L.A.-based pop artist Ed Ruscha recently picked up this unusually charming Spanish-inflected Beverly Hills late modern for $8.4 million.

Interestingly, the Trousdale Estates residence was marketed as a possible rehab or teardown even though the 1971-built home has been well preserved. The exterior is expressed in terra-cotta stucco, and the years have allowed vines to give it a secretive and romantic feel. A a river rock motor court and a tiled front walk stand as a prologue to the living style.

Within, the home is detail-rich, and quite faithful to its period, despite a few obvious renovations in the intervening years. The dining room’s panoramic wall covering is a heavily stylized embellishment, but the timber ceilings and tile weather time well.

The 3,443 square-footer features three bedrooms. The central living space is fairly large and stands out with built-in bookshelves, several sets of French doors, a fireplace, and a Spanish-style timber ceiling. The kitchen would benefit from a revision, and features two glass doors that allow for plenty of natural light.

Those large windows and glass doors were likely a selling point for Ruscha since they boast city views, and, in good weather, views of the Pacific and Catalina Island beyond the property’s secluding frame of green.
