MidCentury Maven's Hancock Park Home

Does the MidCentury digs above look familiar? You might recognize it from the film Running With Scissors. Or if you're really real estate aware, you'd know it belongs to Star magazine gossip columnist, Janet Charlton. Her David Hyun (AIA) designed Hancock Park home is now on the market for a stratospheric price that puts the 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms in the same category as the movies: make believe. More photos and details under the jump...

There's a lot of inspiration inside this temple to MidCentury decor, especially the dreamy palette of soft 1950's colours with the 1960's-70's shapes. But we'd have to agree with the Real Estalker, the overall effect does come off too "much mid-century modern furniture store than it does a modern home". Still, who wouldn't want to sip cocktails and nosh on some rumaki in that living room? We're indeed far from heaven.

A little bit more about Janet Charlton and her home here.
