Originally Built in 1939, the Alfio Bissiri House is notably referred to as the hidden R.M. Schindler. This home has had a thoughtful renovation with recognition to the architectural provenance and the original intended design of the home. Sited on a west facing lot in the coveted Franklin Hills and overlooking Hollywood encompassing views to Griffith Observatory and to the ocean, steps down from the street, a manicured front garden of succulents and a spectacular pine tree are the approach to the front door and entry. The main floor and social/entertaining level features an open plan living space that leads both outside through walls of glass to the balcony and loggia and the eat-in kitchen and powder room. On the lower level of the home are the private rooms: Two BDRM's of which one is the primary suite. The 2nd bedroom has been currently designed as a billiard room and creative space. Lastly, the back yard features a garden of succulents and bamboo. Truly a unique offering.
