Midcentury Residence Under the Hollywood Sign Designed by Robert Malinoff Lists for $1.65M

Designed by architect Robert Malinoff for his own family in 1958, this spruced-up residence emphasizes an outdoor connection.

The 1958 residence that architect Robert Malinoff designed for his own family while he was still a student at USC School of Architecture has hit the market. The post-and-beam house displays the classic tenants of midcentury design with a newly restored interior—and an impressive view of the iconic Hollywood sign.

The Malinoff Residence is located along Ledgewood Drive in the Beachwood Canyon neighborhood. Situated at the base of Mount Lee, the home offers a nearly unobstructed view of the legendary Hollywood sign perched above the home.

Only a few other owners have enjoyed the home since its construction, helping to preserve the structure’s original details. Most recently, the local real estate development firm HabHouse stepped in to restore other period details and complete necessary functional updates. Painted beams and wooden details highlight Malinoff’s design while other finishes restore a midcentury aesthetic. Offering a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the nearly 2,400-square-foot home was recently listed for $1,649,000.
