1936 William Kesling Streamline Moderne asking $1.25M in the Cahuenga Pass

By Pauline O’Connor

Located in the Cahuenga Pass not far from Universal Studios, this jaunty 1936 residence is believed to be the work of Streamline Moderne master William Kesling.

Closely resembling Kesling’s Adams House in Silver Lake, the three-bedroom home sports many original elements, such as horizontal steel casement windows, portholes, fluted glass, curved walls, three-quarter sawn oak floors, and a magnesite staircase. The home’s kitchen and baths, however, appear to have undergone a rather zany makeover at some point in the ’90s.

On a lush, .32-acre lot, the property also features a bonus studio with half-bath, an outdoor bar, a fiberglass hot tub, multiple decks and patios, and a detached two-car garage.

It’s listed with an asking price of $1.249 million.
