    Description

    An outstanding architectural opportunity: the Ain/Koenig residence has only been on the market 3 times in 70 years. This mid-century oasis was built by two legendary architects for Ben Margolis, which started in 1951 and then again in 1992, has been lovingly maintained & restored. The main house by Gregory Ain includes the original features of a bright open floor plan, clerestory windows, sliding glass walls, indoor/outdoor flow, and the true mid-century life. The guesthouse & pool by Pierre Koenig adds modernism with all of the original steel beam construction details in its most dynamic form. Civil rights lawyer Margolis, famous for defending the Hollywood 10, contracted Ain to build his personal residence while Koenig a few decades later, enriched the home with an added steel & glass guesthouse nestled into the Hills with views overlooking the pool and city. The property sits behind the gates in The Oaks neighborhood, home to celebrity estates.
