This steel-framed midcentury gem just hit the market.

The pool and the pool deck were redone in the renovation. Updates introduced a semicircular bench with a railing at the perimeter, a hot tub, a wood-clad sauna, and a cold plunge pool.

Located in Los Feliz, the Steel House was built by architect Neil M. Johnson in 1960. Inspired by the Case Study program, the home features a low, rectangular roofline with cantilevered eaves, expansive walls of glass, and a sturdy steel frame.

The Steel House also recently underwent a major renovation under the thoughtful guidance of architectural restoration specialist Mark Haddawy. The project introduced updates and improvements throughout, while still staying true to the home’s midcentury roots.

The L-shaped home wraps around the pool deck, which features extensive, lush landscaping.

Maroon 5 Guitarist James B. Valentine purchased the property in 2007, and the year-long renovation began in 2008. “It was great to see the house come back after so many unsympathetic changes,” says Haddawy. “I felt from the beginning that there was a great house under all of that.” And there is a great house—the steel-framed, L-shaped home is set in a lush, gated compound, and it offers spectacular views from almost every angle. 

A deck just off the living space overlooks the pool and provides a comfortable shaded area to enjoy the outdoors.
