Ryan Murphy's Midcentury Modern, Estate of the Day
Writer Ryan Murphy created two shows which take a slant look at the focus on appearance, the plastic surgery drama "Nip/Tuck" and the underrated high school dark comedy "Popular" as well as writing the screenplay and directing the 2006 movie "Running With Scissors." This talented man has some lovely taste in real estate. The Real Estalker Mama reports that he bought the home in the hills above West Hollywood in 2001 which has been restored into a modern beauty. The home is tucked in a woodsy lot with plenty of privacy. The home, which was designed by modernist architect Carl Maston has big glass walls, concrete floors, and gleaming wood.
At 3,210 square feet the home might be a little small by Los Angeles mansion standards and some of the smaller rooms seem a little dark but overall it's a rather perfectly decorated with furniture that fits the era of the home. Like the Real Estalker Mama, I don't love the use of a urinal in a home bathroom and the kitchen seems like a tough place to cook dinner with more than one person. Small quibbles on a truly charming residence. It is listed at $4.195 million.
