Actor Brian Gerharty recently listed his unique Hollywood Hills home for $799,000.
“The Alienist” star picked up the Cahuenga Pass-area residence for $675,000 about 12 years ago. The mid-century home is an architectural anomaly in the best way. At just 1,100 square feet, the two-story is compact, but the design is remarkable. A 1970’s anachronism, it is divided into a pair of connected sections, and is expressed in raw timber, plenty of glass, and nook-and-cranny layout.
Gerharty’s residence is reminiscent of a mountain cabin placed on stilts on a very steep hillside. Gravity be damned, and the views are terrific. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom boat house-style residence was designed by architect Harry Gesner.
Residents enter the main living area via a concrete platform that also serves as the carport. Once inside, the cozy combination living and dining room stands out with large windows, a wood-beamed cathedral ceiling, a vintage wood stove on a tile hearth, and cork floors.
Most impressive, though, is the back wall of glass windows and sliders opening to a balcony with views of Cahuenga Peak and the Hollywood Sign.
Gerharty’s multiple upcoming film appearances include the lead role in this year’s ‘The Standoff at Sparrow Creek.’ The film is due in theaters this fall.
