Home of the Week: A one-of-a-kind Midcentury in Beverly Hills

There’s indoor-outdoor living, and then there’s the Holt House by Hal Levitt. The architect to the stars built this Midcentury gem in the 1960s, and it takes full advantage of the California climate with a series of common spaces built around a courtyard and a bridge that runs from the owner’s wing over the swimming pool into the living room. The 1.4-acre estate also tacks on a rooftop deck and guesthouse surrounded by lush gardens and mature trees.
