There are perhaps only a few Los Angeles locations that 1942 Lemoyne brings to mind. The privacy and serenity of the Self Realization Fellowship in Echo Park? The lush and abundant grounds of the Huntington Gardens? One thing is for sure is that this house built by architect Rachel Allen is truly an original.

Rachel Allen’s other projects include the ATX Kitchen and the upcoming redevelopment of Pershing Square. Allen designed the split-level residence to peacefully coexist with the hillside and to create the sensation of true California indoor/outdoor living.

The interior spaces are immaculate and unique. The main entry leads into a living area that feels suspended in the trees, thanks in part to the line of windows that run along the home’s ceiling, which were laser-cut to create the appearance of oak trees overhead. And it really does. You won’t believe they aren’t real.

The home features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, open living and dining space, and custom built-ins throughout. Features include sustainably harvested walnut and concrete floors, Heath Ceramic tile, and walls of windows abound.

This massive property includes three parcels and over half an acre of land.

The grounds contain multiple outdoor areas for entertaining, quiet reflection, or urban farming. Every square inch of the property is usable.

The grounds won’t just feel like your own private park, they will be. Pathways lead to seating areas, rock gardens, and native plantings.

And, yes, your own chicken coop. Towering leafy trees include citrus, pomegranate, yucca, pine and eucalypse, plus native wildflowers and vegetable beds making this the perfect setting to grow your own herbs, vegetables, and fruits.

1942 Lemoyne’s aesthetic blurs the lines of the indoors and out. Private, peaceful, and phenomenal, this is a home with grounds you must see.

And we haven’t even yet mentioned the glorious mountain and city views.
