First offering since 1955: The Lee and Mary Blair Residence, 1939 - The real hidden treasure of Cahuenga Pass is not the fabled gold and silver buried in the 19th century, but rather this site of shelter for deer and the creative human spirit. Building with rigorous adherence to the principals of organic architecture, the artists and architect created a now timeless residence at one with its hillside garden site. The natural intimacy of the architecture is enhanced with the purposeful use of redwood and glass. From the grass topped concrete 2 car garage a nature trail snakes up to the entry of the three-story view residence which steps gracefully up the slope, incorporating an entry, open plan living/dining area, bedroom, bath, and studio or 2nd bedroom and half-bath at the top.
