Afternoon Delight: Joe Dahan

 SELLER: Joseph “Joe” Dahan
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $9,995,000
SIZE: 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: We feel like indulging in a little afternoon pretty in the form of a gated and photogenic mini-compound in the Hollywood Hills with a main house originally designed in the late 1960s by en vogue mid-century modern architect Hal Leavitt and listed on the open market with an asking price of $9,995,000.

Property records show the current owner as Joseph “Joe” Dahan, a muckety-muck in the premium denim industry who scooped up the nearly one acre spread in October 2005 for $4,650,000.

A long curved driveway almost passes under a slightly cantilevered corner of the main house that current digital marketing materials show has five bedrooms and five bathrooms in an unspecified amount of square footage.  (For the record, the L.A. County Tax Man shows 3,726.) Copious amounts of travertine flooring and long walls of floor-to-ceiling glass panels and sliding doors make for a barely-there transition between the inside areas and outdoor spaces ringed by dense, privacy-ensuring foliage.

The property is lushly planted with what listing details call “period landscaping” and offers its cosseted occupants a private enclave of meandering paths, an organic vegetable garden, a couple of greenhouse, and a flat patch of lawn dotted with a couple of clean-lined play structures.

Perched on a verdant, stepped hillside above a narrow flat strip of lawn and and and a perpendicularly arranged water feature are two glass pavilions set on a muscular concrete foundation. One pavilion has a tree growing right through the middle that’s encased in a frameless glass shaft and both appear to be equipped with a sparse but high quality collection of bodily fitness equipment.

If any of you Hal Leavitt freak-fans think this might be you’re opportunity to stroll through the house during a public open house, we suggest you think again. Listing details make a point to to say “Private showings to qualified Buyers only.”

P.S. As far as this opinionated property gossip is concerned, the silver tile that lines the guest bathroom shower is glitzy, glam, and flagrantly conspicuous in all the best ways.
