The stylish modernist home of George and Rena Poulos, owners of L.A.’s iconic Pann’s restaurant, has sold in Baldwin Vista in an off-market deal for $2.025 million.
That’s a new price record for the western Baldwin Hills neighborhood, where previous high-water sales were around $1.62 million, records show.
Though not as recognizable as Pann’s, which has served as a backdrop in the films “Pulp Fiction” and “xXx,” the 1960s estate boasts an architectural pedigree of its own. The 2,822-square-foot floor plan is a showcase of Midcentury Modern style, with features such as walls of glass, terrazzo floors and a dual-sided fireplace.
Ashwood cabinetry fills the kitchen, which also features double Thermador ovens and a cork-walled wet bar. In the master suite, floor-to-ceiling windows overlook a back patio with a pool.
A terrace takes in sweeping views of the city, and the nearly half-acre grounds also hold a garden and a row of lemon trees.
