As head of a Los Angeles-based deal-sharing platform that’s known for helping savvy shoppers score the best products for the best prices — think a $6,100 TV and soundbar for just $150, a digital camera regularly priced at $548 for $95 and free drinks at Starbucks, just to name a few — it’s no surprise that Slickdeals CEO Josh Meyers got a relative real estate bargain when he picked up this alluring midcentury home crafted by noted starchitect Harold “Hal” Levitt.
First listed for $6.5 million at the start of the year and subsequently reduced to $6.25 million, the property — believed to be the only La Cañada Flintridge structure produced by the late architect, who designed residences for the likes of Olivia Newton John, Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin and Debbie Reynolds — ultimately went to Meyers for exactly $6 million.
Custom-built for a longtime executive and member of the family that owned the Roscoe Moss water company back in 1960, the split-level structure is tucked away down a lengthy gated driveway, on two 1-acre parcels of heavily wooded land, and fronted by an expansive motorcourt and a three-vehicle carport.
Inside, four bedrooms and 4.5 baths are sprawled across just under 5,000 square feet of living space boasting soaring ceilings, skylights, the original terrazzo floors and textured walls. Glass windows and doors throughout also offer seamless indoor-outdoor environs, along with picturesque mountain and treetop vistas.
Among the standout features are a spacious living room sporting a soaring white brick fireplace adorned with a raised hearth and wet bar-equipped family room, with both spaces spilling out to al fresco dining and lounging patios. There’s also a formal dining room, which connects to a corner kitchen outfitted with a walk-in pantry and breakfast nook.
Four bedrooms include a fireside primary suite with built-in shelves and a window seat, as well as a chocolate-hued bath donning dual vanities, a spa tub and unique indoor/outdoor shower. As for the picturesque grounds, they’re dotted with mature trees and greenery surrounding a striking tiled pool flanked by a sundeck. An added bonus: a detached gym and office nestled alongside a full, lighted tennis court.
