What happens when an art curator puts his home on the market? The home itself acts as a living exhibit. Recently, Los Angeles County Museum of Art curator emeritus Maurice Tuchman put his Hollywood Hills West home on the market with an asking price of $5.75 million.
The hilltop compound, built in 1995, was designed especially for Tuchman by museum architect Brent Saville and had a silver screen appearance in the 1999 film “The Limey,” directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by Lem Dobbs. With curved walls made of floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of mountains, ocean and cityscapes, the house is breathtaking in scale, views and amenities.
One unique feature is a duo of windows showing sweeping views of two juxtaposing worlds: a protected canyon parkland, and a bird’s eye view of downtown Los Angeles.
The kitchen is home to more than just state-of-the-art appliances; a tile mural depicts an apocalyptic projection of Capital Records being overtaken by natural elements and the passing of time.
In addition to the three-bedroom main house, the space also has an office tower overlooking the swimming pool. The two buildings are connected by a bridge, although unfortunately, it is not a drawbridge.
