning mid-century modern post and beam home in the Nichols Canyon Colony in the Hollywood Hills was built in 1958. When I first laid eyes on this three bedroom beauty I was surprised it wasn’t designed by famed mid-century architect William Krisel, perhaps best known for his pioneering and influential post and beam homes in Palm Springs. In fact, I’m still not quite convinced it isn’t.

The architect’s signature clean and simple contemporary design and modular post-and-beam construction plus expansive use of glass and open floor plans that melded indoor and outdoor living spaces seem imprinted all over 2953 Nichols Canyon Road.

Upon entering you’re greeted by a large travertine hearth, which I am told was sourced from the same travertine as The Getty Museum, and an indoor-outdoor zen-like fountain. Rich wood floors are found throughout the open living space, which was intentionally designed to bring the outdoors in with these massive floor-to-ceiling and clerestory windows.

The great chef’s kitchen features an amazing skylight that amplifies the kitchen’s brilliant design.

A small dining room opens to the grassy backyard, which has its own lovely zen-inspired rock fountain.

The spacious primary bedroom has walls of windows that bathe the room in gorgeous natural light, plus easy outdoor access to the lush backyard.

The simple yet chic en suite bath has both a soaking tub and a walk-in shower with bench seating, a dual vanity with plenty of storage, and another great skylight.

The second bedroom provides more walls of glass, clerestory stories, and a stunning built-in floating wood desk.

While the third bedroom may be just a tad smaller than the previous two, it has more of those great windows and, by now, you must notice the jaw-dropping wood beamed ceiling runs throughout the home.

These two bedrooms share the home’s second full bathroom.

French doors open onto the luxuriously private backyard which is fully surrounded by hedges.

The flat grass yard, swimming pool, and spa are just the beginning. There’s also a lovely outdoor dining area with more of that exquisite travertine.

Multiple areas to lounge or entertain, and a dozen or more mature shade trees, abound on the oversized 10,000 sq. ft. lot.

This property also has a three car garage and excellent curb appeal. While the home itself is nearly 75 years old, it has been lovingly maintained by prideful owners over the course of decades to keep this mid-century home firmly planted in the present, while honoring its sharp and stylish modernist roots.
