Photographer Mark Seliger sells Richard Neutra-designed home
Portrait photographer Mark Seliger has sold his Richard Neutra-designed house in Los Feliz for $4.52 million -- just above the asking price of $4.5 million.
Considered a prime example of Neutra’s Midcentury Modern home designs, the 1949 Alpha Wirin House was restored to maintain its architectural integrity. Wood ceilings and built-in furniture grace the interiors.
The 2,262 square feet of living space contains family and living rooms, a dining area, an office/den, two bedrooms and three bathrooms. Balconies expand the living space outdoors.
Walls of glass allow views of the cityscape and surrounding hillsides.
The nearly three-quarter acre of grounds is planted with palms and succulents. Steps lead to a swimming pool below the two-story house.
Seliger’s portrait subjects have included President Obama, singer-songwriter Mick Jagger and Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. Seliger has shot covers for publications such as Rolling Stone and GQ.
He paid $1.575 million for the house more than a decade ago and worked with designer Mark Haddawy on the restoration.
Aaron Kirman of John Aaroe Group was the listing agent.
