Constructed in the late 1930s for silver screen actor Wallace Beery, this modern abode is one of only 15 single family homes in Los Angeles that were commissioned by the famed designer William Kesling.

As you approach, you will immediately note that it is distinguished by its green horizontal bands, along with a professionally landscaped yard and gardens that include cacti, a koi pond, and a deco-era tiled fountain.

Inside the home offers just over 1,600 square feet of living space, which includes three bedrooms, and two full baths, as well as pristine hardwood flooring, 10-foot ceilings, and a stunning Roman brick fireplace in the main living area.

Renovated since its early days, it also features several glass walls – which lend themselves to taking in the surrounding view, along with an updated kitchen that includes newer stainless steel appliances and plenty of cabinet space.

At one time in the 1930s, the home’s original owner Wallace Beery was actually considered to be the highest paid actor in the world – and he spared no expense in having this unique home designed to incorporate many elements of aviation and nautical detail.

Located at 947 N. Martel Avenue in Los Angeles, this one-of-a-kind home is being offered at $1.75 million. Private tours can be arranged for interested buyers.
