LA aaroe
When is a home more than a home? When it’s a Hollywood Hills Mid-Century masterpiece by Richard Neutra. And this exquisite Neutra, currently listed by our firm, doubled as an on-screen star. In this edition, we’ll track down some of the LA area houses like this one with roles in film and TV … and you’ll learn how you could get your home an audition.

Speaking of stars, our associates have just put us among the LA Business Journal’s Top 10 Real Estate Companies once again. I couldn’t be prouder of each one of them.

John Aaroe
When architectural beauties go Hollywood

Any home designed by the revered Richard Neutra naturally captures the architectural spotlight. But the 1953 Schaarman House is owned by advertising icon Jeffrey B. Gorman — a man who appreciates its star appeal as much as its dramatic beauty. With his help, it’s amassed a string of film and commercial credits that any human actor would envy. The home at 7850 Torreyson Drive in the Hollywood Hills has just been listed at $8,000,000.
Set back above Mulholland in a quiet, gated cul-de-sac on nearly an acre, the Schaarman Home reflects Neutra’s signature love of experimentation, connection to nature, and simple geometry. It’s highlighted by walls of glass, long sweeps of beamed hardwood ceiling and a massive rough stone fireplace. more »

That place looks strangely familiar THAT PLACE LOOKS STRANGELY FAMILIAR

No, you’re not having a Twilight Zone moment. Greater LA has served as one big movie set since movies were born — and your chances of spotting famous locations here are very high. (A lot higher since La La Land.) Nevertheless, it’s easy to zip right by the Golden Girls house or the Pretty Woman fire escape without even knowing it. That’s where guides like these come in. more »
Could your home find stardom? COULD YOUR HOME FIND STARDOM?

Filmmakers pay well for the privilege of putting the right property on camera. Your home doesn’t have to be a Neutra or a mansion to get cast; plenty of movie scenes call for, um, humbler settings. Not surprisingly, The California Film Commission runs a whole website dedicated to helping you market your place for the movies, complete with links to regional film offices and tips on how to get ready for your home’s closeup. Annnnd action! more »
La La Land - live at the Bowl! LA LA LAND - LIVE AT THE BOWL!

Once La La Land won Academy Awards for best original score and song, could a world concert tour be far behind? La La Land in Concert: A Live-to-Film Celebration, will debut in Los Angeles on Memorial Day weekend, May 26 and 27, with composer Justin Hurwitz conducting his score for a 100-piece symphony orchestra, choir and jazz ensemble accompanying the film’s original vocal recordings. more »
