882 Doheny

Eight Eighty Two Doheny is a beautiful mid-century modern triplex compound. Originally built in 1952 as a five-unit apartment complex, it was converted for private ownership in the 1980s by Turkish interior designer Kalef Alaton. Totaling 5,600 sqft it is exceptionally large for the neighborhood it is in. There is one huge 4,000sqft owners unit that is 2br and 3ba and occupies the two story south building of the complex. There is an amazing studio unit that is 650 sqft and resides above the five car garage with a private walk out terrace covered by an awning, and a 1br/1ba office in the atrium.

One of the main reason’s I see someone buying this wonderful house, aside from its great one of a kind mid century architecture that makes it completely unique, is that privacy it offers, as well as its prime West Hollywood Norma Traingle location, plentiful outdoor space, and its size. It recently sold on the market for $3,750,000.

I love the house numbers ‘Eight Eighty Two’ that are written in amazing 60’s cursive. You can’t buy those numbers anywhere today.

This Mid Century utilizes a neatly trimmed box hedge in the entry that mixes in classical elements of a formal English Garden.  The angles of hedges complement the cubic shapes commonly used in modern designs. The landscaping gives a wide base of green for the structure to contrast and life to otherwise stark white.

The Geometric Iron Gate complication is both symmetrical and asymmetrical yet easy to understand. Cross checked iron stripes overlap rectangle rows to form the interlocking cross hatch pattern which delights and entertains – some sections look like fabric up close, and then the rectangle bands interrupt. The gates oversized proportions create a powerful first impression with sophistication and refinement. The gates voids give passerby glimpses inside.

This property has a gravel courtyard that serves as its crossroads and nucleus. The courtyard can be seen  looked in upon from interior windows. The walls are covered in Ivy- it feels when you arrive home like you entered a mountain forest retreat.

One of the most remarkable features of the interiors in 882 Doheny is the spiral staircase in the owners unit which leads up to the master bedroom.

There are a variety of methods to treat mold damage; remove damaged building materials, Scrape, sand, and wire brush affected surfaces and then apply Anti Fungal cleaner with a peroxide base, Hepa Vaccuum, Dry Ice blasting in some cases, and then finish with a microbial shield to inhibit future mold growth in remediation areas. Since every case of mold remediation is different, you won’t know what your mold remediation will entail until you have an expert on site.

Remediation usually doesn’t include the cost of sealing back up the walls. This is an additional expense. The mold remediation for a wall will run $2,000-$3,000 and then sealing the wall will cost another $1,000-$2,000.

Do you have any questions on mold or the potential of mold in a house you are looking to buy?
