Actress Alexandra Daddario and her new husband Andrew Form just bought a former surfer’s retro hangout in Mandeville Canyon for $2.8 million USD, according to
Dirt.com. The two-storey post and beam house is described as a treehouse that backs up to a steep hillside. Step inside the mid-century L.A. home below.
The listing describes the property as “the ultimate creative retreat” and was designed in the late 1950s by surfer-turned-architect
Matt Kivlin. The living room contains a pair of Ib Kofod Larsen lounge chairs reupholstered in a Pierre Frey fabric.
Rooms on the upper level open to a wraparound deck with forest-like views and guarantees privacy for the celebrity couple.
A shag carpet covers the loft space, which includes Joybird’s Eliot chair, a goldenrod Mario Bellini sofa and a Brazilian lounge chair from 1stDibs.
In the kitchen, classic square Fireclay tile gives an authentic mid-century canyon look, while platinum glass appliances reflect the surrounding trees and light. Vintage dining chairs are reupholstered in handwoven Guatemalan and Mexican huipiles, a Peruvian tapestry.
Terrazzo and glazed tile in the kitchen evoke a retro vibe.
White oak paneling and blonde hardwood floors bring the outside in.
The ensuite bathroom’s deep green tones draw in the hillside beyond the windows, and is echoed in rich Concrete Collaborative terrazzo with matching Fireclay tile and Reform cabinets.
Two guest bedrooms share a single bathroom done up in Pop-Art style pink-and-marigold Fireclay tile.
